Employing ex offenders
Almost 20% of the working population (source CIPD*) have been convicted of a criminal offence and the police have cautioned many more. Most ex-offenders are successfully employed and work as well and as hard as people without criminal records.
The majority of ex-offenders are not untrustworthy or dangerous. Most juvenile offenders want to put their offending behind them as they get older and have responsibilities such as their family.
Connexions Leicester Shire works in partnership with the Youth Offending Services in the City and County and we have personal advisers who can advise you on employing an ex-offender. For more information contact the Connexions Employer Services Team on: 0116 262 7254.
