In the fourth instalment of our ‘Lifting the lid’ series, we continue uncovering the culture, opportunities, and people that make up Reed Talent Solutions. “When you’re offering someone a job and they get really excited, you realise it’s actually a big deal. You just made a really drastic change in someone’s life. It gives you a little kick. It’s rewarding. It makes you feel like you’re making a difference.” We spoke to April-Rose Kennedy RPO Talent Lead as she shares her journey through RPO:


It was an evening to remember when we hosted our annual High Achievers' Awards, to celebrate our global success. Inspiration comes from knowing the work you do really matters and this event is an excellent opportunity for co-members to celebrate one another's successes. A massive well done to all our award winners!
