Employment Consultation

Does your employer recruit people who have previously offended?

Would they consider it?

Durham and Cleveland PCC Logos
The Police and Crime Commissioners for Cleveland and Durham have launched a consultation to gain a greater understanding of employer’s attitudes to employing people who have previously offended.

Gaining employment plays a crucial role in preventing offenders from committing further crimes, however prisons report that just over 26% of prisoners enter employment on release.

Many offenders genuinely want to close the door on their criminal past, rebuild their lives and contribute to society, however they face multiple barriers to finding and staying in work.

Through partnership working with employers, prisons and probation services we hope to develop real opportunities to ensure people have the best chance to break free from the cycle of offending behaviour.

If you're an employer or can respond on behalf of your organisation - please click the link below to carry out our short survey.
