At Portman Recruitment, we know that all this uncertainty doesn’t mean that social workers aren’t looking for jobs that are well paid and are backed by a recruitment company that cares for them. We’re seeing a greater demand for social workers across the board, these key workers are vital in these strange times and the team at Portman Recruitment feel so privileged to be able to help them find work so that they can make a difference in people’s lives.
Here at Portman Recruitment, our ‘above and beyond’ service means our candidates know that they can rely on us to help them in their new role. Our dedicated social work recruiters work hard to make sure your CV is optimised, offer you interview tips and be a constant source of advice and support once you’re in the role.
A lot of recruitment agencies will tend to hound candidates, whereas here at Portman Recruitment we like to adopt a more laid back approach and understand that you, the social worker, are extremely busy. If we need to get in touch should you be unavailable when we initially call, we’ll just drop you a text or email and schedule a time that suits you better. We respect that the job they’re doing is highly demanding and our candidates know that they won’t be hounded by us on a regular basis.

Fantastic agency. Brilliant consultants who make regular contact. Highly recommend the service.
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.
