What MacArthur Recruitment does

We believe in recruiting differently; doing it how it should be done, how you’d like it to be done, breaking perceptions and building a philosophy, process and relationship that works for everyone, is sustainable and thrives.

Our Company Values mean we build lasting relationships and partnerships with you, along with honest and open communication, which results in a quality-driven, lean and congenial recruitment process that works time after time. 

MacArthur Recruitment is an engineering, construction and IT recruitment and search agency based in Keswick, Cumbria. Building on UK and international recruitment experience since 1997, we're approachable, independent and local, based in the heart of Cumbria, and filling roles right here in Cumbria.

We're a family business and our driving premise is that we want to meet people and interact face-to-face. We want you to be confident that you can entrust your recruitment requirements to us as we continually prove that our high standard of delivery meets what you need and expect.


Given the current climate, it is understandable that there is plenty of worry about job security. We are posting all opportunities that we receive on our jobs page. It is likely that there will be more contract positions available in the near future and you may be interested to read our jobs update in our news section too.

If you were thinking of seeking a new role, but have decided to put that off, we can still help - we can give your CV a free, no-obligation review; we can chat over your options for now, or for the future. Just get in touch, we are here.
