Candidate testimonials

"I was referred to Working Chance three weeks ago. I’ve had more input and help from them in three weeks than I’ve had in the past two and a half years. Working Chance took me for a job interview last week. I started work this week, working with homeless people and drug addicts, helping them to change like I did."
Sophie, on day release

"A couple of weeks ago I was referred to Working Chance and I haven’t looked back since. Within one week, Working Chance got me on a course doing exactly what I want to do: an NVQ Level 3 in Information Advice and Guidance, which includes a work placement and which will, most probably, lead to paid work. I started work last week.

Employer testimonials

"We’ve had experience working with subcontractors within the prison system,so this wasn’t totally new to us. Experience has shown us that serving offenders are very reliable – they want the job, the chance, and the money, and it shows. I’ve seen a real growth in B’s confidence over the months – the false bravado and bragging have disappeared and been replaced by a more natural person. As far as we are concerned, she is exactly the same as anyone else and a real asset to the firm."
Ross Barry, LMB Supplies

"I thought I was doing you a favour by hiring an ex-offender, but in fact you’ve done me the favour. I’ve changed my whole perception about hiring ex-offenders and been educated at the same time. I feel very humbled."
CEO, Housing Association
