Recruitment and Executive Search in the Automotive Industry


"If and when we decide to return to the UK, Steele Dixon will be my first point of contact and choice for career and recruitment opportunities, absolute pleasure to work with."

Lewis Sartin

Area Service Manager, MAN Truck and Bus Middle East

"Efficient and effective are the words that come to mind when thinking of my dealings with Ed Steele and his company. He is courteous, engaging and knowledgeable about the market place, which makes dealing with Steele-Dixon so easy. On point from our first meeting right up to my job offer and beyond, always keeping me informed and aware throughout the process. I would recommend Steele-Dixon to both candidates and clients if they want to use a recruitment company that understand the industry, the people working in it and how to deliver the best results."

Kevin Smith

Finance Director, Sherwoods Group

"What I look for in a recruiter and why I chose to partner with you is; (& these may appear common sense to you, but trust me not all recruiters do this) - Good communication - Listens to the brief and select candidates to brief - too many just send out CV's without matching to job requirements. - Personal service - Longevity of contact - i.e. too many recruiters have very high staff turnover - Candidates spoken to before they are put forward - I have had candidates being put forward when they don't even know what they have been sent for. - Briefing candidates before arrival at the interview - Industry specialist - hence in-depth knowledge and strong database. - Speed of response. - Good personality and nice to deal with."

Chris Elvidge

Former FD and MD, Drive Vauxhall

"I have been enjoying the exceptional services of Steele Dixon for over 20 years now, initially as a customer looking for a career and most recently as a client for the last 15 years in my roles at Nissan and Infiniti. As our primary contact, Neil Timms has always provided personally selected, appropriate candidates for a broad range of roles from Senior Management to key roles in Sales and Aftersales and has helped us significantly reduce our staff turnover by finding team members who fit culturally into my business."

Jon Roberts

Managing Director, Infiniti Retail Group

"West Way Nissan has a successful, long standing partnership with Steele-Dixon for our recruitment requirements. We consistently receive prompt attention, high calibre candidates and excellent communication. We look forward to working with them for future assignments and can recommend them as a quality and trustworthy company."

Andy Buswell

Group HR Manager, West Way Nissan

"I have been privileged to deal with Steele-Dixon for the last 20 years plus, in particular Allison Garfield, whom has been able to not only find roles for me, in the early years of my career, to now facilitating staff for my own business in the Middle East. Allison has always extended true professionalism and confidentiality where needed, throughout the time I have been dealing with her and a natural flair for finding the right jobs and candidates for me over time. In an ever changing environment for recruitment, multiple types of avenues to use, clearly the people make a difference. I cannot recommend Steele Dixon more highly and I am sure that their success and longevity in the business is a reflection of the service they give."

Retail Sales Manager, VW Qatar
