Hourglass consultants have been playing a leading role in education recruitment for decades, and regularly partner with schools, multi-academy trusts and local authorities to help them recruit and retain the very best teachers – at all levels.
By working closely with education leaders, and offering expert advice and guidance, we regularly help to weigh up the pros and cons of key career development and strategic hiring decisions.
We have supported hundreds of schools, multi-academy trusts and local authorities, and every placement we’ve ever made shapes our approach to senior leadership roles.
Hourglass is proud to utilise its combined experience of over 30 years in education to provide high calibre senior leaders, predominately in London and the home counties
As specialist education recruiters, our consultants are immersed in the lives of their candidates, and the ethos of their client schools. Key members of the team have a background in classroom management and school leadership.
Hourglass consultants use our tried and tested search methodology. We approach each search assignment by taking the time to work on our client’s specific requirements, timeframes and strategic objectives.
Leadership roles are exciting and challenging, and finding the best candidates for those roles requires a thorough appreciation of the challenges involved. Hourglass has unique market insight, and a comprehensive view of available talent. We’ll search out and select the most suitable candidates and once the heavy lifting is done, your focus can be to choose the best fit.
As a senior-level candidate, balancing the demands of a challenging role, with managing your own career development can be difficult. We’re here to provide an objective assessment of your skills and experience, and work with you to identify a rewarding and successful career pathway – and, of course, to present the opportunities you need to make that happen.
Hourglass is proud to take a candidate-led approach. Our consultants like nothing more than working out how people tick. We’ll work hard to understand what you’re looking and your thoughts on work/life balance, culture, values and management style.
We listen closely to our candidates and share our passion for education, and our commitment to providing the best possible service to support you and your career development. We’ll work hard to match you with the best opportunity for you to develop your career path.
We’re genuinely excited by our work with senior leaders. These roles are stimulating, challenging and impactful. If you’re ready to move into your next leadership role, the Hourglass team is here to provide an efficient and seamless experience tailored to your own requirements.
Our knowledge and ambition is what drives us forward. As sector specialists, we’re determined to share our expertise with both our clients and candidates.
We will always act in the best interest of our clients, candidates and each other. We stand by our commitments, we keep our promises and treat everyone with respect.
We believe that our words, actions and convictions are at the heart of our approach, but carrying them out with integrity is everything.

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.
