We work with candidates and employers across Greater Manchester, including providing commercial recruitment in Bury, from Bolton to Rochdale, and from Rawtenstall and Ramsbottom to Radcliffe.

Our past record of recruitment in Bury gives us an excellent understanding of the local jobs market, which allows us to place candidates into roles that are an ideal match for their abilities, ensuring employer and employee alike get maximum value.

The variety of roles and positions on our books changes all the time, including junior to senior vacancies, temporary and permanent careers, so whether you are looking for your next challenge or a job to last a lifetime, we can help.

Equally if you are applying for jobs in a specific discipline related to those we have already mentioned, please contact Alexander Hancock and we can recommend a role that we believe is the best match for your abilities and experience.

Why work with Alexander Hancock?

We believe in delivering maximum value, which is why we are among the most competitively priced recruitment agencies in Bury, Greater Manchester and the North West as a whole.

Our services include:

  • Personal recruitment services based on human experience, not computer algorithms.
  • All applicants fully screened, tested and references checked and verified.
  • A 12-week full refund guarantee period on all new placements.

A job is more than just a list of required skills. That’s why we can arrange an in-person visit to employers’ premises to see the working environment first-hand. In turn, this allows us to place candidates who are not only suitable for the role, but to the workplace setting too.

As a local recruitment agency in Bury, we can shortlist candidates who live nearby. Again this is good both for employees, who face a shorter daily commute to get to their new job, and for employers as it reduces the risk of transport disruption and delays for the future.

Taking the strain

Alexander Hancock want to make recruitment as painless as possible for employers and applicants alike. That’s why we offer the option to carry out first-stage interviews on behalf of the employers we work with, so only the most suitable candidates are shortlisted for round two.

Our team is tight-knit and we thrive on human interaction – candidates and recruiters are people to us, not just CVs and job descriptions. We maintain open communication with our candidates and employers so we know exactly what you are looking for throughout the recruitment process.

To find out more, contact Alexander Hancock today. We are always happy to take enquiries whether you are an employer with a role to recruit into, an applicant seeking clerical work, or even if you are already in employment but want to consider your next move.

You can speak to us direct by phone on 0161 929 6665 or fill in our website contact form and a member of our friendly recruitment team will get back to you immediately.


Good afternoon Natalie, ‘Recruitment as it should be’ is an apt strap line. A fresh, honest approach to getting to know people, rather than a processor of CV’s which I fear many recruiters occupy themselves with. I enjoyed our conversation  and thank you for your time for fitting me in.
