Referral Scheme

Welcome to Hourglass Education's Referral Programme


At Hourglass Education, we believe that great talent knows great talent. With our reputation as a trusted education recruitment partner, we’ve built strong relationships with both clients and candidates. Now, we invite you to join our referral programme and help us connect with outstanding educators who can make a real difference in schools across the UK.


How It Works

When you refer a qualified teacher to Hourglass Education, you’re not only helping them find their next opportunity, but you’re also eligible to receive a referral bonus of £250 for each successful placement. And the best part? There’s no limit to the number of referrals you can make, so spread the word and multiply your rewards.


Who Can You Refer?

You can recommend teachers from the UK or overseas who are seeking full-time teaching positions. Whether they’re seasoned educators or fresh faces in the field, if they’re new to Hourglass, they’re eligible for referral.


To Claim Your Referral

To claim your referral, click here and send an email with the subject line ‘Teacher Referral’. Please include your name, contact details, and the name of the teacher you have referred.

Please note: Before contacting us via email, please make sure to carefully read the terms and conditions. Please be aware that tracking every referral can be challenging for us, so it’s important that you inform us of any referrals you make.
