How to make your overseas experience work at home

Q: “I have been working as a primary school teacher in London for six years. I’ve worked in some challenging schools, to say the least – in almost every class, I had children from backgrounds where drug and alcohol misuse was rampant. Behaviour was a constant issue in those schools. I have got on quite well. I’ve also done some courses on school leadership. Now I want to move back to my home place in rural Ireland. I’m afraid that what I have done in London won’t really be relevant to rural or small town schools in Ireland, and that I should tone down my CV. Any advice?” (CT, email).

People of the Tribes: Meet Patrick.

The ideal place to settle was Galway (my wife is also from Athenry). As I owned restaurants I knew I wanted to be involved with food, so I came across a fire engine in Portlaoise and I said ''Why don't I use this as a catering food truck?''

Playing the waiting game

Q: I went for an interview with a company four weeks ago and they said they would get back to me by the end of the following week. I haven’t heard a dicky bird since.
