Our services – you only pay for success

  1. Basic – free profile and adverts (low impact).  We’ll post adverts for you but will redirect applicants to apply directly to you. This is low impact as these adverts are generic and we don’t proactively promote them. You can post a vacancy or request a free school profile.  
  2. Explorer – you find candidates (medium impact). You search and filter candidates from our database. You can access their profiles, CVs, supporting documents and confidential references. You can also contact them directly. You can read our Explorer FAQs and view our live candidates.
  3. Global – we proactively promote and screen for you (high impact). This is our most popular service with the highest success rate because we extensively market your international teaching vacancies for you. We then search, screen and interview candidates on your behalf. You’ll receive the most suitable shortlist based on your requirements. Our fee for this premium Global service reflects the intensive work we invest into your vacancies. Trial our Global recruitment service at a discounted rate and enjoy the best that Teacher Horizons has to offer!

There are no up-front costs and you can use a combination of services if you wish. We also donate 10% of our profits to education charities in developing countries. You can read our Safeguarding policy and our full Terms and Conditions for schools.  To find out more, just email Laurence on

New service: Speed Matching

We’ve recently launched a brand new service, Speed Matching, which is our brilliant alternative to virtual recruitment fairs. We have focused on saving our partner international schools time by enabling them to interview a carousel of carefully selected and pre-screened candidates. After these initial one-hour events, participating schools can follow-up with the candidates they match with.

This saves you hours of valuable time and provides you with the opportunity to reconnect with your favourite candidates that you feel are the best suited to your school. 


Teacher Horizons has provided us with a great platform to support our recruitment process. Using them we have been able to recruit excellent teachers over the past two years. Their personal touch is very evident and one of the reasons I like to use them.
The Global service they offer, with initial screening and interviewing wrapped into their provision, means we can save time when receiving a shortlist suited to the requirements of our school. The Explorer service is an excellent value alternative as well.

– David Horan, Principal at Warwick Academy, Bermuda

“Teacher Horizons take the time to understand the school, its ethos, and the type of candidates who could be happy and successful here.All of their recommendations are worthy of serious consideration, which reflects well on the company’s own filtering and selection processes. Service has been personal, responsive, supportive, and helpful at all times.”
– Craig Jenkinson, Head of Senior School at Dulwich College Shanghai, China

“Teacher Horizons focus on quality rather than quantity – putting forward the most suitable candidates in their database for roles. They are always sure to check with candidates that they are a good fit and actually interested in our school before presenting them to us. Key strengths in hiring through Teacher Horizons to me include highly responsive communication from Laura Rigney, and the candor and reliability of the comments on candidates that are provided prior to interview.”
– Richard Nunns, Deputy Director at Dulwich International High School Suzhou, China
