About us

Looking for recruitment agencies in Cumbria, the Lake District or Lancashire?

Recruit North Ltd  provides niche specialist recruitment services across Cumbria, the Lake District and Lancashire.

We place candidates into some of the most sought-after permanent and contract jobs in Accountancy and Finance, Business and Office, Hospitality and Catering, Marketing and Creative, Sales and Retail and Technology and IT.

We’re a small, independently owned, regional recruitment agency and we have 40 years’ experience behind us. We use our small size to your advantage!

We have the same (if not better) reach than our much larger recruitment cousins, together with access to the latest talent attraction technology, job boards and business networking capability.

Recruitment is ultimately about people and, with that in mind, we champion personal service which is supported, and not replaced, by state of the art technology and applicant tracking systems.

The business is owned and managed by recruit expert, Paul Murphy. Paul has worked in the recruitment industry since 1983 and prior to setting up his own recruitment agency, in Cumbria and Lancashire, he held management positions with some of the largest and most successful recruiters in the world including; Brook Street Bureau PLC, Pertemps Group PLC, Kelly Services inc and Alfred Marks Bureau (now called Adecco).

Formalities over, we’re a people business and we find people to work with people, that’s what we do!
