We’re able to generate the widest possible pool of talent in response to your vacancy simply because we don’t recognise international boundaries. We routinely conduct global searches for all of our senior appointments, and track interesting candidates around the world. We have all of the experience, and use all of the tools, required to achieve a successful international search.
Implications for international search
International searches require insight into how overseas candidates may view an opportunity within British higher education. The outstanding reputation of UK universities needs to be balanced with personal concerns, which is why we bring our considerable recruitment experience to bear in issues such as:
- Comparing international and British job titles and responsibilities
- Evidencing UK remuneration structures and facilitating salary negotiations
- Positioning UK remuneration alongside the cost of living
- Presenting your region as an attractive destination of choice
- Advising on implications such as relocation.
“Dixon Walter’s clear focus on quality and ability to engender interest, both nationally and internationally, has been crucial in securing keynote appointments.”
— Professor Gill Valentine, Pro-Vice-Chancellor Social Sciences, University of Sheffield
Locating great candidates
Our fully managed search & selection service includes a free recruitment campaign microsite, which is a dedicated page advertising your university’s vacancy. It offers detailed information, links and downloads, and is visible worldwide. This means your vacancy will come up in relevant internet searches initiated anywhere in the world.
We will interview candidates anywhere in the world using Skype or phone, and are flexible with regard to time zones. Again, as part of this we will help to position your vacancy, university, region and remuneration to international candidates.
