Robert Walters offers prisoners more hope of work

Global recruitment company Robert Walters has written to the Minister of State at the Ministry of Justice to offer the company’s resources in a number of prisons following the publication of Unlocking a Better Life, a report into how to achieve employment revolution in UK prisons by think-tank Onward.

Robert Walters is offering resources across the UK to provide recruitment training and advice within prisons to enable prisoners to be better equipped to secure jobs post-release and wants to help establish Employment Councils, as recommended in the report, within the eight UK regions where it currently has offices.

Robert Walters, the CEO, commented: “Having reviewed Onward’s findings we have decided to pursue a scheme with the government’s support, to offer our employees’ expertise in recruitment advice to prisoners looking for help. Over the last few months, I have visited prisons in both the UK and Norway and currently the UK is lagging behind other countries in the rehabilitation of prisoners.”
