Ex-offenders and felons can find jobs

Ex-offenders and felons can find jobs

 

Ex-offenders and felons can find jobsQ: Hiya,

My name is Tammy, my fiance  is an ex-offender, he served 12 month in prison, but that was 12/13 years ago.

He has tried to get in care homes.   The first one he tried he nearly got, but since he never told them about his criminal record and when they got his CRB he was refused the job, which I understand as he never told them.

But then when he tried in another care home, he told them straight away about his criminal record, but still hasn’t had any success.  He’s tried all sorts of jobs, but hasn’t had any luck in anything, from fast food, cleaning, kitchen porter as he has about 4 year gap where he hasn’t worked so think there are two reasons why he can’t get work.

Darren and I are expecting our first child at end of August and I be on maternity leave soon from my full time employment, so I hope he could get a job soon, not just for the money, but also so he can up his self esteem too,

He has had experience in kitchen porter and cleaning also laundry, but he would do anything just to have work

We need help

A: Hello Tammy,

Your fiance’s difficulty finding work may be in part to his criminal record but partly to a sluggish economy, but I can make some suggestions that may make jobs a bit easier to come by.  I encourage all ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs to go to their local One-stop Career Center.  There he will find a long list of services that can help him find work.  He will also find a list of open positions in your area.  There are also counselors who can provide one-on-one assistance.  Often these counselors have experience helping ex-offenders and felons and know of employers who may hire them.  He may even find opportunities for vocational training that could lead to a new career.  Services available include job referrals, career counseling, access to computers/internet, resume preparation, phone/fax machines, and copy machines, for job search use.

You can find you nearest One-stop Career Center here:

Another solution is to apply for temporary employment.  Many employers are in need of temporary help. A great deal of temporary employees are hired permanently. Smaller independent agencies are a better choice than larger, nationally known ones. Independent agencies are free to hire anyone they choose and are more likely to hire ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs.  You may find some in your local telephone directory.  Apply to them as you would any other employer.

I hope this helps
