With offices all over the UK, we implement local candidate attraction strategies and actively seek referrals from every placed professional to gather a long list of candidates for each position.
We understand the frustration of receiving multiple applications to your adverts, of which very few, or none, are suitable for your requirements.
That’s why Reed thoroughly screen the applications on your behalf, and only send the most suitable candidates for consideration. Your specialist property and construction recruiter will also target the passive candidate market, ensuring they focus their searches on professionals who they know have the right skills and experience.
We are dedicated to only providing you with the best quality candidates for your company. We support both you and your applicants through the interview stage and can suggest practical tests to assess their skill sets in a real-life setting.
For all temporary roles, we provide a two-day working guarantee. This means if things don’t work out after two days, then there is no cost to you, and we will find you a suitable replacement employee.
We understand that the commitment of your temporary workforce is essential in completing your projects on time. We have the UK’s largest candidate database and access to the top temporary workers in the market.
All our temporary workers are screened and fully compliant, so you can be confident that the staff you hire are reliable and dedicated to helping you achieve your goals and deadlines.

To keep you and your employees safe, Reed Screening – our pre employment vetting service - can protect your organisation from unnecessary risk.
Including eligibility to work checks, referencing, and agency workers regulations (AWR) compliance, we offer a comprehensive list of checks and services, giving you peace of mind when hiring.
