We’re expanding our reach and changing our name

Recruit Cumbria and Recruit Hospitality are changing their name and will both be operating under the Recruit North banner.

Over the past five years, the business has been primarily focused on recruitment and jobs in Cumbria and the Lake District but have also had increasing success, and demand, in the Lancashire, Northumberland and North Yorkshire recruitment and jobs market. “Formally expanding our offereing is a no brainer” explains Director and Founder, Paul Murphy.

Recruit North Ltd focused on permanent staff recruitment in a number of employment sectors which include; Accountancy and FinanceBusiness SupportHospitality and CateringMarketing and CreativeSales and Retail and Technology and IT.

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 PLCPertemps Group PLCKelly Services inc and Alfred Marks Bureau (now called Adecco).

In 2016 Paul decided to go it alone because he felt that both employers and job seekers were missing out on personal service as the recruitment industry, like many others, was becoming too reliant on technology. “We do have the same, and in many cases better, technology than our competitors” reveals Paul “but we use it to enhance and not replace personal service”

Recruit North provides recruitment and jobs in Cumbria, the Lakes, Lancashire, Northumberland and beyond.
