In answer to your question, yes my friend would like to stay permanently and work but I know this could be tricky as I know the UK government want skilled workers. My friend can speak Arabic and French fluently, Spanish and English also but not as fluent as the first two languages.
My friends job in Morocco is as a hotel restaurant manager and has a Diploma in Tourism if that helps.
I do realise that to stay long term and work may not be possible because of the new government rules, so just need to know best options of visa.
