Blowing our own trumpet!

It’s been a busy few months at Hourglass Education, and our Recruitment Consultants have been working hard.  Here’s a selection of the feedback Allison Travis (nee Tempest) has been given.

I was unaware as to how efficient and supportive an agency could be. A friend recommended that I should sign up with Hourglass Education and I worked closely with Allison.

I first spoke to Allison on a Monday and she had secured me an interview the following day. This led to the acceptance of my new position by the Thursday!

I could not have asked for a more professional yet welcoming introduction into teaching and could not recommend Hourglass Education enough!

The Hourglass team have been remarkable in assisting me. They have excellent customer service and are very speedy in their response.

I am grateful to them, as they have been helpful in keeping me calm when I have felt overwhelmed or nervous about my big relocation. I recommend them to everyone.


I was with another agency, nearing the end of a placement and struggling to find a new position.

I applied to Hourglass Education one weekend. They contacted me on Monday and, by Tuesday, had set up an interview at a great school for the following week!

They were even able to negotiate overnight accommodation (paid for by the school) as it was pretty far away. I ended up getting the position as a secondary English teacher.

The Hourglass team is excellent at keeping in touch – great for peace of mind – and is extremely helpful. I can’t recommend them enough!
