Recruiting firm Direct Recruiters Inc. is merging with its sister company Direct Consulting Associates in a move designed to provide project-based, professional staffing and consulting support to Direct Recruiters' client base.

Moving forward, the companies will be known as Direct Recruiters Inc.

Direct Recruiters President Dan Charney said in a statement, "In order to truly provide our clients with customized solutions we must offer flexible contract staffing in addition to executive and professional search. Our sister company has been a leader in this space for close to 10 years. Also, because of Direct Consulting Associates' track record in supporting leading hospitals in the USA from an IT perspective, there are many synergies with our current Healthcare IT search practice that we will now be positioned to further capitalize on."

The two companies combine to employ over 60 recruiters and support professionals. The integration adds additional resources that will focus on meeting the needs of today's challenging employment market for highly skilled talent.
