What people are saying…

Here is what some of our recent happy candidates had to say about us.


“I had the pleasure of working with Alan Walter during the recruitment process for a senior University leadership position. I received a platinum service throughout which was person centred, highly professional, diligent and supportive. Although I guess that much the same could be said for many senior recruitment professionals, Alan stands out. I felt that he was there at every stage of the process, offering constructive feedback and advice in a direct but supportive way; nothing was too much trouble. I had never met Alan before this recent process, but I would happily nominate him for an award for best Recruitment Consultant!”

“As a recent candidate for a senior position in a UK HEI, I have no hesitation in recommending Mike Dixon from Dixon Walter. Having been approached for previous positions by other agencies before, they in no way compared to the very sensitive, professional, personal and supportive nature by which Mike dealt with me at every stage of the process. At both the formal and informal stages Mike’s communication was timely, clear and wholly focussed on ensuring the best possible outcome for myself and the institution. At no point did I feel that I was just another candidate and I am sure that due to Mike’s diligence and effective communication both the institution & I were immediately aligned in terms of expectations and aspirations. If you are seeking to recruit exceptional individuals into your organisation or you are an individual seeking exceptional opportunities in the Higher Education sector I can only suggest you start a conversation with Dixon Walter to see for yourself how they can contribute to your own success.”
