Some facts about working for Reed:

Here at Reed we care and we’re professional â€" in an industry that doesn’t have the best reputation at times â€" I hope we stand out!

We are a family-run business and we just celebrated our 60th birthday!

We “Love Mondays” but we also technically work for free 1 day per week as 18% of our business is owned by the Reed Foundation which supports good causes around the world.

We are also lucky to run many Local Authority contracts, we are a trusted partner for these clients and, as such, our conduct must be impeccable.
