Portman Recruitment

Social Work & Care Sector Agency

Portman Recruitment

An independent recruitment consultancy that specialises in the social work and care sectors. Working with qualified professionals, we continuously and successfully match candidates with their ideal work placements throughout the UK. We pride ourselves in our ability to make our workers feel a part of our team. 

We’re well aware the recruitment industry has a poor reputation in the social care sector, and Portman strives to be the exception. Portman cares and supports their candidates in all roles, ensuring that are paid on time, supported and given beneficial career guidance, matching their skills to suitable roles, ensuring they make a difference.

Therefore, from the moment you join Portman, from interviews, to start dates and beyond, we ensure a smooth process. Your needs come above all else.  We want you to enjoy your job and to feel that you are making a difference to those you support on a daily basis, safe in the knowledge, we are right behind you with the support you need from your agency. 

From the moment care workers walk through the doors at our Manchester-based office, they can see Portman Recruitment do things radically different ...

As an employment agency, our whole mission is about looking beyond the title of ‘social worker’ to find out what the person behind wants and needs from a new role.

You’re not just another name on a spreadsheet, you’re a person that has goals, wants and demands. Throughout the application process, we’ll always keep you in mind and ensure you’re happy.

We were founded on the ethos of going ‘Above and Beyond’.

Our Mission

” We want to make the lives of our candidates as simple and secure as possible “

We want those who take positions through Portman to feel they are part of a team that listens to them, assigns them to roles they will enjoy, and at the contract end, trust us to find them another suitable placement.

We strive to match candidates and clients to suit both parties and support our social workers and care staff throughout their careers, with catch-ups and regular visits. 

Portman Recruitment pays wages in full and on time, through our own in-house PAYE scheme or a suitable umbrella company.

The positive feedback we receive from our contract workers is a testament to the high standard of service we deliver.
