We Get The Job Done!

We believe our work speaks for itself

Working With Prisons

Labour Ready works closely with many of the Category D prisons across the UK.  With the tireless assistance we get from Governors and prison staff, we have  secured employment for candidates still serving and coming to the end of their sentence.

Over half of employers struggle to fill vacancies due to skills shortages, according to The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD).

Working with prisons to offer training and employment opportunities makes good business sense, as well as helping prisoners and ex-offenders get their lives back on track. It allows business’s a chance to unlock opportunity and tap into a new pool of talented, highly motivated people who you might not have considered before.

We know from experience that there are a range of ways to get involved with prisoners and ex-offenders, which have different business benefits. We can guide everybody through this process and help you to identify the best options for any organisation.  Many of the companies we are dealing with are already reaping the rewards of working with prisons or employing ex-offenders.

Selection Process Explained

We only want those men and women who really want to create a future without crime. We don’t offer “jobs”, we offer great opportunities to start a life long career.

Duty of care

We make frequent checks that EVERYBODY is happy and looked after. Our contact with our workers is daily. A weekly progress report is received from our work placements and forwarded to the prisons for their records.

Due Diligence

Our due diligence protects the future of our placements. We make sure all companies have sufficient liquidity and are of good standing before we engage with them.


“I just wanted to send you a brief email to mention that there was an incident on site today.

The incident was nothing to do with our works but it happened in close proximity to Calvin’s gang.

Calvin Ney was one of the first responders on the scene and he treated the injured party with compassion and respect for which he has been highly praised by all who witnessed his actions.

It was a traumatic scene and we are offering Calvin all of the support we can as have Kier.

Please contact Calvin and pass on our thanks and reiterate our offer for any assistance he may require through the channels made available by Kier and ourselves.

It’s another compliment to the quality of men you have supplied to the M6 project.”

Kind Regards,

Ian Appleton
