Temporary Contract

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I used Reed recruitment to gain some work experience as I was in the process of finishing my masters degree. They found me a job working for English Heritage, but I must say they had limited involvement in my temporary contract. I mainly spoke to the managers at English Heritage surrounding my temporary contract.


Flexible Hours, Various Opportunities

Only use you when they have a role they have difficulty filling. Unsympathetic if there is a problem - client comes first, not the agency worker. They forget without temps, they would not exist.




Use another, better agency.

No work life balance

I loved the job but found I had to spend most of my free time contacting candidates which my 9 year old daughter at the time didn't appreciate.

Enoyable role and great company to work for

As a Temporaries Recruitment Consultant there is no typical day at work as every day is varied and brings new and exciting challenges with it. The company is great with the training and coaching provided. This is extended in my co-workers as they are a great team and provide on-going support.
