As well as helping you find talented individuals for your business, we use our extensive knowledge and expertise as an award-winning employer to work with you on a consultancy basis, positioning you as an employer of choice in a candidate driven market.


As a Gold Investor in People employer and a member of theRecruitment and Employment Confederation (REC), Cummins Mellor Recruitment prides itself on its commitment to best practice and its high levels of customer service and satisfaction. Our Chairman began ‘Richard Mellor Recruitment' in his back bedroom, but after an investment from an old colleague, ‘Cooke & Mellor Recruitment' was born! Friend of Richard and Michelle, Nick Cummins joined the business and ‘Cummins Mellor Search' was born, recruiting in the commercial and industrial arena.


Our outstanding reputation in Lancashire, built over 30 years enables us to introduce you to candidates in the passive market who may not be actively looking for a new position. Our headhunting service is highly discrete, allowing you to maintain confidentiality during your search.


Telephone screening and numerous video calls/face to face interviews help us understand the applicant in detail so we only put the most suitable people forward. This helps us get it right first time round!


Here at Cummins Mellor, we're passionate recruiters who challenge the status quo, creating better recruitment experiences for employers & candidates. We understand that no two companies are the same and as a result, we tailor our services to suit each individual requirement. That's why we have a proven track record for recruiting excellent quality candidates who fit with the long-term vision of your business.

We've compiled some hints and tips to help you become an expert in attraction, recruitment and retention. Almost 75% of job seekers quit lengthy job applications. Yes, you heard it right, if it takes longer than 15 minutes to complete your application process then it's more than likely that candidates will not apply.
