Breakroom raises £5m investment to help achieve our mission

Breakroom team September 2021

Making every job a good one

We’re excited to announce that we’ve raised new investment to help achieve our mission of making every job a good one.

The money will help us continue to grow and improve the quality of our data about jobs for shift and hourly-paid workers.

The round was led by PROfounders and Revent, with participation from Northzone and Nomad Capital, alongside prominent angel investor Jeremy Yap, Peakon CEO, Phil Chambers and co-founder of Simply Business, Chris Slater.

It also included the Resolution Foundation, a think-tank focused on improving living standards for low-and-middle-income workers in the UK, who help set the Real Living Wage.

We think now is the perfect time to be growing Breakroom.

Most people don't work from offices

The pandemic has shown that there are too many jobs that are undervalued and need to improve.

Whilst working from home has been a reality for many workers during the pandemic, the majority of the labourforce doesn’t have that option.

100 million people in the UK and the US are in shift-based and hourly-paid roles.

And recent labour shortages in industries like logistics and care have highlighted the need for companies to become more competitive in hiring.

Breakroom will help workers find the best job for them and help employers compete on the quality of the jobs they offer.
