I have been given opportunities here to explore different skills, to find out what I enjoy doing and what I am good at! It’s a very supportive place to work and I like that I have the chance to move, grow and innovate rather than being restricted by a job title or job description.

Fiona Grimmer Marketing Manager

I am a real people person so I love the fact that my role allows me to meet and work with people in so many different roles and with so many different backgrounds. The long term relationships I am able to build with my candidates is really rewarding. Being able to guide them through different stages of their career and to see them coming back to us again and again shows they see real value in our service, and that means a lot.

David Jukes Senior Consultant

My move into the recruitment industry has been really positive. I love how fast paced and dynamic my days are. Plus the goals and measures of success are really tangible, it’s makes the work I do very rewarding.

Briana Croft Consultant

Imagine if the Directors of your company actually ran a recruitment desk? How much better would the system work? Here the systems work for us rather than us having to work for the system. It’s very refreshing to be part of a company that is constantly evolving its processes and systems rather than using the line “it’s always been done that way”

Wally Arndt General Manager Recruitment Operations

There are a number of things that I noticed were a differentiator about HorizonOne recruitment from the moment I walked in. Coming up to my one year anniversary, it’s safe to say that I feel at home here, both professionally and personally which is something I haven’t felt for some time.
