Our values of being supportive, honest and dependable have always been at the core of our business. These are the foundations that our agency was built on.
With over 50 years of combined experience in the team, here at Portman Recruitment, we do things differently. We want our candidates and social workers to feel they can talk to us about anything, and therefore we hold regular catch ups with dedicated consultants who ensure job satisfaction, and we’re always available for out of hours calls should any issues arise. We don’t see our candidates as numbers on a spreadsheet, but as an integral part of our business. Therefore, we go the extra mile to make the lives of our contract workers easier, because we know that they already have enough to deal with.
We value our contract workers, and believe that they should be given the same level of care that they provide the people they support. We have an open policy and a relatively flat hierarchy. Everyone is treated the same and there are no ego-driven decisions based on commissions here. Our candidates have a say on where they are placed and we provide genuine and honest advice about all aspects of contract-based social work. We’re a team, and we want our candidates to feel a part of it too. This is our ethos, and our commitment to you, should you decide to join us.
If you’re a social worker who is looking for a new exciting role or are wanting to experience life within another Authority, then get in touch with the team at Portman Recruitment. We work with a range of local authorities across the country and are bound to have a role that is perfect for you.
