Alex Agyei
Job Title
Head of Sales

Over the last 15 years, Alex has seen many positive changes in the digital advertising space. Since working at it has evolved to be one of the UK’s largest job sites, and Alex’s career has also progressed – he’s gone from a sales role to Head of Sales.

What attracted you to initially?

Back in 2008, I found myself working in classifieds sales for a well-known print publication. That was around the time when everyone was buzzing about the potential of digital advertising, especially in classifieds and recruitment. So, I started digging into the market, checking out the big players like, LondonJobs (which later became Jobsite), and the Fish4 Group. Then, I stumbled upon – I had heard of Reed’s specialist recruitment offering already, and let's just say, the rest is history.What really grabbed my attention about was their ambitious approach to the market, along with the fact that they were family-owned.. Plus, their website was super easy to use, which I knew was a big deal for both job seekers and employers. It just felt like the right fit, you know? And from that point on, I was sold and thankfully impressed the interview panel enough to be offered a job!

What has kept you working at for so long?

While it might sound cliché, the truth is, the people I've had the privilege to work with have had a profound impact on my experience here and are a big reason why I continue to find joy in my work. The individuals I interact with daily have played an instrumental role in my personal and professional growth. Their support, mentorship, and camaraderie have made it an invaluable experience—one that goes far beyond any monetary value.

What excites and challenges you about your role, how are you supported by the business?

I'm passionate about my role because it allows me to constantly learn and cultivate commercial partnerships with cutting-edge technologies and platforms in the recruitment industry. At the same time, I'm able to nurture existing relationships with some of the UK's largest employers. It's definitely challenging, but the rewards are immense. What I love most is that each day brings new and exciting challenges—no two days are ever alike!

What do you feel makes unique?

The culture here is something special. It's all about collaboration, innovation, and helping each other grow. It's refreshing to be part of a team that values these things and actively promotes them every day.I've had the chance to grow a lot since joining as an account executive and now leading as Head of Sales. This kind of commitment to helping employees progress in their careers isn't something you see everywhere, especially in sales roles.On top of this, isn't just about business; it's also about making a difference in the community. Whether it's volunteering or supporting charitable causes, there's a real emphasis on giving back, and I love that employees are encouraged to get involved.

What are you most proud of at

I'm incredibly proud of our journey over the past 15 years. We began as a recruitment job board, and since then, we've expanded to become a market leader in offering courses and introduced a groundbreaking pay for performance product, which represents the next evolution in the job board space.

On a personal level, to have started at the company as an account executive and to have been challenged, motivated, and developed into the Head of Sales, for a company that is a frontrunner in the recruitment industry is truly fulfilling. I often reflect on my younger self, and I like to think that 15-year-old Alex Agyei would be proud of how far I've come and the contributions I've made to’s success.

Describe the culture and the people at

We have a tight-knit, family-oriented culture that values collaboration and the personal development of our team members. What sets us apart is our genuine commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion initiatives. This emphasis creates a warm and inclusive workplace where everyone feels welcome and appreciated.

As part of this commitment, I actively participate in our Race & Religion Inclusion Group. I've also contributed articles as part of our efforts for Black History Month, where we come together to teach and learn from one another. It's a meaningful way for us to promote understanding and unity within our community.

What’s next for you and your team

Working within the commercial channel is always full steam ahead! This year, our team is laser-focused on rolling out our new pay for performance product into the recruitment market. This product not only sets us apart from our traditional competitors but also opens opportunities for us to tap into new markets and wow new customers. We're excited about the possibilities it brings and are eager to see the impact it will have on our success.

What are you passionate about within the company?

Helping people connect with job opportunities, particularly in today's market, is incredibly meaningful to me. I vividly recall the challenges I faced during my own job search after university, which serves as a constant reminder of the importance of our mission at In an era where technology is rapidly transforming the job board industry, it's crucial that we leverage every available tool to enhance the experiences of both our clients and candidates. Our goal is to make the process as seamless and positive as possible, ensuring that individuals find the right opportunities to further their careers and achieve their goals.
