What does REED do?

In their own words, is a job site, not a recruiter, so they work towards ensuring the jobseeker finds the perfect job for them, rather than hunting for anyone to fill the employer’s vacancy. Ultimately, they know that this will benefit both sides of the equation, as happy employees that have found their dream career will be a much better match for the employer than shoddily-matched people who just want any work.

With 42 specialisms to offer, REED provides an enormous range of opportunities for jobseekers, regardless of their skills or ambitions. Once registered with the site, users can view, research and apply for jobs, and apply for courses designed to boost employability.

These courses also cover a huge range of skills and qualifications, and are designed to fill in the gaps in any jobseeker’s CV, allowing a hopeful to improve their odds of landing their dream job, or tailor themselves to fit into the industry or company that they have targeted.

A brief history of REED was founded in 1995 to capitalise on the increasing importance of the internet, and was the first recruitment website in the UK. Branching from REED, the brick-and-mortar recruitment agency, it grew as the prevalence of online activity grew, and now offers over 25,000 new vacancies every year from employers in both the public and private sector. The REED offices have remained, a network of over 350 offices around the world that guide and assist the site with doing its job, uniting jobseekers and employers who will work together brilliantly.

Originally founded in 1960, REED itself has a global presence and notable expertise in Europe, the Middle East and Asia Pacific. Working with recruiters across the globe, they employ 3,000 people and have remained a privately-registered independent company to this day.
