How we got here
HorizonOne was founded in 2008 and success has been achieved through an unyielding commitment to our core values.
We view sourcing talent as a science, not a sales game. We avoid a transactional ’numbers game’ approach to recruitment and use evidence to take the guess work out of decision making.
By concentrating the company’s attention on consulting and not selling, and deeper level engagement with clients, candidates and the wider community, HorizonOne is positioned as a true professional services business. We are known in our markets for our authenticity, upfront communication and impartial advice when assisting clients and candidates to navigate their way through the pitfalls of recruitment decision-making. We are delivering on our founding mission to set the benchmark for recruitment consulting services.
