About Us

Our story

Our story began in 1999. After 8 years working for a reputable national recruitment agency, Lee Dixie decided to go on her own. It’s a success story that we are proud of and one that is built on the strength and passion of our team, always making sure we deliver on our promise – “quod dixi dixi, dei gratis grata” – “what I have said, I have said, the grace of God.” Hence our promise to you, “what we say we do!” Quality and integrity are key- there is no compromise!

Dixie Recruitment has always been known for its strength in Executive Search and Management Placements. In 2020 during COVID, a time of absolute uncertainty, we started Career Talk, a career guidance platform for graduates. It really was about adding value to our graduate community, and we had the time. Business Support Placements was also a COVID baby, a division that recruits administrative support for the various business verticals. Like many businesses, COVID was a ‘fast forward’ button into the remote and global recruitment space. Although we feel well-positioned to grow our global presence, we are taking it slowly. With Lee’s passion for graduates, Global Graduates, placing graduates of distinction will be launched in 2024.
