This would be a significant reason but also you would need these things in the correct area. If you have nuclear experience but cannot work in the UK nuclear industry for security reasons it does not take much working out that you have cut off the area in which you have your greatest experience.
You need to check the equivalence of your qualifications to our UK ones and then add this onto your CV and then contact some staff (employment) agencies and go see them. They normally have a good feel on the jobs market and will at least advise you where your strengths and weaknesses are. Keep trying and something will come up eventually.
