Recruitment in Trafford

Alexander Hancock specialise in commercial recruitment in Trafford. We are a local agency with a focus on placing the very best candidates into roles that range from entry-level and junior positions, to executive and senior management vacancies.

Our work as a commercial recruitment agency in Trafford means collaborating closely with local employers across disciplines like accounts and admin, secretarial, customer service and HR roles.

We are based on Market Street in central Altrincham, just a few miles from Trafford itself, and we place candidates with employers from Broadheath to Brooklands, and from Sale and Timperley to Urmston, Stretford and beyond across Greater Manchester and the North West.

Our recruitment executives pride themselves on finding the right role for the right person and vice versa, and our local knowledge gives us an important edge in terms of understanding recruitment in Trafford and the surrounding area at any moment in time.

Our roster of talented candidates is changing all the time and we have new job opportunities on a regular basis too, so we are well placed to make a match when a vacancy and an applicant align perfectly.

Why you should choose Alexander Hancock

We work on an ongoing basis to be the best recruitment agency in Trafford, Manchester and the wider North West. That means competitive pricing and a personal service to give employers and applicants alike the very best value from the recruitment process.

Alexander Hancock’s recruitment services include:

  • Full screening of all applicants including testing and checking of references.
  • A full refund guarantee within the first 12 weeks of a new job placement.
  • Service based on human interaction and experience, not computer matches.

This last point is important. Anyone can run a CV through a computer program and match it to job advertisements. We go beyond the basics, even visiting employers’ premises in person so we can make sure any candidates we recommend are a good match to the environment as well as to the key skills of the vacancy.

Because we are based locally, we are an obvious choice of recruitment agency in Trafford. Many of our most talented candidates live in the area, which allows us to place people into roles with very little commuting time, eliminating transport delays and giving employers a happier, well rested workforce.

Doing it for you

Whether you are an employer or an applicant, we work with your best interests at heart. We can hold first-round interviews on behalf of employers, to reduce your second-round shortlist down even further to only the most talented and engaged individuals.

Recruitment should be a warm and personal process. We work closely with all our recruiters and candidates, with open and ongoing communication at all times.

Thanks Grainne, and yes I certainly would be in touch if need be and I would also be happy to recommend you to any of my friends should they require recruitment services.
However if I may say so, I dealt with a number of people at a number of agencies and dealing with yourself and Leona was by far the most professional and helpful experience. Kind regards Melanie
