Dickson has also represented the England Saxons and went onto make his debut for the Test team against Scotland in 2012.

He was named as the captain for the 2015-16 season at Northampton Saints, replacing Dylan Hartley, with Tom Wood shortly taking over the captaincy.

Northampton Saints confirmed that Dickson will be leaving the club at the end of the 2016/17 campaign to join Bedford Blues.

After featuring in 26 games, scoring five tries along the way in his debut campaign, Dickson was named Bedford Blues' captain ahead of the 2018/19 season.

In January 2019, he confirmed he will hang up his boots at the end of the 2018/19 campaign to take up the role of ‘Master in charge of Rugby’ at Barnard Castle School in County Durham.
