Blackpool may be famous for its stunning beaches, tower and ballroom, but this isn’t all northern town has to offer. From the Opera House, which has welcomed the likes of Shirley Bassey, Peter Kay, Tom Jones and Jim Davidson to its stage, to the welcoming Stanley Park, Blackpool Zoo, and the vast array of comedy clubs, including The Laugh Out Loud Comedy Club and Viva Comedy Station, the people of Blackpool certainly have a lot to keep them busy. And if that wasn’t enough, the Houndshill Shopping Centre, The Regent, Affinity Lancashire, Abingdon Street Market and Bonny Street Market provide locals and visitors a vast choice of designer brands, fresh ingredients and restaurants to really sink your teeth into. So, if you’ve been thinking of moving to Blackpool, but want to know more about the council, and what being a social worker there will entail, then please read on.

Blackpool Council and Portman Recruitment have a strong working relationship, because they value the quality candidates that we supply them with, and we appreciate the additional support they provide our candidates with, on top of what we give them. Whenever they are looking for a new social worker, they will send across available roles and based on the job specs, we’ll send across CVs that tick all of the boxes. Should a CV stand out, we’ll let the candidate know, and then set up an interview with the Blackpool Council.
Not only will we help with any pre-interview nerves, but we’ll also follow up post-interview feedback. Should the candidate be successful, we’ll arrange a start date and provide them with a beneficial welcome pack. This details the assignment, and provides the contact details of the candidate’s dedicated consultant, who will always be on hand to help with any query, question, concern or emergency.

Can’t say enough positive things about Portman Recruitment! Well looked after, listened to and supported. Go above and beyond to find the right role for you.
I honestly can’t fault Portman. Adam replies pretty much instantly and I think if Adam wasn’t there, I could call the Portman office and anyone would speak to me. It’s good to know that he’s there if I need anything. He’s been a fantastic support.
The staff at Portman do their best for their workers. Reliable and trustworthy - excellent compliance - they don’t rush you into jobs that aren’t suitable just to make a buck like some other recruitment companies, but really take their time to get to know you and your skills and match you with good employers. Highly recommend.
Very promising start with Portman, they got me a job to suit my very specific needs pretty much instantly and have been great to work with so far as they take care of everything for you. Would definitely recommend them.
Brilliant agency to work for. Really work hard to get the best for you, really personable approach. Highly recommend.
