VIDEO: Hear from Pierre Vangrevelynghe, Courses Director at Reed Online about what he looks for when hiring new Co-Members.

“When I looked at the job description there was a lot of great things that I really liked. A lot of it was about having resource within our own team which was great. We have access to our own marketing, our own CRM, our own analytics, which means that we can get a lot done.

“The benefits at REED are also really good. For example, you can buy and sell holiday, you get a lot of time for personal development and you can also get funding for that as well. At my last company we didn’t really get any of that. REED really want you to succeed and they really care about your personal development.”
