Offploy, a social enterprise that strives to help ex-offenders find meaningful, mentored and sustainable employment has today launched ‘Offploy Justice Personnel.’
The new initiative, which focuses purely on providing staff for the criminal justice sector, intends to reinvest 100% of the profits into the social arm of the community interest company, helping to support more ex-offenders to find employment.
With this, Offploy is also celebrating the hiring of a new team member, Jen Saunders who will manage Offploy Justice Personnel. Jen has been providing staff for the criminal justice sector for three years and is renowned for her social media presence, candidate care and client delivery.
“The reason we launched Offploy Justice Personnel is to supply quality staff to the criminal justice sector and reinvest all of the profit back into helping more ex-offenders find work. Now the criminal justice sector can continue to recruit the staff they need but actually see that the recruitment fees are going towards a socially beneficial project which supports their service users”
– Jacob Hill, Founder, Offploy C.I.C
“We started placing people with criminal convictions into work in early December. Since then we have already found five great candidates sustainable employment, with more vacancies lined up.”
“Despite playing a pivotal role in reducing reoffending, it has been frustrating finding funding for this type of work – So we have had to start looking to other sources.”
“Having spoken with many people in the prison industry there is a bitter taste that recruitment fees for prison staff aren’t being utilised by the recruiters for a greater social impact.”
Offploy Justice Personnel is both approaching a range of organisations operating within the criminal justice sector and currently taking briefings for live roles.
