Around 70,000 people are released from prison each year. Many worked successfully before going to prison. Your business can tap into a diverse talent pool of people with a range of backgrounds and life experiences. Prison leavers have a wide range of skills to suit almost any sector, including English, Maths, ICT and industry level qualifications.
Businesses that recruit and employ this way earn loyalty from offering people a second chance. Employers report people staying with them for longer than average. This reduces recruitment costs and increases staff retention.
Make a difference
An opportunity can transform not just one life but many. Each year an estimated 200,000 children had a parent in prison. Employment opportunities for those parents can make a huge difference to their families and wider communities.
