Hi thank you for your message, you may be able to obtain work in the UK but to do so you will need to find an employer who can sponsor you using a Tier 2 work visa. You can check the attached list and see if any of these would be likely to employ you, check if they have vacancies you would be interested in. If they would then they may agree to sponsor you as they are already registered as being able to sponsor visa holders, you can check the list here:
