Keep Britain Working

A campaign to bring the nation together during the Covid-19 crisis

What is #KeepBritainWorking?

The objective of the campaign is simple, to preserve jobs and to protect livelihoods.

We’re living through a national emergency. A significant number of the workforce have already been affected and many more are facing anxious days and weeks ahead. #KeepBritainWorking aims to build a movement of positivity to help share, connect and inspire employers, workers and the country.

Many companies and workers are now facing anxious days and weeks ahead. We want to bring people together during this National Emergency through a campaign to #KeepBritainWorking. Whether you’re looking for work or seeking ways to sustain your business, help is at hand.

Who is behind it?

#KeepBritainWorking was co-founded by James Reed, Chairman and CEO of the recruitment company, REED. The campaign has already been backed by a number of businesses and their leaders (including James Timpson, Lord Alan Sugar, Liv Garfield, Luke Johnson), politicians (including Rt Hon Penny Mourdant MP, Rt Hon Caroline Nokes MP, Steven Brine MP) as well as industry bodies (including Recruitment & Employment Confederation). James Reed launched a similar campaign following the financial crisis of 2008/9.
