I joined Horizon teachers during the pandemic, and they were so helpful not just in trying to find me a job but in checking up on me, seeing how I was doing and amazing support. They provided me with so much helpful advice and was very responsive with any messages or queries I had. I would definitely recommend this company onto friends as they were very informative, helpful and caring. - 5 Star review.
