Overseas teachers

The perfect choice for overseas teachers

We know that wherever you are in the world, international relocation can be daunting.

Our specialist overseas recruitment team provides dedicated support throughout the recruitment and relocation process. With over 20 years’ international experience, we’re well placed to support the needs and expectations of our candidates.

We’ve used our extensive experience to streamline the overseas recruitment process. As a result, our dedicated and knowledgeable consultants make the journey from application to induction – and beyond – straightforward and rewarding.


Our overseas team is led by Claire Murphy, candidate recruitment specialist. She will be your first point of contact and will be on hand to lead you through the recruitment process. Together with Hourglass consultants, Claire will arrange interviews, in-country or remotely, share insider information about schools and neighbourhoods and make sure you have the information you need.

As you progress, we will make sure you are legally compliant and ready to work in the UK. We will also guide you through the initial stages of relocation. Specifically, we can help with the plans you need to make, immigration issues, flights, accommodation, and more.

Our support doesn’t stop at the school gate. We’ll help to identify a suitable mentor for you. This will mean you’ll be able to communicate with your school before you arrive in the UK and be up and running from day one. And of course, Hourglass will be here to follow your progress, and available to help at any time.
