Justice in Jobs webinar

Finding work with a criminal record is fraught – and maintaining employment in complex new circumstances can be even harder.

Yet evidence and experience show us many justice-involved job-seekers are motivated workers, who can make the most of opportunities when given a chance. And employment and training provide the stability, purpose and resources young people need to move away from the criminal justice system and onto a better path.

But how can employers safely and practically manage the opportunity of hiring someone with a criminal record? How can workers support young people to secure and maintain employment or training amid challenging circumstances? And how can we, as a community, meet our responsibility to ensure marginalised young people aren’t left behind?

Justice in Jobs was a free, interactive expert panel webinar about how to help young people engage with employment and training. It was attended by nearly 100 people on Wednesday, 20 July 2022. We're pleased to make the full recording of the 90-minute webinar available to watch here.
