Find talent

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.

Save money

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.
