Employing prisoners and ex-offenders

Case studies and promotional material for the Unlock Opportunity campaign, highlighting the benefits of hiring prisoners and ex-offenders.

Unlock opportunity

Earlier this week (6 August 2018) the Ministry of Justice published a range of case studies in video format encouraging employers to consider giving jobs to people with convictions. A series of employers, prison staff and people with convictions themselves  explain how prisoners and ex-offenders can be some of the most committed and hard-workingemployees.

This post contains a selection of these videos as well as images designed to be shared on social media.
