Who Are We Looking For?

Qualified social workers with much to offer.

Are you a qualified social worker with at least 1 year’s post-qualifying experience? Are you registered with one of the following organisations: HCPC; Care Council for Wales; Social Work Scotland? Do you feel confident in your abilities as a social worker and truly want to help people? Do you want to further your social work career with an agency that can genuinely help? If you can answer ‘yes’ to all of these questions, then we’re already off to a good start.

At Portman Recruitment, we truly value the experience, education and training that our social workers bring to the mix, and do our utmost to support them in any way that we can. We’re looking for social workers that are dedicated, dependable and trustworthy, because they know how to plan their time effectively, are always there when their clients need them and show great empathy with every issue they face. We want social workers who will put their all into their job, because to them, it’s more than a job. It’s a reason for getting up in the morning, knowing that you’ll be making a difference in the lives of those you support. In short, you’re not only experience and educated, you’re also motivated.

If this sounds like you, then we recommend you check out our great range of social work jobs available, and then give us a call on 0161 327 0936 to find out more.


Our Approach

With a transparent approach full of guidance and advice, we help our candidates find social work jobs that we know they will love.

  • We firstly get to know our candidates, learning about their current experience, the locations they’d be willing to travel to and the team they’d like to work in.
  • A committed consultant explains roles that meet the candidates’ requirements, as well as the rate of pay.
  • If a potential role appeals to a candidate, their CV is sent to the hiring manager, and if successful, an interview is arranged. An outcome is usually given to the candidate within 48 hours.
  • If they get the job, a start date is agreed, a booking is created and we provide them with a welcome pack. This details the assignment, the payroll process and deadlines, as well as who to contact should they encounter any problems.
  • A dedicated consultant will check in with the social worker on a regular basis to ensure job satisfaction and discuss their hours.
