Finding exceptional senior leaders to fill exciting academic and professional service positions across all university mission groups.

At Dixon Walter we’ve worked hard to develop a process and an approach which works, and which mitigates the administrative burden for our clients. We are committed and passionate about the delivery of choice and the support of equality and diversity throughout all that we do.

“What stands Dixon Walter out from a number of agencies is knowing the client. This goes a long way in reassuring you that they’ve done their homework and that they take great care in relationship building” (candidate feedback, 2021)

The winners of the AUDE Awards for 2024 were announced at the association’s annual conference at Northumbria University on 17 April 2024.

Gold, silver and bronzes prizes were awarded as shown below
