We are the IT recruitment specialists of choice for a broad range of corporate, public sector and SME organisations recruiting across both permanent and contract positions.

Our consultants specialise in one of five practice areas: development and testing, infrastructure and security, business intelligence (BI) and data science, project management office (PMO) and business change, and strategy and leadership. So, whatever position you’re recruiting for, you will work with a technology specialist offering expert guidance to source your ideal candidate from a growing database of over 500,000 IT professionals.

Whether you are looking for a new chief information officer (CIO) or to set up a tech support team, we understand that one size doesn’t fit all, and have a solution to meet your company’s unique needs.

Reed is proactive in STEM recruitment and recognises the importance of encouraging women into the tech sector. As part of this, we operate our own women in technology mentoring programme and have signed the PwC ‘Tech She Can Charter’.

Development & testing recruitment

Our software development and testing specialists source candidates across the full development lifecycle for roles as varied as software engineer, front end developer, application developer, tester, and development managers for mobile, Microsoft, open source and more.

Covering all technology stacks in both a permanent and contract capacity, our expert technology recruitment consultants are embedded in their local development communities.

Infrastructure & security recruitment

Reed’s technology infrastructure and security practice recruits across a wide spectrum, including cloud security, GDPR and compliance, threat intelligence and network security. We specialise in sourcing for positions ranging from junior to senior leadership roles, including the likes of infrastructure engineers, ICT analysts, IT support and helpdesk analysts.

Reed has a range of service options for both permanent and contract infrastructure and security recruitment. Our national network of IT recruitment experts each know their local practice market well and this, combined with a large database of both active and passive professionals, allows them to source the ideal match for your company’s unique needs.

Working with us to recruit talented infrastructure and security professionals not only means you will have access to the best talent, but the latest market trends too, from our annual salary guides to our regular ‘The security room’ practice meetups.

BI & data science recruitment

The nature of the business intelligence (BI) and data science market has evolved over the years, which has resulted in the demand for more analytically skilled and data-literate developers. This change has prompted an evolution in recruitment approach, our consultants now spend a large portion of the working week networking, providing access to professionals with these sought-after skills who are not actively on the market.

Our BI and data science consultants are well-versed in recruitment trends within the sector. This, combined with their local market knowledge and national reach, allows them to work fast to source the most talented individuals to help your company develop and grow. We support with salary benchmarking and market availability, with the foresight to help you forward-plan to not only attract new hires, but to retain your current team within the process.

You also get full access to our BI and data science meetups, ‘It’s all about data’, where you can network with like-minded individuals and hear first-hand of some of the latest technology developments – you can even send along your current team for upskilling purposes. We span project, permanent and contract service options, and recruit for professionals from MI/BI analysts, all the way up to data architects.

PMO & business change recruitment

Changes to the world of technology are fast-paced and businesses need to keep up with the latest tech developments, or face being left behind. Reed’s project management office (PMO) and business change experts specialise in recruiting professionals who can help you manage small and large-scale projects that make an impact on you and your customers.

Our dedicated practice experts recruit for all roles across the sector, including programme managers, project managers, business analysts and product owners – on a permanent or contract basis. We have PMO and business change recruitment specialists in our offices across the UK, and with their national reach, and local market knowledge, they are best placed to find the right people for your business.

With a talent pool of thousands of IT professionals and unique relationships with those candidates who wouldn’t be found using reactive recruitment methods, we can help you fill any role. When working with our technology experts you will not only receive impeccable service, quality candidates, and a seamless recruitment process, but also access to the latest industry insights to help your business make informed decisions, and valuable networking opportunities with our regular ‘Get with the project’ meetup.

Strategy & leadership recruitment

Information technology strategy and leadership are the backbone to business success. Our dedicated technology leadership recruitment experts excel in rapidly finding the best leaders across all areas of IT. Reed’s IT recruitment specialists work alongside you and your stakeholders to help you find permanent, fractional, interim and advisory hires for roles including chief information officer (CIO), chief technology officer (CTO), chief digital officer (CDO), IT director and programme director.

We recognise the importance of securing both a skills and cultural fit when making senior appointments. With a network of senior tech professionals we have enough confidence in our executive search service to offer a guarantee of up to 18 months on each permanent hire.
