Offploy Justice Personnel, an organisation that recruits staff into the criminal justice sector and reinvests the surplus into reducing reoffending, is celebrating signing an agreement with Reed Education to work in partnership, servicing the recruitment needs of the LTE Group.
Education specialists the LTE Group, are an integrated education and skills group which includes Novus, a social enterprise delivering education to a number of prisons in England. The agreement will see Offploy support the team at Reed Education for recruitment across all the LTE group’s brands.
The surplus generated through Offploy Justice Personnel is vitally important to Offploy, all profits generated are reinvested into our social arm and delivers a direct social impact to all parties, turning recruitment budgets into resettlement budgets.
This is the first such agreement entered into by Offploy Justice Personnel and is just reward for Craig Harris, Offploy’s Senior Recruiter and his team. Commenting on the news, Richard Strauss, Offploy’s Strategic Development Lead said;
“Offploy Justice Personnel is a unique service in that it allows companies to support the work of the Offploy Foundation by simply allowing us to address their recruitment needs. Every penny generated directly impacts someone’s life and allows us to continue the vital work we undertake.”
“Being a recognised supplier to Reed and the LTE group is a big step for our organisation in ensuring the sustainability of our service. The funding from this service ensures the mentoring and support we offer to people with criminal convictions will exist for years to come."
“Offploy has been a proud supplier of colleagues to Novus for the last two years. This move to become a formal partner in their supplier chain only strengthens our relationship ensuring they have the most dedicated and qualified colleagues in positions from English tutors to resettlement workers.
Cassie Knowles, Specialist OLASS Account Manager for Reed Education, commented;
“Reed Education have held the prestigious LTE Group account for over three years and supply Further Education specialists into The Manchester College, Novus, Total People and all other arms of the LTE Group on a national basis. We work with Novus to supply candidates who understand Offender Learning and wish to make a difference with their teaching. We are delighted to have on-boarded Offploy as a supplier for this contract and we are confident they too can provide quality teaching professionals to the LTE Group."
Offploy Justice Personnel is keen to support more employers in the voluntary and criminal justice sector to recruit more people into roles reinvesting the fees into helping people with criminal convictions secure meaningful, mentored and sustainable employment. This comes off the back of Offploy Justice Personnel’s game-changing funding from the Postcode Innovation Trust.
