Who Are Portman And Why Should You Care?

Recruitment firms in the social work sector are notorious for treating their workers poorly, whether that’s through the provision of bad advice, putting commissions ahead of finding suitable placements, or the continuous phone calls that make up the hard sales approach. Ironic considering that ‘care’ seems to be lacking in an industry that focuses on it. This provides a great opportunity for a new(ish) recruitment business to give their candidates the support and respect they deserve, for example, through onsite visits, regular catch ups and out of hours calls, along with an informative welcome pack that details their assignment, payroll, deadlines and who to contact should issues arise. We’re Portman Recruitment, and that’s exactly what we do.
