In the early 1960s, Reed pioneered specialist recruitment in the UK. Seven decades on, we have become the world’s largest family-run recruitment business, with offices spanning across the UK, Europe, the Middle East and East Asia.
With access to the UK’s largest candidate database and expertise across 20 specialist sectors, we are committed to ensuring that people are at the heart of everything we do to ensure we fulfil our purpose: improving lives through work.
Our social impact
As a family-run group of companies, established in 1960, the Reed Group has a strong emphasis on corporate responsibility and a track record of social impact, philanthropy and sustainability. Our commitment to social impact is driven by our company purpose: ‘Improving lives through work’, and we have three pillars of social impact.
The Reed Group
The Reed Group encompasses 11 companies all created with the purpose of ‘improving lives through work’, to help work, work better for everyone.
Since we were founded in 1960 by Sir Alec Reed, we’ve committed to continuously looking for better ways to help people and businesses on their journey through the world of work, whatever that may be.
The Reed Group has a unique perspective, gathered from all our specialist businesses across the globe in different areas of the talent economy.
Diversity & inclusion
At Reed we value diversity, and are committed to having an inclusive culture across all areas of our business, where we can all feel safe to be ourselves at work.
We’re on a journey and proud to promote inclusion & diversity among clients, candidates and co-members. It’s the Reed Group’s policy to support people who hold protected characteristics (under the Equality Act 2010) both internally and externally. While legislation guides us, our motivation for positive change comes from a much simpler place – it’s the right, human thing to do.
