About Us

What We Do


Horizon Search & Selection Ltd are a small, independent recruitment agency based in a little village outside of Bury St Edmunds, close to the Norfolk/Suffolk border.

We were founded to prove that it is possible to deliver a good recruitment service, but with heart, ethics and honesty at its centre. We believe that recruitment shouldn’t be complicated, or automated. We focus on building and maintaining good partnerships with those we work with, as for us it’s all about having that human approach.

We’ve been doing our thing since 2011 now and love helping fantastic people into great jobs and lovely companies find brilliant employees. Our generalist nature makes us a dab hand at recruiting for a broad variety of roles, both within East Anglia and the rest of the UK too.

Gemma and Kate are friendly recruitment experts with pride and a passion for bettering the standards of the recruitment industry and making the recruitment experience a positive one for all involved. Whether you’re a Candidate or a Client, Horizon set out to make the recruitment process less daunting and as straight-forward as can be. We offer friendly and knowledgeable support during the recruitment process and quite simply love what we do, which we hope is evident if you work with us!

That’s why we’re proud to deliver refreshingly different recruitment services that set us apart from the rest.


Joining the Industry in 2001, Gemma’s genuine passion for recruitment provides the foundations which Horizon is built upon. Technical, Manufacturing and Engineering roles are Gemma’s favourites. During rare downtime Gemma loves murder mysteries, gardening and music. Also making wine, jams and chutneys with Husband Andrew and walks with her dog Emily.

Joined the team in 2011 as a Resourcer and now co-runs Horizon alongside Gemma. Kate loves recruiting for design, sales, marketing and customer service positions and outside of work can be found doing up her house bit by bit, enjoying comedy, music and good food and drink as well as spending time with Husband-to-be Tom and rescue dog Joy.

Everything about what we do, means everything to me. I wanted to build a company that works for everyone who works here. Recruitment is tough and it is a hard nut to crack, but once you’ve got it then it can be so rewarding. I feel very strongly that we really do offer a genuine alternative to what’s expected from a recruitment service. Along the way, we are building such a wonderful client base and I am so excited to see where the future will take us!

Director at Horizon Search and Selection

I feel really strongly about doing what we do in our own unique style and feel so fortunate to be a part of Horizon. We go against the grain of corporate recruitment, and inject honesty, personality and passion into what we do but also take our work very seriously too. We love being generalist; it means we get to work with some wonderfully diverse clients and candidates which makes it great fun but also a never ending journey of discovery and learning!
