Going Forward into Employment (GFIE) is a Civil Service recruitment scheme aimed at providing a different entry route into jobs within the Civil Service for people who face barriers into employment. This includes those leaving prison and with unspent convictions. Providing experience to people with a wide range of backgrounds can help make the Civil Service more representative of the country it serves.
We work in partnership with the Cabinet Office GFIE team to support government departments and agencies identify and fill roles within the Civil Service. New Futures Network and our partners advertise roles to prisoners and secure the best candidates to apply for these jobs.
Recruiting directly into the Civil Service will strengthen the Government’s commitment to reduce reoffending.
