I recently advertised for a new position on our site and got lots of replies but out of a shortlist of 3, 2 of the best candidates found it off their own back and one got it. Both were head and shoulders above the rest who just relied on agencies.

Do you know any one in UK before you venture there? What I am looking for is the network connection, the only reliable source of employment opportunity.

I think this is definately the best way to go about it. Of all the interviews and jobs I have had in the UK and abroad, none have been through recruiters.
The only problem is, how do you find companies who are hiring, and have advertised postions on their website? Did your company advertise the job on monster directly, like some do? The agents have all the job openings, because companies don't usually disseminate job postings outside of their own websites.
