New addition to the Unlock team
We are delighted to announce the appointment of Rachel Tynan, who has joined Unlock as our new policy and practice lead.
Rachel has previously worked in the civil service and higher education and joins us following the completion of her PhD and a stint at Open Book at Goldsmiths.
Rachel will be leading Unlock’s work in increasing the employment of people with criminal records by supporting and challenging employers to change their recruitment policies and practices, working to prevent unlawful criminal record checks, influencing government policy and working on other policy and practice issues including access to higher education.
Talking about her appointment, Rachel said:
“I’m really excited to be joining Unlock and working to improve employment and higher education opportunities for law-abiding people with convictions. Research consistently shows that re-offending is reduced where people are in sustainable employment or training, and employers and universities providing opportunities are contributing to a safer and more just society.”
