Application Advice:

If you are looking to try different roles, I would advise only applying if you do feel you would be able to relocate or be geographically flexible. However there is still good progression opportunities if you stay in the same role. but you would not get the same exposure to all areas of the business.

Interview Advice:

Research competitors, local businesses and trends and any topical issues. Also rehearse role plays and ask lots of questions

Interview Advice:

The final stage interview for Graduates will be with a Director. As always, the most important advice is to to totally be yourself. Be prepared to be thrown curveball interview questions. If you do get any of these, the most important quality to exhibit is confidence.
Remember to use the STAR method whilst answering situational questions. Important qualities for the role are personality, tenacity, ownership/ self direction and passion.

Interview Advice:

Think about your why's (motivations) - why do you want.. the role? The company? The industry?

Product Team Assistant, Reed Online – Product Team at Reed Global
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

My main piece of advice would be to write a strong cover letter to include in your application. This is part of the online application process so I would recommend having one written ahead of completing the online application so that you have already proof-read and edited the content to copy and paste into the application. The cover letter should be targeted, relevant to REED, and include reasons WHY you're applying and what makes it an exciting opportunity for you. This is an opportunity to include a bit of personality, as well as demonstrate your interest in the role. A regurgitated cover letter that's really a re-written version of a CV won't stand out, but a personalised letter that includes your aspirations and career goals will.

Interview Advice:

"Fail to prepare, prepare to fail" could not be more accurate here, and has been my mantra since my first ever interview when I was 17. My recommendations would be to; research (with time to spare, don't cram 10 minutes before the interview); prepare answers to standard competency questions; also prepare questions you want to ask; have all of this written down in front of you ready for the interview in a clear document that you can easily read, so when the time comes to answer questions or ask questions, you have something easily accessible to reference. James Reed's "Why You?" book is a fantastic resource for interview preparation and I would highly recommend leafing through this ahead of your interview too.

HR & Payroll Administrator, Human Resources at Reed Global
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Really explain why you want this role and why you'd like to work for this Company. What it would mean to you, what you can gain and also, what the Company can gain from you. The skills you have to offer and the way you can transfer them into your role. Don't be generic!

Interview Advice:

Be yourself, be relative and be confident. Confidence in yourself and belief in your strengths is admirable as well as relating this back to the position you've applied for. However, noticing room for improvement is always important too!

Application Advice:

Set aside a good amount of time to complete the application. It is a long process.

Interview Advice:

It depends on who you get interviewed by as different senior managers interview different people. I had the Global managing director so my advice for him would be to stand your ground when he challenges you.

Permanents Consultant, Bristol Social Care at Reed Global
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Be sure to emphasise skills that are applicable to the job, particularly communication and sales as you are likely to be in a sales driven environment. Also, do your research on Reed as a company and the recruitment industry as it will show the Graduate Team at Reed you are serious about your application and not just applying as it is a Graduate scheme.

Interview Advice:

There are a number of interview stages, two on the phone and one which is face to face. On the initial telephone interview, be clear and confident and make sure you prepare beforehand! The second telephone interview will likely be a test so ensure you completely understand the information and think about it analytically - don't be afraid to think outside the box! The final face to face interview will be with a senior member of staff in the business and this can seem quite daunting. However, don't be afraid of this stage as they are only trying to get an understanding of what you are like as a person and a candidate to see if you will do well in the business.

Recruitment Consultant, Business Support at Reed Global

Application Advice:

It is good to show that you are motivated to progress within the company, and what you like about the company specifically.

I had to do a mock sales call as part of my application - this stage is fine, just make sure you tick off all the things you need to cover, e.g. introducing yourself, checking they are available, highlighting USP's of the candidates you are speccing etc.

Interview Advice:

Make sure you have prepared examples to highlight a range of competencies, and that you have researched the company.

Marketing Executive, Marketing at Reed Global
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Research the company and what is required in an operational role. You are required to spend at least one year in a client facing position before being given the option to rotate. Examples of this may include working as a recruitment consultant (Reed Specialist Recruitment) or as an employment adviser (Reed in Partnership).

Interview Advice:

Background reading on the company and how it operates never hurt anyone.

IT Project Manager, Central Support Services at Reed Global
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

I really refined my CV to show relevant experience and give me/my interviewers a lot to talk about, include some fun things that make you an individual because culture is a huge thing here and it is a very 'human' company.

Interview Advice:

Bare in mind it's usually two people from the company and yourself so take some time to research them, add them on LinkedIn etc. I would be honest, open and ask questions you are actually interested in knowing, rather than the same old, both about the individuals in the room and where the company is going. Let your passion show as this is a company full of really intelligent, hardworking and passionate people who will really easily tell if you're making it up as you go along. Don't be afraid to talk about your ideas, past and present and show how you've implemented those.

Application Advice:

Tailor any application to the company and the values of the company. When highlighting relevant skills on your application, provide specific examples (not generic ones).

Interview Advice:

Make sure you know how to answer competency based questions, and do have examples prepared using the STAR method, but ensure answers don't sound too robotic and that you are regurgitating information you have been preparing for a week or two.

It's a long application but the graduate scheme team are good at helping you through it.

Interview Advice:

It's a very corporate professional company, don't go expecting to have a laugh and a joke as depending on who you get they could be very serious, something which is reflected generally, it's not a 'fun' company to work for.

Application Advice:

Research the company and industry. Recruitment is a sales role and requires you to enjoy challenging target-driven work. Your first-year role will be operational (i.e. recruitment or sales) so you will need to demonstrate a desire to exceed targets in this environment.

Interview Advice:

Do your research of Reed and make clear you understand that it is a commercial business with sales and profit targets. Your final interview will be with a senior director and they will want to see your career ambitions align with a career at Reed. At branch interviews (for your first placement) they will need to see you are action-orientated and driven by challenging targets. If it is a commission-based role then the managers will want to see some money-motivated comments from you.

Application Advice:

I don't recall getting much feedback about my initial application, or the various tests I had to do online, other than that I had done very well on the verbal and maths tests.

In the written parts required I just showed I had done my research. There is likely to be a test you will do to measure your mindset. The main thing with that is to be honest with yourself and don't try and guess the ideal answers as it's designed to spot when people are doing so. If you answer honestly and are unsuccessful at that stage don't be disheartened. The mindset stuff works and if you don't pass then you likely would not have enjoyed the working environment.

Interview Advice:

You will need to interview not just to get onto the Grad scheme, but also to get a position for your first year, usually in branch. The grad scheme process is forward thinking and will see your long term value, but the branch Managers are looking for one thing - someone who can make their team money in the year they are on their team. You need to take that into account when interviewing, and a key question you will be asked at interview with your potential manager for your first year is why you want to work in recruitment. The right answer is to make money!

Be clear to highlight your achievements against quantifiable KPIs / goals / targets on your CV. Also highlight any sales / negotiation experience you have too.

Prepare thoroughly for the online tests (numerical and verbal reasoning) - do the practice ones several times until you fully understand why each answer is correct. This will help you massively in grasping the format of the actual questions.

Interview Advice:

Be prepared with clear examples of where you have hit targets in previous jobs (or other scenarios), as well as examples of where you have had to negotiate a difficult situation with other people.

Do not be afraid to show ambition and your competitive side - this is exactly what they are looking for. Be mindful at the same time, however, as REED are not looking for cowboys and girls - they want ambitious people who can also demonstrate honesty, integrity and tact.

They really do want you to succeed.

Interview Advice:

Ask questions at the end of the interview. It is as much a process of you choosing the company as it is them choosing you, so obviously during the interview try and present yourself as best and honestly as possible and then at the end instead of spewing off the popular questions you find on the internet, ask questions that you need to know to help you decide if you actually want the job. Not only does it show that you are taking the process seriously, but being genuine is always impressive.

Competency-based interview was very standard; I had a 3 to 1 panel interview and the interviewers literally just went down a list of questions on paper. The final interview with an MD was very pleasant, more like a casual conversation than an interview.
