Safeskys still advertising a vacancy at North Denes. It says APC as well as ADI, but they might take you with just ADI. They have been known to send people from North Denes on APC courses.
Edit:
Just discovered Safeskys have vacancies also for 'an island off the UK mainland', looking for SATCO and ATCOs preferably with ADI/APP/OJTI/Met Obs. same as at North DenesSafeSkys Air Traffic Control Services, Air Traffic Control Engineering, Bird Control & Wildlife Management

Your guess is as good as mine! Unlikely to be Isle of Man or Isle of Wight after all.

Perhaps unsuitable for someone just starting out in ATC, but on the theme of vacancies, there's a new SATCO position going at Wick, with HIAL.

Re: your search - keep going. Write to the smaller airfields, work as an assistant to begin with. Anything to get your foot in the door. Keep an eye on the Serco site too - occasional things crop up there too.

Best of luck.

Yes, Im trying, Ive applied for ATCA positions in Serco dozens of times but never been successful, and never had an answer why.

However Ive reapplied in the position now opened.

Im also thinking about working in other countries, does anyone know the possibilities of working in any english or spanish talking country?

Try Eurocontrol Maastricht. They are recruiting new ab-initios starting next year, you meet the age requirements (max. 25) and they pay your training and a salary on top, not like you had to do in Spain. Selection process and training is hard to get through like in many other ANSPs but you'll never know if you don't try. Also, for your integration to be easier, several spanish controllers are working there as well , among many nationalities, you don't really feel like an expat as most of the staff there are from outside the NL too. Good luck.

I'm sure FerroNATS might be interested. T&Cs are pretty awful though

Thank you! I'll give it a shot.

I didnt pass their first psychological interview (had a bad day and wasnt feeling confident that day), and they are covering all the positions they have, with the people that passed. Also theyve now signed an exclusive contract with Jerez ATC College, so its even harder to get in. However I still call them from time to time, but nothing.

Scatsta are recruiting at the moment (Serco).

As are Humberside, for an ATSA position (though temporary, I am led to believe).

Hi,

Im about to graduate in a month and as there are no positions available here. I would like to know if any ACC, TWR, or RAD -unit in Europe or Middle east are recruiting qualified controllers.

If every thing goes as planned I would be having ADI/TWR/RAD, APS/RAD and ACS/RAD ratings.

So if any of you have some ideas where to apply, I would be grateful.
Im ready to go abroad to broaden my horizons and to get good experience in air traffic control.

Hey, up there in Finland, are you doing all three ratings at once? And do you validate all those three at operational units?

Hi,

Actually we were supposed to have only ADI/TWR/RAD and APS/RAD before we graduate but surprisingly our course had a chance to get the basic training for ACS/RAD also. Altough ACS/RAD course doesn't include any OJT part or unit training. So we are just getting the rating.

For the ADI/TWR/RAD and APS/RAD part we did OJT in different airports in Finland and got the validated licences to that unit we were training.

So why didn't those unit employ you afterwards? Why put someone through a training plan and validate them and then chop them?

Thats mainly because of slight oversupply on qualified ATCO's in here and units are not recruiting.

I don't understand how euro control continue to get away with this policy.

Surely it is completely against all EU anti discrimination legislation.
