REED Scotland have won S1 Jobs’ ‘Best Large Recruitment Consultancy’ award for the 6th year in a row.

We were judged on 5 key areas:

  • How our vision and values have driven organisational activities
  • Do we have a culture of motivating our staff at the heart of our approach to business
  • Our approach to people development and how this is measured to retain a competitive edge
  • Can we demonstrate a culture of motivating our staff lies at the heart of our approach to business and how our employee benefits package supports this culture
  • How we measure and use staff satisfaction results to continuously improve our approach to best practice in people management

Best Large Recruitment Consultancy – Winner – REED

Why REED won the award:

“One of the challenges facing a national or international recruitment business is ensuring that the values and vision of the business is fully understood and appreciated by all the people who work there. The winning entry in this category not only described this creed in detail but backed it up with testimonials and first class case studies that endorse the realisation of those values. Their commitment to the growth and development of their people is clearly “World Class” with extensive L&D facilities and other resources being made available to facilitate the delivery of industry recognised and formal accreditation. Importantly, their commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility is seeded deeply in their values and activities and this extends way beyond the front doors of their offices. Their entry also provided numerous client testimonials that spoke of their stunning commitment and investment in those relationships. Those testimonials also substantiated an effective and comprehensive delivery of a quality service to their candidates – despite the size of the business, it was clear that their front line consultants really understand the needs of their candidates and care about the outcomes.”

Some Feedback from the Head of Consultancy at S1, Billy Girvan, following the awards:

“Well, what can I say! Stunning entry and a totally deserved win.”

“For those who thought that the revised scoring criteria this year would put an end to REED walking away with the top gong were proved absolutely wrong. Not only did you get more votes from the public than anyone else but your entry was top notch. That’s not to say the competition was weak – far from it, it was just a case of you guys being too good for the rest!”

2018 was an excellent year of recognition for REED, with other awards including REED as a best place for graduates to work (Job Crowd), and REED making the top 30 places to work in the UK; and number one in recruitment on Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work list.
