Korean Horizons provides government public schools for the peak seasons of March & September and also we provide government public schools for the off season periods as well. We have public school positions throughout the entire year.
We work with more education offices than any other recruitment company, and we therefore have more public schools jobs than any other recruitment company out there today.
We a recruitment company which officially works with EPIK. We also officially work with the Busan Office of Education, the Incheon Office of Education, the Chungnam Office of Education and the Gyungnam Office of Education.
Also - the Gyeonggi (GEPIK) program has decided to ask for teachers from EPIK; so if you want to be near Seoul and in a Public School - Apply with Korean Horizons! We can make it happen for you!
We are owned & operated by UK nationals. We are a registered company in South Korea.
We can communicate with you easily & understand your needs - whether this is your first time or if you are currently here inside South Korea.
With a Korean company, your preferences will be lost in translation. Never will you be misunderstood by us.
In addition, by using the service of Korean Horizons – When you arrive in Korea, we will meet you and provide you with (which we will pay for by the way!) accomodation for the evening + breakfast (which we will again pay for) & ensure that you arrive safely at your school the next day (we pay your transport costs as well!) And - we will be available throughout your entire contract.
What other recruitment company can say that? We can't think of one either.
We also provide an interest-free supermarket service – buy anything you like at cost and you can pay us back once you get paid. This service can be especially useful if you want to have bedsheets delivered to your apartment for when you arrive; or even food after you arrive. It's available 365 days of the year - for your whole year here. Definately a perk of being a Korean Horizons teacher!
This service has become so popular & here are some of the things teachers have already purchased at cost recently; with absolutely no profit to us.
| || || || || || || || || || |
+ all sorts of other things!
We can find these on the Korean internet shops cheaper than what you can buy it for locally in your country and from what you can buy locally inside any shop in Korea. What's more, you can literally find anything, it's convenient to you, you don't have to worry about the language barrier & you don't have to worry about paying us back until you get paid.
And in addition to these benefits we provide, you will also receive a Book on Learning Korean, a Lonely Planet Korean Phrasebook, a Travel Guide, a Teaching book, a Travel Card and a Universal Plug Adaptor (and some maps too of the region you will teach in!) BTW - There's no point getting a free phone - the cost per minute will be so high you'll regret using it each time - and who you gonna call? Better to wait, make some friends until you receive your ARC card and use skype in the mean-time to call home!
Does your recruitment company offer any of these services at cost without any profit / or free of charge? No? If you're not sure - why not ask them?
So what's the catch? The answer - there isn't one. It all makes business sense to us. And we are paid by the education office for our recruitment services.
See our creditability by googling our name.
Korean Horizons is here to ensure that you will receive the best possible service out there today.
