    Unanswered: UDB Developers in Scotland, where are you all?

    I am interested to ask a question of the forum and its well educated members of the DB2/UDB community - what's wrong with Scotland as a location to live and work?

    I am recruiting (or trying to!) for a number of prime clients who require contract UDB 'development' skills in Scotland's Central Belt area, but I see good ones as often as I have seen the Loch Ness Monster - why is that?

    For those UDB developers who have never ventured here let me tell you that it is a wonderful place, full of beautiful countryside and great people who always make newcomers welcome, usually with a wee dram (whiskey to those of you who may not know what a dram is).

    Anyone have any thoughts on where they exist and how I can find them, or equally if you would like to help a lady in distress, do you know anyone who is currently looking for a new role or anyone who would simply like to have a discussion about the UDB market?

    I hope you'll be kind enough to respond with your thoughts and maybe your help

    Best wishes

    If you are looking for a UDB Devloper Expert, I'm sure you are not alone in the frustration ... It will be shared by recruiters across the coutry ...

    UDB Development/DBA Expertise (I mean it) in the UK is quiet scarce ..

    Easier option is to get an experienced database developer and cross-train to db2 ... Of course, I know, not many companies want to do that ...

    Good luck ...

    Cheers

    Re: UDB Developers in Scotland, where are you all?

    I had a look at idug india site ...

    One FAQ says:

    I'm an employer, can I post a job offering to the list?
    India DB2 User Group is NOT to be used as a forum to advertise/post job offers or approach members for the same.


    You may be better off posting in a job related site ... Yahoo India may be a good starting point to get a list of sites , if you are interested

    Cheers
