About Dixon Walter

Dixon Walter is a Search and Selection Firm devoted to the appointment of outstanding leaders within Higher Education. We deliver successful appointments across the full spectrum of senior Professional Services and Academic Leadership positions throughout the UK and across all mission groups.

Our approach is supportive and insight-driven leading to innovative, diverse, and inspirational appointments, which exceed the expectations of our clients whilst providing an exceptional level of candidate care. This is borne out in the feedback we receive from our clients and candidates and accounts for the high volume of repeat business we are awarded.

Our commitment to ensuring diversity, equality and inclusion is embedded throughout our processes. We understand that inclusive practice is critical to the success of any recruitment campaign, and we work proactively with clients to understand their approach and challenges in relation to diversity and positive action steps required. Our efforts have led to a fantastic track record of over 70% of appointees in 2023 from under-represented groups.

Our dedicated team of Higher Education experts combine a broad range of significant senior recruitment experience along with direct, lived experience at the senior level within the HE sectors from multiple institutions. Our team offers a committed approach and are acutely aware of the societal impacts of the organisations we partner, and the responsibility of those leaders who operate within them.
