The UK’s only recruitment consultancy for women leaving the criminal justice and care systems.

Recruitment Redefined

Our expert team help candidates find the right job and support them for as long as they need. We work with some of the UK’s biggest private and public sector companies, finding jobs and volunteer placements for hundreds of women.

Our work with young care leavers helps them develop confidence, skills and financial security. For our candidates, a job is more than an income. It means a future where she and her family can flourish.

Candidates come to us freely, never as part of a care or sentence plan. Because they want to work. We operate in women's prisons and communities across London, the South-East and the North.
