Emma Dyer

Founder/Director Equine Careers

Emma started her recruitment career conducting recruitment and selection for J Sainsburys, and developed Equine Careers in 2009.

Emma found the careers advice she was offered when deciding to leave school to be somewhat lacking when you mentioned horses, so when the opportunity arose to develop a unique jobs board and recruitment business within the Industry she was passionate about – It was an opportunity not to be missed.

A debut at BETA International in 2010 saw Emma win an Innovation Award – the perfect start to launching a new business. Emma’s career has developed from more than just running a jobs board and recruitment to Careers Advice and Mentoring.

Emma has been the Industry Advisor for Warwickshire College, and a Mentor at Writtle University College. She regularly visits Colleges and Universities as a Guest speaker to talk about the variety of jobs available within the industry, conduct mock interviews, and offer CV preparation sessions. Emma has also spoken at the BETA Conference and also on stage at Your Horse Live about various aspects of recruitment.

On a day-to-day basis, Emma’s clients include many of the governing bodies, including placing the new CEO for HorseScotland. Emma has placed candidates with Dengie, Weatherbeeta, The Pony Club, The British Horse Society, TopSpec, Gain Horse Feeds, The Pure Feed Company, Baileys Horse Feeds and the newly launched Evoke brand.

Over the last 15 years, Emma has dealt with over 3000 vacancies.

When Emma isn’t busy recruiting, she enjoys her 2 horses, and together they enjoy many disciplines – including team chasing and a day out with the Cranwell Bloodhounds.

Equine Careers specialises in professional roles for professional people. Their clients are seeking dedicated candidates with an interest/understanding of horses, the industry and the products used.

www.equine-careers.co.uk is the UK’s #1 Jobs board, specialising in office and professional vacancies within the equine industry.
