I've decided that I've finally had enough of the UK and would like to move to VA, USA where I have friends. Obviously I'm going to need to find a job, but before I go looking on job sites I'd quite like to find out whether the company that I'm currently employed by has any vacancies in their VA or DC offices.
Unfortunately there is no global intranet site that I can simply look for vacancies on, and I'm hoping that maybe my 10 years of excellent service in the UK office may open some doors that wouldn't otherwise be posted on the intranet anyway.
I don't know anyone personally in any of the US offices, so any emails that I send to the department managers over there could quite possibly find their way back to my manager here in the UK. Whether or not this would cause friction, I'm not sure.
What would be the best way to approach the situation?
