I am very familiar with the process as I also moved here from the UK and
have assisted many referrals through their transition.
You can either rent a furnished accommodation where the owners usually do not require a credit check but usually require references and work status information as well as the usual security deposit. For unfurnished owners usually require 80x the rent or guarantors along with a letter of employment from your employer. Although your credit from the UK does not really count here it helps to show a potential landlord your credit history back home.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask me.

Another option for foreigners is to use Insurent, which is a company that acts as guarantor, and which works with designated landlords. There is a fee attached, which usually amounts to the equivalent of one month's rent. They work with qualified foreigners who have to substantiate their application with documentation.
