Managing Director, Reed Talent Solutions

We’re working hard to support UK employers through the Covid-19 outbreak. As part of this we have collaborated with the Home Office, DBS, and politicians to develop our new 24/7 fast-track recruitment service and fast-track screening service. This service is available for both temporary and permanent recruitment and provides you with the employees you need in under half the time it usually takes.

There’s no extra charge to you, but fast-track recruitment is enabling agile, remote recruitment without comprising quality.

How does it work?

We have made valuable time savings by working with the government to agree on ways of streamlining our usual recruitment processes. These changes include using the latest techniques in remote interviewing, digital screening and a 24/7 operation to reduce friction and get you the staff you need sooner, when you need them most.

How quickly can you help me?

With our fast-track recruitment service you can expect your time to hire to be reduced by 50% or more. In many instances this will reduce the time taken to fill a vacancy from days, to hours. Recent examples of placements made using our fast-track recruitment service include:

  • Support worker in Edinburgh placed in 2 hours

  • Support worker in Manchester placed in 24 hours

Where can I keep up to date with screening developments during COVID-19?

Reed Screening are working with UK GOV to ensure that the screening process is being reviewed, as there are obvious challenges due to Covid-19 (coronavirus). Some of this is around meeting face to face with a potential candidate to complete an identity check. Therefore, we have influenced various regulators to change their approach in these unprecedented times.

Reed Screening will update this page on an ongoing basis, to ensure all new changes are visible to our current and prospective clients.
