There is no cost to be a candidate with Durham Recruiting. If you are hired by one of our clients, they will pay us a fee. This is standard practice in the recruiting industry.
We believe in the power of networking. We find many of our clients and candidates this way. Other clients contact us directly through our website. Many others come to us from word-of-mouth referrals because we have successfully placed candidates in the companies of their associates, relatives, or friends.
There are a number of ways you can register with Durham Recruiting. Firstly, you can send us your CV via the Candidate registration form located throughout our website. Secondly, you can apply for one of the jobs listed on our website or lastly, you can email your CV to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you take the latter option, please make a note in the email of the type of positions you are interested in.
In all cases, on receipt of your CV our team will assess your skills and experience and if we believe we can assist you in your search, we will call you to arrange an appointment for you to come and register in our offices to discuss your career prospects.
Registering online will only take a few minutes. If you’re asked to come into our office to register (usually for temporary or temp to hire), it will take about 30 minutes. Please bring a photo ID, a direct deposit slip to confirm address details, as well as certificates of any qualifications.
After our meeting, we will send you the required government testing. You can complete this in our office, or in the convenience of your home. The results will be emailed back to us.
We can never guarantee how long the job hunting and interview process will take. This can be dependent on many factors from the type of role you're looking for and what level of experience you have, to the time of year it is. This is a two-way partnership and requires both parties to drive your job search.
