Part of our role is to connect prisons with employers to help businesses fill job vacancies and prison leavers to find employment.

Our specialists work with businesses across many different industries in England and Wales. We aim to address the needs of each business, helping prisoners and prison leavers realise their potential.

We will:

  • Work with you to understand the needs of your business and connect you with other employers who have recruited prison leavers.
  • We can also connect you with partners like charities that support prisoners and prison leavers with a range of needs pre and post release.
  • Take you on prison visits to see the work and training that goes on each day and advise you on which prisons to recruit from, based on your business needs.
  • Guide you through the process of identifying suitable candidates.
  • Remain a single point of contact for you within His Majesty’s Prison and Probation service.

A note on language

Throughout this website we have used the terms ‘serving prisoners’, ‘people leaving prison’ and ‘prison leavers’ to describe the men and women that fall within scope of our ambitions. We recognise that other terms are sometimes used, including ‘offender’ and ‘ex-offender’, but have adopted this terminology in consultation with the employers and other stakeholders that we work with.
