Day 92 of 365: Work Work Work, Senora, Work it All the Time
Looked up on the internet to find out how I get my National Insurance Number, or NI Number for short.
In order to work in England, you need to have one of these for tax purposes.
So, I phoned the office, and freaky thing about it is, I was already in the computer! The woman I spoke with said that once you enter the country on a visa that allows you to work, the Job Services office is notified. They just sort of hang back until you contact them, I suppose.
Buuutt...I qualified for a mail in application (some people have to go and interview in order to apply), so I should be receiving my application in the post within the next week.
Then I can work (eventually). Still no word yet on a job, buuuttt, then again, I haven't even been living in England for a week yet.
