Teacher Support



Finding the right post can be a stressful process; it’s not easy to find a school that matches your preferences and aspirations, but also where your personal and professional strengths and skills are valued.

Whether you are an NQT seeking your first teaching post, an experienced teacher seeking a promotion, or a senior teacher looking for a senior leadership post, Hourglass Education can help.

Search for jobs now

Our professional consultants will spend time getting to understand you, your skills and your aspirations so that we can use our extensive network of schools to find you a post that is perfect for both you and the school.

The interview and appointment process is straightforward, uncomplicated and convenient; you will have one designated consultant, who will then support you throughout your teaching placement, and you will get support all the way through the interview process and even once you have begun your new job.
