Our recruitment process has become much quicker. As well as advertising all of our vacancies on the reed.co.uk, we also search using CV Access for specific skills when needed which, in itself, has been effective for our recruitment.
We would highly recommend reed.co.uk to other businesses for their recruitment needs, they have a great website, attract a lot of candidates to publicise their CVs and the support we receive is exceptional."
