These reviews will be conducted virtually via MS Teams and will, therefore, be Covid safe. In addition, the Kickstarters will have access to the Reed website which hosts a variety of information and downloadable resources to support the unemployed and those looking for new jobs including, Personal Effectiveness and Presenting skills. Reed will also offer the Kickstarter support to seek long term employment through our careers site allowing access to many of the companies we represent. Each Kickstarter will be employed by Reed Staffing Services Ltd as a PAYE Temporary and there will be a team of administrators to manage each placement. Requests for annual leave and reporting sickness will be detailed within our Temporary Handbook which sets out clear guidelines on how this is managed within Reed. Our proposed solution will mirror our existing processes as a Gateway organisation. Each employer will be vetted to ensure they are fit to support a Kickstarter and each Kickstarter will be supported by our expert teams
