Ahh, but if you are a non-EEA national, and you have a work
permit for Company A, you are not allowed to work for Company B
until Company B applies for a work permit for you. And, in
theory, Company B will not be granted a work permit for you
unless they can show that they tried really hard to find an
EEA-national who was suitable for the job, and failed miserably.
There are certain exceptions for things like skills for which
there are shortages, but in general companies have to try to
hire an EEA national first.
