Reed is a highly qualified and professional recruiter who helped me in my job search. I met with my Reed consultant for a first interview where I felt at ease, and they were able to summarise my skills and competencies in a well-written cover letter, which aided my job search

It was a pleasure to work with Reed during a recruitment process, I can guarantee that their impeccable dedication, effort and kindness along the process reflects their professionalism, making Reed one of the bests recruiters I ever worked with.
I am lucky to have been a candidate of Reed. They were genuinely invested in placing me at a great company and helping me with my career goals. Very insightful, particularly in the tech industry. Reed is always conscientious, pleasant, and friendly, even if the outcome was not in their own best interest. Definitely, a recruitment company you want on your side. I highly recommend Reed if you're just starting your career or if you want to up your game.
