Moving back to teach in SE England - where are the most jobs?

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by lexyboo, Jun 14, 2011.

  1. After having had to move away from the SE (Berkshire) a few years ago due to partners job, we are now moving back next Summer. His job is in Central London and we are looking to live in either London itself or the home counties & he will commute. Am UPS and looking to move into SLT - where are the good boroughs to work in?

    You have asked two questions here which will probably give different answers!
    Q1 where are the most jobs?
    Q2 where are the good boroughs to work in?
    The most jobs are in boroughs which find it difficult to recruit and retain staff . . .
    You could start by considering what would be, for you, a good working environment. High-achieving state schools, for example, would be found in Richmond or Kingston - both on a fast railway line to London. If you have a different criterion, such as CPD for staff, then do some research to see which boroughs would offer you that. Local Authority websites give lots of info about their schools.
    Best wishes.
