About Turas Group

In 2010, we started Turas Group out of a desire to train up the next generation of recruiters who care about competency, culture and character in staffing. Turas means “journey.” We think Turas is the best word to describe the fusion of an employer and job seeker travelling toward that perfect match. Start your Turas today!

Today we have had the privilege of working on more than 1000 searches for over 50 global brands/clients and have opened offices in Washington DC, Tunis, Raleigh and Dubai in 2018. We have had the privilege of working with some of the best brands in the business including, Amazon, BAE Systems, Lockheed Martin, Symantec, Informatica, Mantech, GD and many more startups.
