Working for Us

At Horizons we aim to be an organisation recognised for our expertise, innovation and leadership in making our region a great place to live, work and play. We truly believe that we cannot achieve this vision unless we have a great team.

Of course, our organisational personality is important to us also. We provide an environment that supports personal growth, learning and development, great leadership, and internal progression. We also foster employee wellbeing, celebrate our successes and encourage lifestyles which underpin our vision of being a great place to live, work and play.

Horizons are an equal opportunity employer and are committed to ensuring we have a diverse and inclusive workplace so our people reflect the diversity of our region.
