What you need to know about moving to Guernsey

Share this page

Not all posts in States-maintained schools and the College of Further Education, part of The Guernsey Institute, can be covered by locally resident teachers and lecturers. Where we cannot appoint a suitable local candidate, we recruit from outside of the Island - generally from the United Kingdom, but also from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Europe.

We advertise Primary and Secondary vacancies both locally and in the Times Educational Supplement, on Facebook and on our online recruitment site.  Teachers who do not hold Guernsey Residential Status are normally appointed on five-year contracts, because of local Housing restrictions on residency in the Island.

Senior Appointments in Primary, Secondary and Special schools (Headteachers and Deputy Headteachers) and Heads of Department in Secondary schools are usually appointed on a permanent contract basis.

We offer a generous removal and relocation package, including a rent subsidy, to teachers moving from the UK.  A copy of the latest Relocation Directive can be downloaded from this page.

Interviews are generally held in Guernsey and candidates are expected to travel to Guernsey for their interview. We will reimburses candidates with their interview expenses from the UK.
