About Us

What We Do


Hello! We’re Gemma & Kate and we are Horizon Search & Selection Ltd. It’s just the two of us, working away at our office in Bury St Edmunds, not too far from the Norfolk/Suffolk border. Established in 2011, collectively we have over 25 years’ experience in recruitment.

We are a totally generalist, independent recruitment agency that believe in keeping it simple, offering great service with integrity and just being nice folks to work with!

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. The types of roles we recruit for are so wide-ranging, it’d be too much to list here but check out our vacancies page to get an idea of our recruiting capabilities! Over on our testimonials page you’ll find reviews on our services from our clients and candidates too, so be sure to have a read of their opinions on working with us.

As Horizon is our business, we’ve been able to be bold with our approach to how we run our recruitment agency. We don’t have commission or KPI targets. It’s not the norm for our industry, but we’re OK with that because we’re not exactly the norm either!

We work hard for our clients because we really, honestly just LOVE what we do. That feeling of making people happy by finding them great staff, or by helping them into a new job…that means everything to us.

We both have great 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, again…we 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.

Kate joined us 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 Tom and rescue dog Joy.

Everything about what we do means everything to me. Working in this industry can have its ups and downs and you need to be resilient to this. Once you find your mojo 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. We go the extra mile and do everything we can to ensure our candidates and our clients receive the best possible service from us. Along the way, we are building such a wonderful client base and I am so excited to see where the future will take us. We are truly blessed!

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!
