Dixie Recruitment has a unique model. Our team is made up of Specialist Consultants, each of whom has had a successful career in the discipline that they recruit in. “I believe a specialist approach is the key to sourcing critical, scarce and high-demand skills.” Each specialist is intentional in developing a passive talent network that career portals are unable to access, always adhering to ethical and best practice world-class recruitment.
