About Us

We’re a friendly, local, independent recruitment agency in Cumbria

Recruit Cumbria is a Cumbria based independent recruitment agency which is owned and managed by Paul Murphy. Paul began his recruitment career with Brook Street Bureau PLC in 1983 and has since worked for some of the UK’s largest recruitment agencies including; Adecco, Kelly Services, Pertemps and Prime Time Recruitment.

We have 40 years’ recruitment experience to our credit so there probably is no one better qualified, to help candidates find their perfect job and for employers to recruit the right talent, here in Cumbria.

Whilst we are well known for, and are very successful in, recruiting in the hospitality and catering industry, our wider expertise lays in permanent and temporary roles across a broad range of sectors including: accountancy, catering, industrial, office, sales and marketing and technical recruitment.

Recruitment is ultimately about people and that’s exactly why we champion personal service which is supported, and not replaced, by the very latest talent acquisition, applicant tracking, job board and customer service technology.

Recruiting in Cumbria and beyond

Our central location in Cumbria is equidistant between Barrow and Carlisle which means we are in a great position to service the whole county including; Ambleside, Barrow-in-Furness, Carlisle, Cockermouth, Kendal, Keswick, Maryport, Millom, Penrith, Ulverston, Whitehaven, Windermere, Wigton, Workington and all surrounding areas.

We offer a free, personal and confidential service to our candidates and a professional, bespoke and cost-effective service to our employer clients.
