Get rung often with Reed and although some are far away they do seem to be putting every effort into getting me work. Highest pay of all my agencies, which is slightly more when I have to travel far. My agent is fantastic and really friendly. It has good benefits, although I opted out of these easily. PAYE pay.
Friendly agent, good pay, Paye
As with all supply, not a lot of work in early months but more than others
Invigilator (Current Employee) – London, Greater London – 9 September 2017
Working at REED is very enjoyable as you choose which job you want to take up by calling REED directly. Once you have chosen your job, they ask if you are also available for other days. If so, they'll book you in immediately and send you a confirmation e-mail detailing your booking.
Supply teacher (Current Employee) – East sussex – 11 July 2017
I enjoy working for reed education. But I am looking for more reliable work that I can rely on as this is only agency work. I am very happy with the efficient way with which they work and the work has been reliable and frequent.
HR Intern (Current Employee) – Manchester, Greater Manchester – 8 May 2017

REED Guildford - words haven't been invented for how amazing it is there.
Senior Resourcer (Former Employee) – Guildford – 13 April 2017
REED guildford, is just truly amazing. the balance between having a laugh and working was spot on, very family feel where you feel comfortable but not comfortable that you start slacking. the best 2 consultants I have seen or worked with are located there and will share their knowledge and experience with you and help you every step of the way into making you reach your full potential.
I didn't think of them as colleagues I thought of them as friends who I worked with and shared problems with. If you are having difficulties outside of work they will do anything they can to make even the most simples things better for.
Temporary Agency Worker (Current Employee) – Bristol, UK – 21 March 2017
Reed is a good temporary agency, they strive to place you within work as soon as possible. The nature of temporary work means the hours and work is not always guaranteed and there are often periods of time where you have no work at all.
Service Staff (Former Employee) – Glasgow – 29 November 2016
This is a recruitment agency, so one week you would be a kitchen porter and the next a barista. It was beneficial in the sense you get to learn different skills in all aspects of hospitality, front of house and back of house. The only negative thing was they would expect you to travel all over the west of Scotland and they would not refund your travel or even give you a discounted public travel ticket, so depending on where you are situated you'd be working for your travel money alone.
Exam Invigilator (Current Employee) – London – 9 May 2016
I enjoy working for this agency because the consultants are understanding about what I am capable of in regards to jobs and can contact them easily if there are any problems.
My current job as an exam invigilator involves working in secondary schools to assist with exam preparations such as organising seating plans, handing out and collecting papers from students and making sure strict procedures are being followed correctly.
The people that I work with are friendly and we all work together to ensure the time spent at the school goes smoothly.
Suitable working hours depending on exam and school, respectable staff
Receptionist/Administrator (Current Employee) – London, ENG – 31 January 2016
Loved working with a number of different organisations but was difficult working with Reed Global and arranging hours that worked with my schedule. I often found that a number of different staff would ask my availability in one day to make sure it went on record for the whole office.
