Your profile

Why is it important to keep my profile up-to-date?

When you apply for jobs, both your profile information and your CV will be available to the recruiter. To ensure recruiters can find relevant jobs for you, it's important to keep this information up to date.

What information is in my profile?

Information you provide when registering with reed.co.uk is saved in your profile. Your profile includes:

  • Your contact details
  • Your home and preferred work locations
  • Current and target job titles
  • Your personal statement
  • Your skills
  • Salary details for your next role
  • Your work history
  • Your qualifications
  • Languages
  • Driving licence information

Your sign in details and contact preferences can’t be seen by recruiters. If you would like to see how your profile is displayed to recruiters go to your profile and click 'Profile preview'.
