We are part of the REED Group, the UK’s largest family-owned recruitment brand. The Group of companies was founded on 7th May 1960 when Sir Alec Reed, aged 26, opened his first REED branch in Hounslow with just £75.
Along with Reed in Partnership and REED Specialist Recruitment, the Group also contains reed.co.uk – the UK’s leading jobsite, which attracts more than 150 million visits every year.
We effectively work for charity one day a week, with 18% of the REED Group owned by the REED Foundation.
The REED Foundation has provided seed funding for a number of charities, including Ethiopiaid, Womankind and Women at Risk. Founded by Sir Alec Reed in 2007, the Big Give has helped to raise over £100 million for UK-registered charities.
