Improving the Hiring of People with Convictions

11.00 – 12.00 19/06/2024 – Virtual session

This session is to hear from employers about the barriers they face when hiring people with convictions, and when hiring people from other diverse groups where barriers exist that, if removed, could help more employers get people into jobs.

Getting people into jobs has never been so important, yet there are people facing disproportionate barriers to obtaining work. In particular this includes people with criminal records, and the process for obtaining work following prison release or Release on Temporary License (ROTL). This session is to hear from employers about the barriers they face when hiring people with convictions.

The Industry Special Event will be chaired by Lord Lucas and speakers to be announced soon.
