Milestone for work agency

Have your say

REED in Partnership, which has offices in Bury St Edmunds, has helped its 3,000th person in the region, into work.

The organisation specialises in moving the long-term unemployed off benefits and back into work and has been operating in Suffolk and Cambridgeshire since May 2008.

Martin Hickerton, senior operations manager, said, “This milestone is a result of working in partnership with Jobcentre Plus and our partners and the hard work of our advisers across the region. The jobs market has been difficult to break into in the last two years but both our staff and customers have shown tremendous resilience.”
