Why relocate to England?

Why relocate to England?

There are hundreds of employers in the south east of England, and each one is unique. If education is your thing, our consultants will not only match your requirements to the schools they know so well but will explain why they have made their recommendations. Whether you’re a teacher or a qualified social worker, wherever you choose to work, you can be sure of a warm welcome and the opportunity to pick up some great experience along the way.

Whether you’re heading along the short term supply or locum route, or would rather secure a longer term contract, you can pick up invaluable experience and take advantage of your downtime to absolutely make the most of any time you spend in the UK.


Being quite literally on Europe’s doorstep, one of the UK’s key attractions is just how easy it is to get away! Because you can get to so many European countries in little more than a couple of hours, Dublin, Paris, Venice, Munich, Barcelona and Athens (to name a few) are all within reach.

Take your pick from low cost airlines like EasyJet, Jet2 and RyanAir and shop around to find the best bargains. Smart travellers will check out Lastminute.com,  STA Travel, FlightCentre and Expedia. 

Getting around

Once you’re in the UK, you’ll be able to weigh up the benefits of buying your own car, or using public transport.

If you’re planning to be based in London, Underground and overground services are covered by Transport for London, and you might decide that a car is less help and more hindrance. The Tube network takes you anywhere and everywhere you will need to go pretty much 24 hours a day.

It’s a different story in the countryside. In that case, it might make sense to look into buying a second-hand car to use for the duration of your stay. You can spend as little or as much as you like on a car but £2,000 will get you a reliable enough small car to get from A to B.

Check out Autotrader to see what you can afford. If you do buy a car in the UK, you will need to take road tax and insurance costs into account. There are lots of price comparison websites which will help you find the best deal.

Mobile Phone

Let’s face it, your mobile phone is definitely another essential cost!

Being a long way from home means you’ll be keeping in touch with friends and family on your phone. Think about how to make the most of Wifi calls and messages, and make sure your tariff has a good international call package. There’s a wide range of service providers and you should certainly shop around to get the best deal. Most of the big providers offer reasonable deals in the UK, but also supermarkets such as Tesco can end up being really cost effective.


If you are eating in, there is so much choice when it comes to food shopping in the UK with big chain supermarkets Aldi, Tesco, Lidl, Morrisons or Sainsbury’s for your weekly shop. Supermarket loyalty cards and collecting rewards is a great way to receive cash back and discounts on your food bill too.

Eating out is no different in the UK than anywhere across the globe. Whether you’re interested in English classics or international options, most high streets have a range of options. If you have specific dietary requirements, there are specialist meat, vegetarian and vegan menus available, and most cafes and restaurants will take allergies into account too.
