Gloucestershire is one of the most beautiful places to live and work in the UK. The county town is Gloucester, while other principal towns include Cheltenham, Tewkesbury and Cirencester. As the 16th largest county in England, Gloucestershire boasts a wealth of historic attractions and beautiful countryside.
The country is split into three areas including the picture-perfect Cotswold villages, the beautiful Forest of Dean, which has inspired many great authors like J. R. R. Tolkien and JK Rowling, and the Severn Valley, which offers wonderful waterscapes and hardly-touched medieval sites.
In addition to its fascinating history and alluring landscapes, Gloucestershire offers many fantastic opportunities for a social worker.

It comprises 53 councillors spread between 9 constituencies, 53 divisions and 174 wards.

Brilliant service, great consultants who are always happy to help. Best agency I have come across.
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.
