Your ideal teacher

We've been actively searching out the best teachers for years - and our international expertise means we can confidently look beyond the UK.

The majority of our candidates have been trained in the UK and are based here, but our global networks are second to none, and we have a reputation for successfully relocating the best overseas teachers for our clients. 

We work closely with our colleagues at Pertemps Education to provide our client schools with the people they need when and where they need them.

Pertemps Education consultants specialise in finding agile, energetic and reliable temporary teachers and support staff for schools and other education settings. Hourglass focuses on specialist recruitment: permanent teaching posts, candidates from overseas, and leadership appointments.


At Hourglass, we ensure that no stone is left unturned in our compliance process. We provide our teachers the support they need to become work-ready, and our client schools can be confident that their teachers can slot in as compliant, safe and efficient members of the team.
