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.
