Praise for Reed Education from our jobseekers
I could not have asked for a better consultancy. Reed were professional and at the same time sympathetic. I felt that they didn't just hear what I was saying but they were listening too. They looked at my strengths and suggested ways to work on the weaker areas of my C.V. providing me with feedback at the time and later, links via email to C.V. development sites.
Reed was careful to explain all details of my potential employment with them and used the information we collated to tailor my job search to fit. Thanks to Reed's specialist knowledge and contacts we were able to find an appropriate selection very quickly and I found myself in a long term placement a few days later.
The school have used Reed as a supplier of short term (cover) staff and long term placements for some years. The service received by the school has been excellent and a strong professional relationship has been established whereby the Reed staff understand the needs of the school and place appropriate teachers when needed.

I started working with Reed in January this year and within 2 days Reed had placed me in the perfect school. I found all the staff at Reed, totally professional in their approach. They listened to me, and found a placement that worked for me, with my skill set, rather than just popping me anywhere. I'd recommend Reed in a heartbeat!
Reed Education's professionalism, commitment and high standard of service to both myself and my school has been exemplary. They have relayed feedback between myself and the school in a timely and efficient manner and worked hard on my behalf to negotiate a daily rate of pay that made me feel that both the school, and Reed, valued my contribution. Reed has also successfully worked with the school to help me secure a permanent role there.
We use Reed Education to provide our school with supply teachers and teaching assistants and I am delighted to write in support and appreciation of the service we receive. Reed Education have always taken the time and effort to understand the expectations and requirements of our school, which is in the independent sector. They are well-organised and thoughtful in their approach and take the time to listen to any feedback that I may give her, making every effort to send us the regular supply staff that we like and trust and who know our school well.

From the first meeting the team were very friendly and helpful. They supported me in filling in the relevant paper work and talking through what I wanted from them to help me find part time work. This support has continued with regular contact about opportunities of work placements.
I have been working with Reed Education Hammersmith for several years now and the team have always provided us with excellent service. What stands out most distinctly is the way in which they take the time to understanding our school and the culture of our organisation in order to provide the highest calibre of teachers for our needs. Their approach goes beyond just matching skills, they find the perfect ‘fit' for JFS and in my many years of experience with agencies, this is a rare quality indeed. Reed Education are often the calm in my stormy day and I would wholeheartedly recommend them to any school.

This has been my first experience of looking for supply teaching work for many years, the last time I did this was 1985! Therefore I was not quite sure what to expect. From the first moment the people at Reed were very helpful with the filling out of forms, getting documentation and being supportive. What impressed me most was that this attitude continued. I was frequently contacted to be told what was being done for me and any possible opportunities that might be on the horizon. Equally impressive was the fact that my details were not kept just inside the local area. The branch contacted their neighbouring branch in Birmingham on my behalf when a job opportunity did present itself and I am now working as a permanent supply teacher in a Birmingham school. However my local 'team' continue to be supportive and I have used them to help me complete timesheets and even do some photocopying! I must say how impressed I have been with Reed and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking for a supply teaching position.
