Our primary role is to find top talent

Dixie Recruitment specialises in permanent recruitment and executive search assignments.

Although Durban-based, we have worked for companies in Africa, the IO Islands, UAE, UK, Australia, USA, the UK and the EU.

Wherever the assignment takes us, we use the same ‘search’ methodology.

Why work with us

Traditional recruitment has changed. With the demand for top talent, all assignments, no matter the level, require our expert ‘search’ skills. We search the passive market delivering a shortlist of talent that traditional recruitment processes and job boards don’t have access to.

The success of our search relies heavily on our full understanding of the client’s brief.
