Our services
With offices in the UK, USA, Middle East and Asia we aim to provide round the clock recruitment support for our client base through our team of professionally trained specialist consultants. TXM Recruit is a GSA contract holder, allowing us to supply workforce solutions to the US defence department.

We work closely with major defence contractors delivering bespoke support solutions that continually exceed their unique and time critical expectations, often supplying large numbers of individuals anywhere in the world within 48 hours.  As part of our service we project manage the flights, accommodation and all the necessary immigration and medical documentation for each and every candidate.

An example of how we go The Xtra Mile is our work with ITT Exelis as a supplier of defence contractors to the US Government.  We have worked together since 2009 and have become their main supplier of Western candidates. Our offer to ITT Exelis includes a skilled candidate pool, an office in Kuwait providing onsite contractor support and access to the very latest recruitment technology.

"TXM are one of the rare companies that can manage the myriad of the tasks that United States Military expects from a contractor. They have placed very qualified personnel on short notice in geographically dispersed locations through Germany, Qatar and Kuwait. They have tackled every obstacle with vigour and certainty with success being the end result.”
