"The Reed Graduate scheme from start to finish has been incredible. Being supported by the GTS Team throughout the process was great, I was offered advice, tips and encouragement throughout the application process and that continued throughout my 3 years. Since joining there have been so many opportunities for me including new roles and various courses to go on. A pay rise based on performance each year isn't bad either! It is a great scheme and one that I have and will continue to recommend."
