Some facts about working for Reed:

 Here at Reed we care and we’re professional – in an industry that doesn’t have the best reputation at times – I hope we stand out!

 We are a family-run business and we just celebrated our 60th birthday!

We “Love Mondays” but we also technically work for free 1 day per week as 18% of our business is owned by the Reed Foundation which supports good causes around the world.

Our company values are:

·         We are fair, open and honest

·         We take ownership

·         We work together

We are also lucky to run many Local Authority contracts, we are a trusted partner for these clients and, as such, our conduct must be impeccable.

Would you consider joining us? I’m free to talk every week day from 8am onwards and happy to take evening calls too if it’s easier. And if we’re very lucky, perhaps you might tell your friends too – don’t forget we offer £250 per successful referral.
