How to Apply for a Job

To apply through Portfolio, you need to submit a CV form below and indicate whether you are looking for permanent or temporary work. In turn, a temporary or permanent placement form will appear. Complete the applicable form, filling in contact details, such as your name, email address, telephone number and availability. Attach your CV. You can also opt to register your details with Portfolio by sending your CV through Portfolio’s “Submit Your CV” navigational tab. Portfolio will then contact you to set up a registration appointment if we believe we can assist you in finding work.

What to Expect When You Register with us

When you come into our office to register or set up an appointment with a consultant, you will meet with a Portfolio staff member who will ask you to complete our registration form before interviewing you in one of Portfolio’s private interview rooms. At that time, you and Portfolio’s recruiter will talk through the form while discussing any objectives with respect to the job search process.

You will need to bring:

  • Your CV in paper form or email this to us
  • ID to show eligibility to work in the UK – this can be either
    • Birth Certificate
    • Passport
