Website to apply for UK international relocation payment

Those more favoured by the IRP are physics and language teachers, and applications are open on the UK government's international relocation payment application website.

While reposting the UK relocation opportunity on Twitter, a Nigerian man, Wizarab, said teaching is one of the most challenging jobs in the UK.

His words:

"UK is offering £10k relocation fee for anyone that wants to migrate to the UK to teach. Note that teaching kids is one of the hardest jobs in the UK. There is no respect and you have no power of the kids. Just a friendly advice before you rush it."
