Our Latest Jobs

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.

The Benefits of Working With Portman Recruitment

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.
