non-EU citizen applying for work permit (Brussels)

Hi all,

A little tricky question to ask of those who are familiar with EU and/or Brexit regulation.

I am Taiwanese now working in a Belgian company as a trainee.
As the contract is maturing, I am now seeking new opportunities.
It would be fantastic if I were to relocate to London, however, as a non-EU citizen I am now encountering some issues with applying for a work permit (be in Belgium or in the UK)

- Is it wiser to relocate to London after Protected content ? (so that EU and non-EU citizens are treated the same regarding work permit application )

- How does non-EU citizen usually cope with the work permit if the first offer does not exceed the minimum annual salary 42k Euros?

- By any chance, anyone is working full-time with a working holiday permit?
