When positions become available in Salford City Council, or any of the other councils we work with across the UK, we are able to find relevant CV’s in our large bank of candidates and assist them with the upcoming process. Then, for the candidates with chosen CVs, we’ll set up an interview between the candidate and the council.
The interview process is a great way to get to know the council and authority you might be moving into, and our team will be able to support you throughout. After every interview, you as our candidate has, your personal recruitment consultant following up with both you and with the council, to ensure you get in-depth feedback from every interview that you can really use. If you’re successful, we’ll liaise with the council to arrange your start date and send you a welcome pack with everything you need to know!
Once settled in, you’ll still always be able to chat to your dedicated consultant if you need help with any issues or answers to your questions. We can also advise you on your next steps if things aren’t working out, and do whatever we can to make sure you have a positive experience.

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.
