Keep Britain Working
Keep Britain Working is a campaign that was launched by James Reed and 30 co-founders in April 2020 in response to the employment crisis as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic - with the objective to preserve jobs and protect livelihoods. We want to bring individuals, businesses and organisations together to support those looking for work or needing to reskill as a result of the pandemic with the end goal to Keep Britain Working. You can find out more about the campaign on the Keep Britain Working website or through following us on Linked In, Twitter @keepbritworking or Facebook
