Our talent is finding yours.

Our job is to help employers find, attract, engage and hire the talent which will help them to grow and make a success of their operation.

As one the region’s most experienced recruitment agencies, Recruit North Ltd provides permanent recruitment services to businesses and organisations in Cumbria, the Lake District, Lancashire and beyond.

We recruit across a number of key industry sectors and job roles, including:

In fact, there are very few job sectors for which we haven’t recruited! Whatever role you are looking to fill the chances are – we can help.

Finding and recruiting the right people can be a real challenge.

There’s a substantial increase in open headcount within thousands of high growth companies than ever before, and you’re all competing for the same group of talent.

This leads to candidates being inundated by outreach, creating too many options, and resulting in a lack of interest because it’s impossible to stand out.

Our existing and growing relationships with hundreds of candidates solves this challenge. We know exactly who is open to making a move, and precisely what their needs are in order to switch.

Make your life easier by leveraging our network and experience in engaging with hard to access candidates, and we’ll help you find, attract, and recruit the right people whilst you focus on growing your business or organisation.

For us, the recruitment process is relatively simple; we do it every day. For you, it is a very different story and we never underestimate that.

Really helpful jobs agency

I can’t stress enough how helpful this agency is. They prepared me for my interview with loads of info about the employer and the job, gave me loads of advice (I was nervous about the interview), gave me feedback after the interview (which included telling me I’d got the job), helped me with my resignation letter and if that wasn’t enough already, sent me a personalised good luck in your new job card! The best way to find a new job is via Recruit North. Thank you, especially to Paul.

Nothing but praise!

I would like to praise Paul for his professionalism, integrity and how he fully understands the requirements of the organisation and their ethos, in finding appropriate matches.
