I'm sure you have read this type of post before, so I apologise.
We (me, the wife & brand new baby) are hoping to move up in the next 12 - 18 months. We've visited before, and am coming back up in September. We love all of the Scottish islands and have been lucky enough to visit most of the big ones. lovers of Mull in particular. We are mid to late 30s so have decided that Shetland has a bit more going on to suit our lifestyles at the moment. We like to go to Norway and other Arctic areas for our holidays, last year was Svalbard.
I'm a construction site manager with my trade being a carpenter, but would do a career change to get the move. so, obviously a job is needed, along with a new home. not sure which one to secure first? ive sent out a few emails job related but have had no reply is a job difficult to get? would it be a good idea to train as something else? as certain jobs are easier to get than others.
Our trip in September will be one with a view to find a great location. in my head, we will have a home looking out to the sea, with some neighbours near by but not too busy an area.
Also, my wife will eventually need to get back to work but in the meantime, we would like her to make friends with a similar interest atm, a baby!
Thanks for taking to time to read this, and look forward to any reply's with advise.
