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 with real career prospects for hundreds of women.

Our work with women ex-offenders and 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 and never as part of a care or sentence plan, but because they are able and want to work. We operate in women's prisons and communities across London, Reading and Brighton.
