For Candidates

Finding a Job

Finding employment with a criminal conviction can be tough, but don’t worry… you are not alone.

There are an estimated 11 million people with criminal convictions in the UK, many of whom are in sustainable employment and meaningful careers. A criminal conviction is not a barrier to employment.

We believe everyone who wants to work, deserves to work. Our team of Social Employment Advisors are here to help.

We employ people who have had a criminal conviction and will be able to support you through our nine-step candidate journey to help you secure employment. We will never reject anyone from our programme in the areas we operate.


If you feel ready for employment, review our journey below and speak to your local job centre or probation service to see if we operate in your area.

Whether you are going for your first job interview, your 50th job interview or you are changing careers, consider these few essential actions to ensure the best chances of success.



Offploy works with employers to ensure they’re ready to hire people with criminal convictions safely and fairly and whilst we do not list vacancies for people not on our programme to apply for, we do have some friends at Prosper4Jobs who may have opportunities available in your area.

To review their vacancies, we encourage you to sign up to their service.

Due to the high volume of calls we receive for candidate support, we ask all people looking for help in finding employment to email us directly so we can assist you quicker. Please send us a message below with your enquiry and a member of our team will get back to you shortly. Thank you.
