Sinead Leavey

Irish Relocation Consultant

"Hi everyone, I'm Sinead and I am the Relocation Consultant for Ireland! I have been working with Irish teachers for the last year, helping them secure full time teaching positions, finding accommodation and settling into London life. I work with a number of schools who are eager to have Irish Teachers working with them; these schools are happy to help Irish Teachers complete their DIP year, so if you do decide to return to Ireland you will have completed your qualification. If you would like to talk more about the opportunities teaching in London can offer you then please email me at or call 020 7105 3499."

London is an ideal location for Irish teachers as it has multiple teaching jobs across Early Years, Primary, Secondary and SEN and has the added extra of only being an hours' flight away from home! 

Teaching in London looks excellent on your CV and allows you to complete the teaching council requirements in order to become fully qualified. The Career Teachers team will go above and beyond to help secure you a teaching position suitable to your needs whilst also supporting you before, during and after your relocation.

Career Teachers also offers The London Experience for Irish Teachers who want to come over to London for a week and secure a full time teaching position after interviewing and teaching lessons in schools. You will also get the chance to explore London and meet other teachers also considering living and teaching in London. 

If you would like more information on living in London then check out our London borough guide or blog to find out more about specific areas.
