“Recruiting safety and fairly: a practical guide to employing ex-offenders”

Nacro’s ‘Employer Advice Service’, supported by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS), has produced this publication aimed at employers and recruiters. The guidance outlines how to implement fair, safe and responsible policies and practices for employing ex-offenders, based upon a full understanding and assessment of risks involved.

“With over 20% of the working-age population recorded as having a criminal record, there is a significant talent pool that organisations cannot afford to ignore”

Funnily enough, Blue Sky agrees with this and recommends that you take the time to read the publication.
