About Reed…

Reed is the largest family-owned recruitment business globally. Through over 60 years of innovation and organic growth, we now operate across seven countries, including almost every United Kingdom region, and we’re not stopping there.

Our focus is on progress (possibility, improvement and moving forward); it’s as applicable for our clients and candidates as for ourselves. We believe in a high trust, high-performance culture. We ask questions, we innovate, and we react with speed.

This is all part of our entrepreneurial culture and underlines how we approach any challenge and achieve our purpose of ‘improving lives through work’.

We are serious about what we do and about the careers of our co-members, but that doesn’t mean we don’t like to have fun too.

Throughout the year, you’ll have the opportunity to get involved in company events, high achievers away days, activities from our inclusion & belonging and wellbeing calendars, as well as being able to give back to society even more through our Big Give campaigns and localised charity fundraisers. See for yourself by checking out our Rewards section and our Reed Instagram.

In 2019 we launched the Digital Workplace, which enables co-members to connect, communicate and collaborate in real-time, work on the go, and access key data and files whilst on the move. In addition, every co-member is provided with a Surface Go tablet, utilising the very best in technology from our Microsoft 365 apps.

At Reed we want to attract and retain the best talent in the sector, which is why we are constantly adapting, and adding to our roster of rewards and benefits for all co-members.

For all co-members we offer workplace benefits that we believe to be some of the best in our sector, including: a generous holiday allowance (plus options to transfer / sell days), paid sabbaticals after 5 years’ service, Cycle to Work Scheme, health cash plan options,  moving house support, and funding for professional and personal qualifications.
