How Do I Join Portman Recruitment, And How Will You Help Me Find A Job?

Joining Portman Recruitment is an easy, and fully-supported process that involves the following steps:

  1. We meet with potential candidates to discuss their experience, as well as the areas and teams that they’d like to work in.
  2. We’ll discuss the roles we have available that match your requirements, and should you pass our clearance and DBS checks, we’ll pass your CV (and any supporting material) to the hiring manager.
  3. Should they like what they see, you’ll then be invited in for an interview – the outcome of which will be decided within 48 hours. We’ll ensure that you feel confident and fully-prepped for the interview.
  4. If you get the job (congratulations!), a start date is agreed, a booking is created and we’ll provide you with a helpful welcome pack, as well as the number of your loyal consultant who will always be there to help you should you need us too.
We differentiate ourselves based on these facts:

Our high level of support consists of:

  • Providing honest and transparent advice concerning what our roles will involve, what will be expected of you, and ultimately, based on your experience, whether we believe you are right for them.
  • Ensuring a smooth process from your initial consultation and application through to interviews, start dates and future roles.
  • Providing you with a welcome pack when you start a new role, which includes assignment information, payroll and deadline details and all-important contact details.
  • Should you wish to move from permanent to agency, full support through the move, keeping you up to date with industry news, the job market and new roles we think you’d be great at.
We pay all of our agency workers weekly (week in hand), using an umbrella payroll service of your choice, that falls in line with our internal compliance checks. We also offer an optional inhouse PAYE scheme.
