I am not from America but I can put you right on the work permit / visa requirements.
Unless you hold an EU passport or one from Norway or Iceland then you will need a work permit and a residence permit to work in Europe. That is the basic rules. However, some countries, like the UK, have what the call a 'working holiday'arrangement where you can live and work in the country for a limited period based on a much simpler form of application.
Again, not being from the UK either, I cannot say exactly how to apply but start with getting in touch with the Home Office. That, I believe, is the competent authority in the field.
