What's different about a career with Reed Exhibitions?
We're proud that Reed Exhibitions is the world's leading events business. We develop, market, sell and organise over five hundred events each year, bringing together seven million participants around the world. That's a lot of wristbands.
It works so well because we believe in small team structures. Reed Exhibitions is a large organisation, but our exhibition teams have autonomy and independence, so they can develop expert knowledge of their local market. We want people to enjoy a broad range of real responsibilities, even if they are at an early stage of their career. We are a global network where people can learn from one another and we encourage people to connect, learn and copy with pride.
Our outstanding people are the reason for our success, with their enthusiasm and passion for what they do. We recognise this by giving them everything they need to develop their ideas and progress their career. Our global network means there are fantastic opportunities for our people to travel and expand their horizons.

Who are we looking for?
We need talented people with a certain something to join our teams across the world. If you like taking action and feeling responsible for delivering results, there's a good chance you'll enjoy working with us.
You'll do well at Reed Exhibitions if you have an enthusiastic "can do" attitude and are inventive; events is an exciting, dynamic business and we're often working to a deadline, looking for ways to make sure each event is a success for our customers.
We value anyone who grabs a challenge with both hands, has the drive and determination to work hard for months on an event – and still enjoys a real buzz when their event doors open. It's a lot of fun, so if you are professional and take work seriously, but don’t take yourself too seriously, join in and stand out.

I have been working at Reed Exhibitions full-time (More than 5 years)
Within my team, there is great dynamic and a great work ethic. Everyone is proud and passionate about the products they work on. Strong brands and great communication within teams and senior management. Travel is great and your opinion is valued. Good work/home life balance
Commission structure is a bit on the low side. Opportunities to progress can be limited. Certain departments over the years have been reduced and outsourced. No doubt there is a significant cost saving but this comes with major drawbacks. Pay is static
Advice to Management
Focus on the clients at all times and ensure staff are incentivised
I applied through other source. I interviewed at Reed Exhibitions.
6 (six!) interviews, all exactly the same but with different people asking the same, incredibly basic questions. My recommendation, in hindsight, is that the interview process is a pretty good indication of what the job would be like. In this case, the lack of communication and expertise shown in the interview was also in evidence in the role.
