REED invest heavily in the training of REED Co-Members right from induction. REED gives a really thorough induction training which is renowned throughout the industry as being as good as you can get and that follows straight into what we call the REED Training Academy.

As a people business People tend to come first, how we behave is important, how we act towards our fellow co-members or clients or candidates is a big part of what we do.

We found it really doesn't matter if you are coming from a recruitment background or if you've never come from a recruitment background. We've looked at our most successful people that have been successful in REED, we looked for patterns in that and really we've had people that have been successful whether they have been an accountant, ex-military or indeed from another recruitment environment.
