So I'm Australian, but living as a Permanent Resident in The Netherlands. I know I'm free to work anywhere in the Schengen zone with certain conditions etc.
BUT - how about non-Schengen countries like the UK? They say you must be an EU CITIZEN in order to work in the UK and that they do not recognise permanent residents as being "citizens" and they only look at the passport of the person coming to the country.
This is from the un-Help desk on the Home Office phone line, so I'm not sure this is correct, but the consulate won't help either. Any ideas?
