Python work in UK

P: n/a
Hi,

I'd love to work in Python, for the sake of my blood pressure, but there
doesnt seem to be that many jobs that look for Python as the main skill.
I use Python at work from time to time, and occasionaly get to spend
several days on a Python project but the majority of the time I use C++.
How can I make that leap to working with Python? There doesn't seem to
be many UK positions on the jobs section of Python.org or the usual jobs
sites. Any recommended jobs sites or tips? (I have googled)

In the off chance that a potential empolyer is reading this, I'm looking
for something in web development, applications, graphics or other
interesting field. Here is a copy of my CV.

Hi,

A few suggestions, you may have tried them already:

Search for UK Python jobs on major job sites like Monster, Dice, etc.
Some (like Monster) have country-specific sites, I think. I know
Monster has an India-specific site, it probably also has one for the
UK.

Have you considered the option of being a freelancer and working via
Net job sites like eLance, Guru.com, oDesk?

Also check out the Python job board at

Hi Will

I recommend 'cwjobs.co.uk' and 'reed.co.uk'. I got my current (Python)
contract through MCG recruitment (mcg-recruitment.com), and I've just
accepted a Python/Zope position through sienared.com - both of these
are in London and came via CWjobs. I don't know about the rest of the
country but there is definitely pure Python work in London if you look
for it.

Good Luck.

Gerard
