Talent can be hard to find in this hectic and ever-changing social work environment. Here at Portman Recruitment, we strive to find the brightest and best people who are looking to make a difference in their respective communities.
The need to find the best and most capable talent is the reason we offer a referral scheme, and why we have raised the money you can earn from a successful referral from £200 to £500! We know what a strange time it is at the minute, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t people out there who are after well-paid jobs in the social work sector. We believe this increase in the referral scheme fee is a great incentive for people to reach out to their talented friends who are looking for social work.
So, if you know someone who would be a great fit working alongside us then refer them. If they work in a role or roles that have been filled by Portman Recruitment for 12 weeks, you’ll earn £250. If they continue to work in roles managed by us for another 12 weeks then you’ll get the second instalment of £250, taking it up to an excellent £500!
Here at Portman Recruitment, we are dedicated to finding hard-working and caring social workers their dream jobs. From mental health and adult services to working with children, we’ve got the role for someone looking to make a difference in other people’s lives. With continued support throughout – expect regular catch-ups as well as out of hours calls should that need arise – we support our social workers as much as they support their caseloads. We work with councils across the UK to find people looking to care for the vulnerable, with a particular focus on local authorities in the North West of England.
We offer jobs on all levels of experience, hours and pay. Typically councils offer 37 hours a week contracts and look for people with around 2 to 3 years of experience in the social work industry. Some councils offer other perks and benefits including travel expenses, and to find out more we’d recommend visiting your local council’s website.
Our process is not analogue, we take a holistic approach to find a person the right job. We meet with the prospective candidate, discuss their experience and where they want to help. Before the interview, we are there to ensure you’re feeling your confident best, ready for any question that may come your way – you’ll feel fully prepped.
Your relationship with Portman Recruitment doesn’t end once you’ve got the job. We will be in regular contact with you, checking in and seeing how you’re doing in your new role. Should any problem, big or small, arise, then we’ll be there to fix it for you. Social work in and of itself is all-encompassing so the last thing you should be doing is dealing with other problems.
Further, we are a recruitment company that pays their clients on time, every week, every time. We also offer an optional inhouse PAYE scheme should you wish to use that.
If you know someone in Manchester, Salford or the surrounding areas of Trafford, Lancashire, the Wirral and beyond who would be perfect for a role that we’re currently advertising for then get in touch with us, refer them and earn up to £500 from your friends at Portman Recruitment as a thank you for helping us find such a talented social worker.

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.
