He can't be worse than an english plumber who was 'working' near us. He conned several people, 2 we knew personally, into giving him money in advance for materials for their job. Then never finished the jobs. He disappeared for a while, his poor wife moved in with our neighbour.
Eventually the french law caught up with him, but by then he had found a wealthy french concubine who paid off his debts.

Catch 22. Without French recognised qualifications, knowledge of the local systems or being fluent in a French it would be almost impossible to get a job. It doesn’t seem a good basis to move your young family half way around the world to the more expensive part of a foreign country. It’s also looking very likely that if you want to use your British citizenship as a way in you will need to have moved, become established in the system and found employment before 31st October 2019. Good luck with that one.
It isn't a requirement to speak the language (it helps though) you will get a start with a company because you work with your hands not your mouth! Through pole emploi you can do an assesment with a company to see what you know and what you need to know.The idea to work for someone first is the best solution.
