the art of telling stories

From the beginning, we have been on a journey of discovering the art of learning and sharing company and candidate stories and matching them to each other based on shared traits.

HOW DO WE DO THIS?

FOR COMPANIES

Every company has a unique story and culture. This is why we developed our unique and proprietary approach to recruitment, The Kellow ApproachTM.  We spend significant time with you to get a full picture of your industry, company, team(s) and your culture so we can strategically and efficiently attract the candidates we want.

FOR CANDIDATES | JOB SEEKERS

Looking for new opportunities can be hard, stressful and take a toll on you. Every member on our team has gone through the job seeking process and understands the ups and downs that come with it, which is why we make every effort to provide the very best service possible. Our approach means we don’t treat you like a number; we get to know you and act as an advocate for you by matching you with a company where you’ll potentially thrive at.

Sectors We Serve

We designed our proprietary recruitment process, The Kellow ApproachTMto go deep into the engagement and understanding of our clients and candidates allowing for significantly better placement success rates as opposed to the industry. We have solid experience across several sectors, however, our team has built, and continues to build deep knowledge and expertise in the sectors below.

Roles Levels We Hire For

Senior
Leadership

These are the decision makers who are involved in the overall strategy and direction of the company. Typically, this would be individuals who oversee operations of one or more business units and assign responsibilities to department heads. This also includes those who evaluate performance of the organization in terms of meeting objectives and determining where improvement can be implemented.

Mid-Level Leadership

These are department heads who, under senior level support, execute the vision of the company. They are deeply involved in the day-to-day operation of the business and have comprehensive knowledge of their specific responsibilities. They are responsible for and oversee all aspects of their department, particularly employees and operations.

FRONT LINE LEADERSHIP

This is one of the most important roles, as frontline managers/supervisors usually have a direct impact on the majority of staff. Working with senior management, they are closely involved in the day-to-day activities and ensure tasks are being completed. These leaders are critical in keeping to the company’s culture and cultivating great performance from non-managerial staff.

NON-MANAGERIAL / FRONTLINE

Non-managerial employees are typically responsible only for themselves and their work. They are placed into categories according to their job function e.g. administrative assistant or computer technician. They perform the day–to-day tasks assigned to them and are responsible to reporting their work to upper management.

  • I got the opportunity to speak with Deb on phone and we had a really nice conversation. She asked me about my past experiences in length and made appropriate notes. She even discussed about my volunteer role which is very uncommon for a technical role, which helped me tell more about my personality. Overall it was great experience.

    Dustin is literally one of the nicest people I have ever met. There is no one I would trust more to help me gain skilled employees than Dustin. A genuine great guy who has wonderful people skills, great enthusiasm and a proven record of connecting the right people to gain meaningful employment with the right employer.

    Working with Rachel has been a wonderful experience. With both phone and in-person interviews, she really took the time to get know me and ensured that I was at ease during the interview process. The interviews felt like pleasant conversations which I absolutely loved. Very friendly and very professional!

  • It was absolute pleasure working with Heather. Her knowledge of the job and open communication with hectic schedules was a breath of fresh air. I find personal communication in any service is lacking these days, but not dealing with Heather. She was always available to chat, answer questions and was a delight to just talk to. Thanks again Heather????

    Had an excellent experience with Durham recruiting. Fast, easy process. Chris Cudmore had me on the job site for a meeting the same day as my initial interview. Within two days, I started at a job that I can see myself working for a long time! Highly recommend Durham Recruiting.

  • I was a little nervous to work with a recruiting company because I had heard bad experiences from people I know, but working with Rachel from Durham Recruiting was an absolute pleasure. The amount of thought and care that went into the process was outstanding and she is also just a wonderful human in general. 10/10 would do it again!

    Carly Wilson is the best to talk to! She was very patient, as well as very personal with who she has at that moment. She puts all her attention onto whoever or whatever she has at hand and will devote her time to just even getting a hold of you! 100% Recommend!

  • Highly recommend Duram Recruiting from my experience with them. My experience was extremely timely and on my side regarding fitting me into the right project. They heard my voice, and made me feel human which as most people know, is rare to find in a company in any industry these days. I can only hope everyone experiences the same.

    I absolutely loved dealing with this agency, Heather and Diane are amazing Ladies. When we met, they made me feel at ease and spoke to me as if I was one of their friends, very warm and friendly yet highly professional.

  • Working with Bill so far has been a pleasure. His approach in finding the right applicant is refreshing. Their office is professional and in a good location. I would recommend Durham Recruiting for those hard working people looking to get out of the city and into the east end.
