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.
