I AM FULLY QUALIFIED IN THE UK BUT DO NOT KNOW IF THIS IS WORTH ANYTHING IN USA ? CAN ANY ONE OFFER ANY ADVICE ON THIS SUBJECT ? MANY THANKS FOR YOUR TIME....

Most electrical work in the state of Florida requires that the electrician has a valid state issued license. For more information see:

employer's license. (Right Jack?)
Unfortunately you will find that UK and US electrical has very little in common; so I don't know if an employer will even consider your experience to be worth much.

That gets really "iffy". It depends on the job location, who's doing the work, what's being done and who the work is done for. For examples electrical work performed for major telephone companies nation wide do not require a licensed electrician because of the strict requirements imposed by the telcos. On the other hand, in the city of Niagara Falls, NY, if you want to touch an electrical wire you had not only be licensed but belong to the union as well or there's a good chance the job will be shut down.

First off - don't use capitals.
Second, have a rethink about your proposed move.
