I would wait till the next general election.

Would be sad for you to move, then be kicked out due to your fellow islanders voting to leave the eu.

I definitely agree. The job market is not good here and the French will tend to employ the French.I definitely wouldn't risk it with a family. As the previous posts suggest, check things out and try to get yourself into a more stable situation here before moving down for good.

I agree with JJ.  Perhaps it is better to start looking for a job in France, also start language training right away.   Secure a job first, then move over by yourself for a few months, to make sure the job is secure, and to look around for a suitable accommodation.   Familiarise yourself with the French system.  Then bring the family over.    Good luck.

Language immersion works, so I don't see that as a problem. However, the job market is bad in both countries, but certainly more vibrant and 'open' in the UK than France, so here I would certainly raise this as a key issue. Moving to France with no job but with a family is something I would not consider.
