Meet the Team

Offploy prides itself on being a commercially responsible social enterprise. This means that whilst we are a community interest company and our sole purpose is to support people with convictions into employment we will do this with the lowest possible impact to the public purse. Our team ensures our activities continue to be of benefit to both our candidates and society.


Social Employment Advisor


I joined Offploy as a volunteer more than two years ago and was instantly impressed by its ethos.  I became part of the wider family as a Social Employment Advisor in 2021 and am constantly amazed at how the organisation helps and develops ex-offenders.
