King Air jobs anywhere?

Hi, Anyone know how valuable a King Air rating is these days?
I have a current BE-90/99/100/200 rating with few hours on type,

I have +1300 hrs total, including 1000 hrs PIC and about 350 hrs on the PA-31-350.
I am currently freelancing on the Kingair for my current company but I can't expect guaranteed employment unless someone above me on the seniority list drops out. (Which is unlikely)
I've only just started looking around, so any ideas would be immensely appreciated.

Best of luck to everyone out there job hunting!

A while back Gamma Aviation were looking for guys for their Scottish Air Ambulance contract. Maybe give them a shout?

TOO LOW:

total de minimum 1500 heures de vol en CDB dont 1000 en CDB bi-turbines

Think that might be prohibitive to the OP.

Thanks for the replies guys, I've also been looking into King Air operators across the pond.
I've heard that one of mine ATPL classmates got a job with a PA-31 / BE-20 operator with a base in Thompson, Manitoba.
However, I haven't found out the name of that particular airline.

TOO LOW:

total de minimum 1500 heures de vol en CDB dont 1000 en CDB bi-turbines

Think that might be prohibitive to the OP.
Agreed, that's a bit steep!
