TALK TO A SPECIALIST
Read more of what our candidates and clients have to say...
"Since using Reed's recruitment services, we have been provided with several candidates who have remained within our employment on a long term basis. We find that the candidates have all been carefully considered by Reed for both ability to fulfil the role and suitability to fit into our team. We find this works exceptionally well as we have been provided consistency since requesting our first placement. We have found that Sam Morris (Business Support), our point of contact from the beginning, has achieved maximum efficiency in providing candidates as she has got to know our business and team well and always strives to ensure she finds the best match."

"David Anderson was very caring and listened to my answers to his questions and made me feel for the duration of his phone call with me that I was important. He also made me feel he was doing his job thoroughly ensuring who he recommends to his Client is correct for the vacancy. It is a talent David has. I am sure your company ensures this is portrayed by your recruiters. Reeds are professional and well organised and certainly you are my favourite recruiters."
Colin, June 2016
"I am extremely happy with the service that Reed in Southampton provide to me and Sam Morris and Hannah Webb (Reed Business Support) are lovely to deal with. They are always very accommodating and keep us up to date with everything that we need to know regarding our placement's."

Alison, May 2016
"I have been very happy with my time on placement at Utilita and the support Rachel Grimston (Reed Hospitality & Leisure) and the rest of staff have given me throughout the last 14 weeks. I would highly recommend Reed to any of my friends."
David, April 2016
"We received excellent service from Craig Baker (Reed Hospitality & Leisure) regarding recruiting for two Chefs, which your competitors have struggled to recruit the right calibre. I found that you were genuinely interested in what I was saying about the criteria of our chefs . I felt the chefs we interviewed really wanted the job and hopefully they will stay with us for the long term. I was impressed with the after service, which in 10 years I have never had with pervious companies. I would not hesitate to recommend you to my fellow worker."
Michaela, Chichester, April 2016
"I would just like to formally thank Jamie Bray (Reed Education) for the effort and efficiency you have put into finding an appropriate member of staff for the school. I think your understanding of settings such as ours has really helped with this. In light of this, if we were to use a recruitment agency I am happy to guarantee that we would only use your company exclusively for at least 6 months."
Head Teacher, February 2016
"I joined Reed in early November 2015 as a qualified teacher for supply work while looking for a full time teaching position. Until then, my experience of other teaching agencies had been that while supply teachers were in big demand, full time or even part time positions were few and far between. Imagine my surprise, then, when within days of signing up with Reed their educational department had arranged an interview for a full time position in my specialist field as well as supply teaching days with several schools wanting to 'try me out' with a view to a long term hire.
I am glad to say that thanks to the care the education team took in matching my career profile with relevant positions I accepted the first post I interviewed for and started the very next day! While I recognise my interactions with Reed have been over a very short period (one week), it is proving to be an excellent choice not only because it secured work for me so quickly but also the on-going dedication and commitment I feel the team as a whole give me in supporting me in my placement as well as generally as their employee.
Unlike other agencies I have used in the past, Reed's staff maintain constant personal contact - not just emails and texts - and even call to check how interviews and work has gone. My only regret is not having signed up to Reed sooner!"
Mr Jell, November 2015
"Philippa [Reed Business Support], you have been of great value in finding the right candidate for the role in record time! You took the time to understand what I needed and were on the case to ask the right additional questions to succeed in finding great candidates. I really felt that you made me a priority and your experience showed by favouring my favourite candidate as well. Thanks for the great job and professional service. I can definitely recommend you and will choose you again in the future."
Better Life Worldwide LTD, October 2015
"I have found Sam Morris [Reed Business Support] and her team extremely professional in their approach, very helpful and you feel they are on your side, they work hard for you in all areas, from securing roles for you through to the end, then securing other roles, any questions and queries are answered very quickly. I owe Sam Morris and her team so much, and I am grateful for the opportunities they have given to me. I would without hesitation recommend the services and support supplied by Reed, Southampton, Sam Morris and her team."
Helen, October 2015
"We have employed two individuals immediately after interview as they were of such a high calibre. Danielle Orton is always very polite, professional and extremely helpful. She works quickly and is always very willing to help us with all of our needs. I will be recommending that the rest of my company use the services of Danielle at REED Education for all Senior Leadership Positions."
Busy Bee's Nursery, September 2015
"From start to finish Ashley Evans [REED Accountancy] provided a friendly, professional and efficient service which made my experience as a temporary candidate an easy and enjoyable one. Always on hand to answer any queries I would welcome the chance to work with Ashley again."
Mr Briscoe, September 2015
"My recent experience of Reed (specifically Justine Arnold in Southampton Insurance) has been exceptional... Her communication throughout has been professional, efficient, friendly and genuinely enthusiastic. As such I would not hesitate to recommend her to both clients and applicants alike"
Contractor at HSBC
"Lisa England [REED Insurance] was absolutely fabulous, I can not fault her. She listened to my brief and understood my requirements in order to find me the right persons that would fit into my team...It has all ended so well with two new recruits that have slotted perfectly well into the team. Thank you Lisa"
Client Services Manager, Didcot
"Following an on line application Jay Singh [Reed Engineering] contacted me with further information reference the position I had applied for. At all times he was concise and knowledgeable about the position and was able to answer any questions raised if not immediately then within a reasonable time scale, usually within an hour, either by email with a follow up phone call or vice versa. After any interview that I attended he would always be available to take my feedback and would invariably get back to me with employer feedback within 24 hours. He was always enthusiastic and never found any request or question from me to be trivial."
Service, Qualification and Commissioning Engineer
"Mark Broughton [REED Engineering] has been helping me to look for a suitable candidate to fill our current vacancy for a Group Scheme Administrator. I can confirm that, since working with Mark, I have always found him to be extremely professional, conscientious, energetic and above all "human". He has taken great care in listening to the specific skills that I have been looking for in a candidate and has acted quickly and efficiently to help to fill the role. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mark and his Company to help with any recruitment needs."
