REED is the highest ranking recruitment company in the UK and ranked 28th on the list of Top 50 Best Places to Work overall.

We are pleased to have been placed so highly among thousands of UK companies. Happy people are the key to delivering positive results for our clients and candidates.

James Reed

CEO & Chairman

A great place to work – as chosen by our Co-Members (employees)

The Employee’s Choice Awards are some of the best accolades you can receive as an employer for one simple reason – rankings are determined purely by what employees say about their business.

On Glassdoor, employees are asked to rate their satisfaction with the company overall, and key workplace factors like career opportunities, compensation and benefits, culture and values, senior management and work/life balance. In addition, employees are asked to describe the best reasons to work at their companies as well as any downsides. You can find out more about the awards criteria here.

Not the first award of 2018…

Earlier this year REED Chairman and CEO James Reed was named a Top CEO in the 2018 Employee Choice Awards. Since then James’ approval rating has increased further…

Graduates also shared their love of REED as they voted us 46th (out of 600) in The Job Crowd’s Top Companies For Graduates To Work For 2018/19.

Clearly our Co-Members, from Consultants to Central Support, love working for REED. Below are just a few of the reasons why…
