I have been applying for different jobs from my home country (where I am working currently) but it doesnt seem to work. I am expecting at least a 70K job to start with otherwise it wouldnt make no economic sense to move. My Tier 1 visa will get expired in November next year which means I should reach UK ASAP and my earnings should start from october this year.
Given your age, you have quite a few years of experience to back your application however, there are a few points to consider when trying for a role in the UK
1. A starting salary of Â£70k though not impossible is very improbable initially
2. Depending on your exposure, domain experience, international/ global work experience etc you could look at higher salaries
3. As you have not mentioned specifics of what you work on, your niche skills, there is no way anyone on this board can provide practical advice so would help if you elaborate on your experience and area of work
All said and done, though the market is opening up with more jobs openings, those earning in the region of Â£70k have either worked in a big company and come up through the ladder to that level or have 10 to 15 years experience if taken as a lateral hire....and once again, its tough, extremely tough to expect Â£70k but as I dont know your professional background I cannot state how easy or difficult it will be for you
