Our Impact

Our Partners

From interviewing three women so far, it's been a very inspiring experience. What's impressed me the most is the ladies' willingness to move forward and focus on their future, and how ambitious they are to do that.

Why hire from Working Chance?

A conviction is no legal barrier to offering someone a job. When you employ a Working Chance candidate, it’s good to know that:

  • People with convictions  are more reliable and stay longer in their jobs than anyone else, according to the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development
  • Employees are proud to work for organisations that help people get back on their feet: Marks and Spencer reported that hiring people with convictions increased morale and motivation among staff
  • You are demonstrating your commitment to workplace diversity, challenging prejudice and creating great opportunities for positive media coverage
  • You’ve kept a woman out of prison, transformed her children’s lives, increased their achievement at school and helped to break the intergenerational cycle of deprivation and crime.
