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. We have a truly unique insight into the challenges surrounding successful leadership – and selecting the candidates who are best placed to lead an organisation from the front.

Case study 1 – Hourglass as an extension of the SLT

In 2017, Hourglass began its relationship with a large, rural all-through academy in Buckinghamshire.  In special measures, the academy struggled to recruit, and suffered from a poor reputation in the surrounding area.  

Hourglass consultants worked as an extension of the SLT to rebuild essential expertise, ultimately providing more than 18 core subject specialists.

Case study 2 – Hourglass’ impact across a large multi-academy trust

Hourglass has been working with a complex multi-academy trust in the south east for more than eight years.

We have supported significant growth and continued success, and have made strategic appointments in a third of the trust’s academies.
