REIDsteel was one of the first members of the Jobs Foundation when it launched last year.

Our Managing Director Simon Boyd is one of its trustees while our Quality, Health, Safety and Environment Manager Jo White featured on the foundation’s website and in its launch video.

The independent charity champions business as a force for good in society. It seeks to highlight the vital contribution that business makes in terms of creating jobs, providing training and funding public services and, in turn, ensure that Britain has a policy environment which allows business to thrive, so they can be an even more effective tool in alleviating poverty and boosting economic growth.

Key to its success will be developing its Business Council – a coalition of business leaders who share its ambitions for promoting the good that business does.

It already has nearly 300 members spanning global corporates to local SMEs, with the ambition being to build this to more than a thousand members by the end of the year, representing all nations and regions of the country, large and small businesses, and an array of industries and sectors.

The foundation is very much in its growth stages, and it would be great to have more members of the business council. Membership is free, voluntary and private, and comes with no formal obligations or requirements.
