And understand your pain points...

  • Cost savings

    • Each time your direct hiring process is extended or doesn’t work out, your costs increase. By working with us we can save you time and money in the long-run.

    • We offer a variety of service options to suit all requirements, from staged payments to help manage your cash flow to industry-leading guarantees of up to 12 months to give you that added peace of mind.

  • Handling counteroffers

    • There’s nothing worse than going through a thorough process and pinpointing the perfect recruit, only for them to accept another offer. This is regular challenge in the current market, with professionals in high demand. They will often have several offers at any one time, as well as being counter offered by their current employer.

    • Our experienced consultants always highlight the prospect of counteroffers throughout the engagement process with both you and your prospective employee, and take the time assess their motivations, skills and salary expectations to ensure they are just as committed to the process as you are. We also offer you our years of knowledge and up-to-date insight into your industry, in areas such as the latest benefits and salary benchmarks. You can use this knowledge to create an overall package which stands out against your competitors.

  • Candidate suitability

    • At Reed, our consultants work in partnership with you to get a clear understanding of your business and requirements for the role. Combined with access to our extensive professional networks, candidate database and in-depth market knowledge, we ensure that the only candidates you speak to are those who will be a great fit for your position. As well as saving you time and money, this ultimately ensures you hire and retain the right professionals with the required skillset in the geographical location you desire.

  • Candidates only seeking remote working

    • All applicants that we consider for your roles are fully vetted and undergo an interview process with your Reed specialist consultant. At this stage, we confer with you on any pre-screening questions you require, whether that be about their remote working expectations or whether working on weekends is required.

    • This helps us ensure all applicants are assessed to your specification before we recommend them for interviews. It also provides transparency between us and the professionals we are speaking to, so no problems arise further along in the process.

  • Too many agencies to choose from

    • As the world’s largest family-run recruitment company, we have been helping to improve lives through work for over 60 years. Our specialist recruiters are well versed in their sectors, they’re aware of the latest market trends, and have the best salary benchmarking information - all vital for finding the best candidates, promptly.

    • Our specialist recruiters will work in partnership with you and other stakeholders, using their extensive experience to ensure you get the right professionals for the task at hand. Reed’s fair, open and honest attitude to recruitment, market-leading guarantees and practice-led approach mean we can help you solve your people challenges fast.
