Securing employment from abroad? (London)

Hi everyone,

I am just curious if anyone has had any luck securing employment while not currently living in the UK.

I am a native English speaker (American) but with the legal authorization to work in the UK. I have a masters degree in Counseling / student services and I am very interested in securing employment in a study abroad office / student services position in London.

There seem to be plenty of opportunities that I am more than qualified for, to which I have applied, however I haven't received any responses. I am currently living in Spain so I am wondering if it's because I am not physically in London. I have made it clear in my cover letters that I am willing to travel for interviews and relocate at my own expense.

How likely is it to secure employment while living in Spain, or am I just wasting my time applying?

Any insight is appreciated!
