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.
