Having to leave my job - will I struggle to get another?

    Hello everyone,

    I'm currently in the middle of my NQT year as a Secondary English teacher. I have been quite successful this year so far, all my observations have been either outstanding or good with outstanding features and I am feeling positive about completing the year with no concerns. I really enjoy my job, get on well with the department, have my classes under control, and I am generally enjoying teaching.

    Unfortunately due to my husbands job (Army) we have been ordered to re-post this summer when he comes back from his tour of duty. Meaning that I will have to leave my job at the end of this year; I am now back on the search for a job!

    I know I will get a good reference, but I have heard all sorts of stories about it looking bad if you leave your school after NQT - is this true? Is the job market even worse than it was this time last year? Do you think I will struggle? Will schools be less keen to hire me now I am a year more expensive?

    Apologies for the vague questions, but many thanks for any replies,
