If you're a woman looking to build a career but you're worried about your conviction, we can help. At Working Chance, we believe no woman should be held back by her past. That's why we support women with convictions to develop the confidence, self-belief and skills they need to find meaningful employment. Employment is about so much more than just an income - it means a bright future and the opportunity to contribute to society.
We work with companies of all sizes to find opportunities for women that match their skills and aspirations.
