The Team

Current (amazing) team of 10, managed by the fabulous Gill Owen and alongside a team of experienced Recruitment Consultants. 2019 offers a hugely exciting time for Portfolio as we've recently launched our next office in Manchester increasing our reach across the UK and opening opportunity for us to bring on some fantastic new talent. We have a team of experienced Recruitment Consultants in place that have launched this office – they now require more superstars to hit the ground running! You will have the opportunity to join a business that are true market-leaders in their sectors, growing what is a hugely exciting next step for our business. Manchester will launch with an established client and candidate base in the North West and North East regions from previous relationships established from London. This office opening acts as an extension to our successful London HQ and will be working closely with that team on providing more skilled eyes on the market.
