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!

What Jobs Does Portman Recruitment Offer?

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.

What Are the Benefits of Working with Portman Recruitment?

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.
