Why hire an ex-offender?

Why hire an ex-offender ? If you’ve ever been convicted of a crime or you know someone who has, you’ll know how difficult it is for ex-offenders to be employed. England and Wales have the highest imprisonment rate in Western Europe – a whopping 139 in 100,000 people experience a prison sentence, and yet the overall proven re-offending rate for July to September 2017 was 29.3%.    One of the biggest problems with re-offending is the fact that employers fear … Continued

Well-being and Work Benefits

Those of us who work in the UK currently have the longest working weeks in the whole of Europe totalling around 82,000 hours over our entire lifetime, talk about a well-being buster.  Shockingly (or un-shockingly for some of us) during the time we’re working we only spend around 4% more time with our families than we do with our work colleagues. When you consider how much of our time is spent working it becomes clear that managing our well-being at … Continued

Choosing the right degree

Going to university is a right of passage for lots of us. It’s a chance to move away from home, experience actually looking after yourself (by means of instant noodles and excessive drinking) and make friends for life. On top of all this you might actually get a degree and use it to advance your career… just a thought! Deciding whether to go to university is a huge decision in itself, especially now that people are recognising that apprenticeships are … Continued
