Family move to Gibraltar

Myself, my husband and 3 children aged 16, 13 and 8 are thinking of moving to Gibraltar. My husband is a graphic designer and is hoping to find a job quite easily, I am a community worker so am not so sure how lucky I will be in finding work? We really fancy a change from the rat race we currently live in and am drawn Gibraltar. Any advice on how best to go about this would be much appreciated. Information on schools, accommodation, employment and general standard of living please.

As Gibraltar is an expensive place to buy and/or rent accommodation, you are strongly advised to secure employment first.

There are many forums online which discuss the virtues and pitfalls of moving to Gibraltar.

As at least two of your children are still in school, you will need to be resident in Gibraltar for them to be allowed to enroll. I have two children in a local school and we are all very happy with it.

Rents are high. Expect to pay over £1200 a month for a 3 bedroom apartment. Property is also expensive to purchase, although there are some good tax breaks for first time buyers in Gibrlatar, and after 3 years residency you are able to purchase housing.

I certainly wouldn't move here without having first found a job. This also would come with the added benefit of potential relocation assistance from the future employer.
