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.
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.
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.
Having used a few recruitment agencies before I can certainly say that Horizon and in particular Kate Dyer have been utterly brilliant. They are not pushy in the slightest and have both their clients and candidates interests at heart. A refreshing change from other agencies that I have encountered!
I have full confidence in how horizon operate and assist in selecting you and getting you prepared for that all important job. Everything they do is one big positive they really assist and give loads of encouragement to you. They speak to you on a personal level not someone who just happens to have ticked the right boxes. This is a rare thing to find these days and I am so glad that our paths crossed, they really go out of their way. They definitely get top marks from me and deservedly so. They outshine all the rest. You can rely on these people. A very well deserved thank-you to Kate and Gemma. Professionals at their best.
To Gemma and the Horizon team,
I cannot thank you enough for all your hard work and the dedication which you showed throughout the recruitment process which led to my employment. You diligently kept me informed at all times, offering encouragement and reassurance at each step.
Gemma specifically dealt with the process for me, lifting my confidence throughout, whilst providing realistic and practical advice that really worked.
Horizon offer a consummately professional service, made all the more special by a charming personal touch. The whole process was actually fun, never intimidating, and all the time I was left with a feeling that Gemma had things fully covered. I have taken great pleasure in recommending Horizon to friends and colleagues.
A great BIG THANKYOU to Gemma and Kate! You make an awesome team.
If you are looking to join recruitment agency to find work, Look no further, truly amazing professional company with really friendly staff that will always go the extra mile for you.
Thank you so much Horizon for all your support
I have just gone through the “Horizon Experience” and have to report that from the initial contact to a successful placement with a fantastic company, Kate Dyer was the most accomplished, thorough and personable HR professional I have encountered.
Kate grilled me at the outset, nicely, and ensured I possessed the necessary skillset her client required. At all times she held both the applicant and client’ interests at heart, a rare trait in HR circles. If you are fortunate to apply for a position and Kate is involved, trust me, you will have a superbly professional experience!.
Wow, what a fantastic agency. I cannot recommend enough. I applied for a job and was offered an interview the next day. Gemma went above and beyond to help me prepare for the interview. I got the job! Gemma guided me through the next steps and I cannot wait to start in a weeks’ time. I would not be where I am now if it had not been for the commitment and support Gemma and the team showed me. Thank you so much all of you and keep up the good work 🙂
