Unlock and Prison Reform Trust are investigating employers attitudes to people with different conviction types. We know that people with sexual offence or arson convictions find it more difficult to secure employment. While some convictions may make someone unsuitable for certain jobs, there are many more jobs where conviction type is irrelevant. We will work with employers and others to find out what measures could increase opportunities for employment for different groups, and test the idea that stigma can be reduced by raising awareness of the facts.
