Overseas Candidates

From day one, Hourglass has focused on schools and teachers. Our role is to provide teachers with exactly what they need to relocate and thrive in the most exciting teaching opportunities in the UK.

Australian Teachers

At Hourglass, we’re used to dealing with complex visa requirements. As a result of our long connection with international teachers, we’ve lost count of just how many education professionals and schools we’ve helped through this process.

Canadian Teachers

It’s a great theory: broaden your horizons and kick-start your teaching career in a new country. We ask one Canadian teacher what it’s like in practice.

Jamaican Teachers

We first met Karl in Kingston, Jamaica, when we were holding a recruitment drive for a multi-academy trust. Karl relocated to Surrey and took up his post as a teacher of mathematics in a large secondary school.

New Zealand Teachers

It’s never been easier for New Zealand-trained teachers to come and work in the UK. For years, the Youth Mobility Visa has allowed NZ passport holders the opportunity to spend time in the UK.

South African Teachers

Septimus felt that circumstances were limiting his personal growth – and that his professional objectives would be better met overseas. As a qualified teacher with responsibility in South Africa, his Hourglass consultant knew he’d be a hit in English schools.
