Recruitment Manager - Adam Buckland, Bristol RSR


I moved from an SME Recruitment firm where I had hit a glass ceiling due to the company size… REED provided a bigger business, better structure and opportunity to have more control over my own P & L and budget.

My favourite thing about working here is the people, 100%… the kind of culture around the business is for shared success… everybody wants to make your experience here as good as it can be.”
