What about having a local tyre company remove and refit the tyre, there may be a "beading" issue ( not quite sealed ).

As said above, the beading might not be sealed properly. Take it to a different tyre bay and have them re-fit the tyre and see weither that makes any difference. A decent garage would see the state of the inside of the rim and give it a clean with a wire brush, to make sure the tyre has a snug fit, to prevent any breaks within the seal. It could be a hair-line crack within your rim that the air is escaping out.
Hope it gets sorted mate.

p.s. as a last attempt to sort the problem out, you could always use, tyre weld, just spray it in the air valve.

don't forget the valve itself could be to blame or the seal around it..
