    Have you tried the smaller software/hardware vendors? What about jobsites, like Monster, Jobcentre Plus, jobsite, etc?

    Have you tried to get an alternative job to presales? Worse case scenario, you have to wait.

    Currently been working for one of this companies but in other region, so trying first of all to get job there. Of course I know about job sites, but you know, approaching vendors directly is the best way. If i fail I'll go through job sites

    Odd, I know some of those vendors have hiring freezes in place, but I still get emails daily from recruiters who want me at one of those vendors.

    Good luck on your quest mate

    I thought it was through PBS sponsorship only?

    Sorry mate but you're wrong. Anyone can go through Tier1, no restrictions to an occupation.
    It is offtopic here, isnt it? :) No need of sponsorship and so on

    It is only when you are going under PBS Tier2 scheme. It was called Work Permit before mid this year
