Why Join the Horizon Teachers Team?

One of our Trainees who joined us last January (and recently promoted to Senior Consultant) said this about Horizon Teachers:

"I would recommend Horizon Teachers as a career path to anyone looking to become a recruitment consultant. Since being at the horizon I have felt that progression in my career is always encouraged and is clearly set out in front of me. Everything needed to take the next step is clear and guidance is given throughout. Being able to see what needs to be achieved to progress to the next stage is very helpful and encourages you to push yourself to be better. I haven't been here for the longest time but the time I have been has been very enjoyable and rewarding. I look forward to what's to come in my career at Horizon Teachers. Thank you to all employees for helping me and welcoming me into the team."
