Candidate testimonials

If you are ever thinking about relocating, Hourglass is the top tier organisation of choice. 

My agent Claire ensured all I needed was at my fingertips, and my transition from Jamaica was smooth and effortless. All the necessary documents, interviews and places to be were suggested with hassle-free instructions. Thanks to Hourglass for making my transition to the UK a success and smooth one.


Hear from our teachers

Hourglass is a first class recruitment agency which provided me with the requisite information at all stages of the recruitment process. The team worked efficiently to ensure that relocating from Jamaica  was simple and straightforward. James and Claire are experts in their roles and will always go the extra mile to ensure that their clients are truly satisfied.

I am truly grateful for the support that I have received from James and Ed over this past month. James was the first one to take my case, I appreciate him for believing in my potential and treating me with kindness and respect this whole time. I can’t believe that Ed found a suitable role for me in such short time and helped me find a place at a great school in UK. Their actions and advice were always in my best interest.

They were extremely courteous, approachable and informative. I can’t emphasise enough the professionalism they have shown as I moved over to the UK from India.

Excellent service overall.

My specific agent ensured I was comfortable and kept informed about everything taking place. It is obviously a team effort at Hourglass. Many agents contacted me at different phases to get specific things done – whether interviews, documents verification, visa details, and even relocation guidance. It was just an amazing experience to work with the Hourglass team, and I have already begun recommending this service to people back in Jamaica who are desirous of finding good jobs overseas without hassle.

My experience at Hourglass has been a favourable one. 

The staff (mostly Claire and occasionally Steph) are reliable and honest from the initial introductory stage of the financial obligations, to the job offer, the initial move from Jamaica, to the settling in phase. Any questions that I had regarding my move was answered in a timely manner. No matter how simple or complex the query, Hourglass did their best assist.

Great service – attentive, informed, honest and efficient. Lots of supportive and nurturing advice which differentiates from other companies and makes a huge difference to the recruitment process. Thank you very much Ed!

Hourglass is the best teaching agency I’ve worked with. They’ve kept me in work, in schools I want to work in, and taken the hassle out of the application rigmarole. The team have taken the time to understand what I’m looking for in a role and are incredibly diligent at finding relevant opportunities. I’m certain they wouldn’t send me to a school unless they really thought I’d get on well there. 

Ed deserves a special mention for his frequent check-ins. He calls when he says he will, and is always knowledgeable and professional in his manner, but not without a sense of humour. It’s really reassuring to know that someone is looking out for me, and Ed’s advice always feels like he’s considering my best interests. I’d recommend hourglass to any teachers looking for work.
