The Google Effect: Can I remove online articles about my convictions?
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 succeed in the world of work and get their life on track. Employment is about more than just an income - it means the opportunity to show what you're good at and be appreciated, to have a shared purpose with others and to have structure in your daily life.
We work with employers of all sizes across the country to find opportunities for women that match their skills, aspirations and needs. Whether it's your first ever job or a career move, we're here to help.
