North Texas HERC
Started in 2011, the North Texas Higher Education Recruitment Consortium is a collaborative response of member institutions to the many challenges of academic recruitment and retention. One particular interest of the North Texas HERC is finding effective ways to assist the spouses and partners of faculty and staff to secure area employment.
As a non-profit consortium of higher education and affiliated employers, our sole aim is to help the most diverse and qualified candidates find the right jobs at our institutions.
Our institutions are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion in the recruitment process and providing a work environment sensitive to work/life balance. We also understand that employment decisions often involve two careers and offer state of the art dual career search technology.
