Welcome to TESOL Planet!
After many years of foreign teachers coming to China, there have been many unfortunate situations between teachers and schools. There are two reasons why this has, and continues to happen: a) A misunderstanding of cultures, and b) A miscommunication of intentions. From this we realised that there is an important part of the equation missing, the bridge between Party A and Party B.
Horizon Recruitment, formed in 2008, is a Chinese-Australian company with the intention of becoming this bridge. We understand that the needs of the Chinese and Foreigners are different, but also, that they can be satisfied with a win-win approach to job placement.
Our goal is to find reputable schools in which to place quality native English speaking teachers. Our business model is designed and shaped to build long-term relationships with both schools and teachers, allowing us to deliver only the highest quality service.
Our vision is simply:
We are a company that practices contemporary business methods. We understand that the world grows smaller every day and that technology allows us to exist in every country, in every time zone, 24hrs a day, 7 days a week. It is because of this, we are absolutely confident we can realise our vision as it exists now, and as it adapts into the future.
To make it easier for everyone, we provide you with access to all our jobs online. This means that no matter where you are you can login and check the updates on your application, new job offers, update your contact info, etc.
Skype is a free tool that allows you to communicate over the web. Voice calls, instant messaging, file sending, etc all free! Horizon and an ever growing number of schools in China, use skype for interviews and communication.
It's important that you are in frequent communication with your Horizon representative. We like to get to know our candidates and build relationships.
