It is best to let your current employer know about your plans to relocate as soon as you can. In situations like this, it is important to maintain a professional outlook and providing your employer with ample time to backfill your position is a good way of doing so. I would also recommend searching for a new position as soon as you know you're moving. However, if you're a year out or so, I would focus on networking, rather than applying for specific positions. If you're moving within the next 2 months, I'd recommend you start applying now. Best of luck!
