Cumberland Building Society

“Cumberland Building Society view CN as a key partner. The recruitment advertising team complete work to a high standard, often on very tight timescales. No favour or ad hoc request is ever too much. The staff are easy to work with, and will go out of their way to assist us.”

Chloe Turner, HR Controller - Cumberland Building Society
Stanwix Park

We have tried many different ways of recruitment over the past few years however none have been as effective as Cumbrian Newspapers.
The applications we have received are very suitable for the positions advertised and we have managed to fill a number of roles across the holiday park due to this advert.
Our representative at CN was especially helpful in regards to content, and the turn around time from our initial conversation to the advertisement’s publication was superb.

Sophie Leslie, Marketing Manager - Stanwix Park
Florence Arts Centre

“We recently decided to take on a new Building Manager and Marketing Manager to help us engage with the community and keep the centre running smoothly. Our first choice for advertising these positions was Cumbrian Newspapers. Over three-quarters of those who applied were from the local area; of our two successful candidates, one had seen the position in press and the other had seen it advertised on their website. We’d certainly use the same route again for any future postings”
