Durham Recruiting has extensive experience hiring for this industry.  We recognized the need for an effective model, something far beyond the usual agency process.  That’s why we developed the Kellow Approach.  We identify the right person for the position, the right fit.

We listen and we understand what is needed.  We play the role of “match-maker” and find the right person for the role, not just “two feet and a heartbeat”.

We treat every job as specific and unique.  We don’t just keep a stable of warm bodies waiting in the wings to “fill” a role.  We perform a specific recruit for each role.  And that’s important.
