I live in ireland with a pitbull and I have been offered a huge promotion at work to move to London, but understand that if I do my dog will not be allowed to join me, can you confirm if there is anyway to have her allowed in the UK?

A dog with pitbull terrier characteristics is banned in the UK under the Dangerous Dogs Act and you will not succeed in being allowed to keep her in the UK. See here for the specific rules. It may be that you can argue them but in general terms a pitbull won't be allowed into the Uk.
