Grainne Hallahan on how to find the perfect job

Welcome to the second edition of the Tes Career Clinic series.

In these videos, I’m going to help you on your journey to finding the perfect teaching job.

Here I take a look at the process of job hunting.

Once you’ve decided where you want your career to take you, it’s time to start looking for a school, a position and a location that’s right for you.

Finding the right job (UK teachers)

Finding the right school can make a huge difference to your job satisfaction.

I spoke to Amy Forester, director of pastoral care at Cockermouth School in Cumbria, UK, to get her advice on how to find the job of your dreams.

Planning your career (international teachers)

If you’re looking to teach overseas, you have a lot more to consider. The country, curriculum and climate could all play a part in your decision-making process.

I asked Felicity Percival, deputy head of department at St Christopher’s School in Bahrain, for her advice on how to find the international job of your dreams.
