Why hire from us?
A conviction is no legal barrier to offering someone a job. We specialise in bridging the gap between employers and the untapped potential of women with convictions.
Here are just some of the benefits of hiring women through Working Chance:
- People with convictions are more reliable and stay longer in their jobs than anyone else, according to the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development.
- Women with convictions have a huge range of different talents and experiences so are great for filling skills gaps while at the same time challenging prejudice and creating real socioeconomic value.
- Become part of our community of forward-thinking businesses who value diversity, recognise talent regardless of background and believe in giving women with convictions a second chance.
