We are proud to assert that education underpins everything we do within our company; our directors’ education background helps us to match our teachers to prospective teaching posts with great care and consideration, ensuring that their professional and personal skills and strengths address the needs of the school, taking in to consideration their experience, qualifications and any stated preferences. We ensure that we acquire an enhanced understanding of the needs of the school; its education philosophy, pupil profile and teaching and learning environment, prior to selecting and matching appropriate teachers for any vacant posts.

At Hourglass Education we demonstrate a professional approach throughout and beyond the recruitment process and genuinely care about and support the teachers and schools we serve. Each teaching candidate we register is assigned to a dedicated consultant who interviews the teacher and processes their application. As well as promoting this teacher to schools with vacancies, this consultant will also ensure that other consultants are aware of the teacher’s professional profile, enabling all consultants to work proactively on the teacher’s behalf.

Hourglass Education consultants regularly interview teachers throughout the UK, Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, who are seeking long term and permanent teaching positions throughout England, so schools can be sure that we have a large number of appropriately qualified and experienced teachers to fill all vacancies.
