When I was going through a time of job hunting, I had registered with a number of online employment websites and agencies in my quest to find a job. One website that I was made aware of was reed.co.uk. Previous to this, I had never heard of the website, but I duely registered with the website...

In early June I handed in my last University assignment for the year, but my joy and sense of freedom was short lived – I had to find a job for the summer. So, having dedicated a day to updating my CV (or perhaps two, these things can’t be rushed… well, that’s the excuse I gave my husband...

I signed up on Reed's website when I was living in Edinburgh in March. I filled in all the details on the website and posted up my CV. I had heard nothing from them, and no jobs matching the description I had filled in had been sent to me by email. So I decided to go into their offices. When I...

I need a change from the...

The branches of Reed in Bath and Bristol are excellent at recruiting and matching the employee to the right employer. Reed post over 30 new jobs a day on the Bath/Bristol sites at the time I was looking for employment. So there are plenty of jobs for you to browse at any time. I have had two...

I've spent the last week filling out dozens of online applications with various job agencies, needless to say, it get's a bit boring and rather tedious. So when I found Reed.co.uk it was like a breath of fresh air. You are able to search through their data base of jobs before you register...
