Client Testimonials

Turas Group are consummate professionals who are committed to delivering service excellence every time. I have worked with Turas a number of times and they always delivers. And contrary to recruitment industry standards, they are thoroughly nice guys.

Managing Director, Large Coffee Franchise

Turas is an extremely proficient and professional recruiting firm who clearly understand the needs of their clients and have successfully sourced extremely good candidates for me which have in turn have become some of my greatest assets.

Business Manager, Middle Eastern Food Ownership Group

Turas Group’s strongest point is that they always go an extra mile in being a real Business Partner with their clients, more than just recruiters. They fully understand the clients’ needs and the candidates’ skills as well and maintain the balance between both. I never felt that they are just recruiters who wants to fill roles, but rather real trusted partners.
