About Us

Our History

Consultancy+ are part of Reed, and we have been finding ways for our customers since 2016.

We are authentic

We are accountable

We take action

Reed was founded in 1960 and leads the recruitment market in the UK today. Over the past 60 years the business has grown to become the UK’s favourite recruiter. We haven’t lost our original spirit of innovation, with a rich history of providing market leading, creative solutions. Consultancy+ is the latest in this long history of providing solutions that change the industry.

Consultancy+ shares and supports the Reed values of being fair, open and honest; working together, but also taking ownership in everything that we do. You can see this in our open marketplace that everyone can join, in our transparent pricing models that ensure you get what you pay for, and in our collaborative delivery team which works with clients to deliver exceptional outcomes.


All of our projects run through our Programme Management Office (PMO).

That doesn’t mean you’ll be drowning under our paperwork or administration. Instead, its in place to set the standards and provide governance for everything Consultancy+ delivers. The specialist, custom built project platform that underpins our PMO team gives total visibility and control over your projects.

Our PMO team’s involvement in your project varies greatly. From providing high level spend and progress reporting, through to a dedicated on-site / virtual resource as part of the delivery team. This flexes to your needs, and all depends on the way forward for you.
