L E T ‘ S   W O R K   T O G E T H E R !

Looking for a recruitment partner? Then look no further; Gemma and Kate have got you covered with our refreshingly different recruitment service. Here’s a bit more about Horizon and what we can do for you…

It is often said by our Clients and Candidates that it is our efficient, knowledgeable and friendly service that sets us apart (see our Testimonials page for more reviews on us!). It’s key for us to make the recruitment process as easy, positive and engaging as possible and really take the time to get to know our clients and candidates.

As generalist recruiters with nearly 30 years of combined industry experience, we’re skilled at tailoring our services to suit different client’s needs and expanding our knowledge to understand different industries and professions (although we’ve recruited for most things now, we think!). From Manufacturing to Retail, Design to Engineering and Logistics to Sales, and just about everything in between, our broad knowledge of different professions and industries means we are fortunate enough to work with a wonderfully eclectic client base.

At Genus Leasing we have always been skeptical of recruitment agencies but when looking to expand our business with extra staff we bit the bullet and instructed an industry specialist agency with the task of finding the right candidate. Unfortunately a lot of our skepticism was well placed as they failed to provide the service levels as well as the candidates.

We then spoke to Gemma at Horizon, who is actually one of our clients, who discussed our requirements in detail before beginning the search for the right person. Gemma kept us informed throughout and discussed options which she was not sure about to keep us involved in the process.

I am pleased to say that she found the right people quite quickly one started 2 weeks ago and he is already adding value to our business and the second begins next week, which we are all very positive about.

I can conclude that recruitment is similar to a lot of industries, some of the bad press they get is warranted if you go with the wrong agency, however if you go with the right company they really do add value and save time. Thanks Gemma and all the team at Horizon Search & Selection.

Director of Genus Leasing

I am happy to say that with the depth of understanding of our roles and the diligence in selecting suitable candidates, Horizon have been a pleasure to work with. The team take time to find out special requirements outside the job description, and the style of candidate we look for. They have consistently provided quality candidates over quantity, and cover geographical locations that other agencies find hard to match.

Luxury Retail Company, Newport

I recently used Horizon Search and Selection to assist me by providing candidates for some vacancies we had in our Production Department. The roles were quite specialised (Chemical Process Operator) and yet Kate Dyer was able to provide several candidates who fitted the criteria specified. I interviewed all 6 of Kate’s suggested candidates and employed one of these candidates upon a full time basis.

It is worth noting that I also invited 5 other Recruitment Agencies to assist with these positions and none of them came even close to delivering the level of service and suitability of candidates.

Hence for quality of service and realistic market rates, I would recommend Horizon as a Recruitment service.

Mildenhall – Manufacturing

I have worked with Horizon for the last 15 months as my preferred recruitment agency because they always deliver candidate CV’s promptly and with the exact attributes required for the role. Horizon always succeed with our placements because of the attention to detail and care they show in each role, they provide a fantastic all-round service and you always feel no question is every too much bother for them.

Kate from Horizon Search & Selection Ltd is a true recruitment professional who cares about people and goes extra miles to find the best placements for her candidates.

Being Kate’s customer is a real pleasure as she is committed to helping her clients discovering various career opportunities. Kate’s service is exceptional! She nurtures candidates through the whole selective process until the final stage. Kate is very friendly and supportive. I am pleased to provide Kate with my full recommendation.

Product Manager – Norfolk

I have worked with Horizon Search and Selection for many years now in a number of capabilities. Our working relationship first started back in 2012 when Kate contacted me regarding a current vacancy I had with my employer at the time. I met with Kate and agreed to allow her to work on the role, since that initial meeting I regularly used the agency to recruit to vacancies. Kate and Gemma are very hard working, conscientious, they meet deadlines (sometimes exceeded them), they are genuinely passionate about understanding the needs of the role to ensure they put the best suited candidates forward which effectively meant as a recruiting manager my valuable time was not being wasted!

Since changing my role to a HR consultant, I have had the pleasure to work alongside the management at Horizon again. I have supported them with a number of HR related queries and it is nice to see that they treat their employees with the same level of respect, enthusiasm and professionalism as their external clients.
