Finding employment with a past conviction can be pretty tough. However, don’t worry, as you really aren’t alone!  

1 in 5 of working age have had a conviction at some stage in their life. Whether you’re male, female, a past young offender, over 50 or ex-military then we have employers to suit. There are many great examples of people who have gone on to make a success of their lives despite a past conviction. If you let your past define you, then it will. A past conviction should never stop you making a success of your life. If that was the case, then you effectively are serving something we call a ‘hidden second sentence.’  We believe anyone who wants to work has the right to do so, and our team of employment mentors are here to help you through all stages. From assessment of needs, any education, upskilling and training needed, along with updated certificates that may be required, interview techniques and finally selecting the right employer. 

If you have a desire to work, let’s meet up and move forwards together, leaving your past behind.
