Here are PeoplePlus, we are committed to transforming the lives of people with convictions through our work in prisons. 

Our services have been designed to tackle the underlying causes of offending behaviour so people can make positive changes to their lives. 

With more than 500 people working to support people with convictions in custody and in the community, we bring passion, experience and innovation to public sector rehabilitation services. 

We also work with specialist partner organisations to help people move away from their past and look forward to a brighter future. 

All of our services are designed in partnership with the people who we’re trying to help and away from our direct work with people serving their sentences, we’re working hard to change attitudes towards people who can often be tarnished unfairly following criminal convictions. Our Social Recruitment Framework brings together organisations to tackle any pre-conceived ideas about hiring people who have previously been involved in crime. 

We also work with employers on the Ban the Box initiative to support fair and equal recruitment processes and have engaged industry to influence our employer-led curriculum delivered to our learners. 

We are extremely proud to be a Silver accredited Investors in People organisation. This means that at PeoplePlus, the right principles are in place but more than that, it means our people and leaders are making active efforts to make sure that there’s real consistency and everyone in the organisation can feel the effects.

"What I love about working in a prison environment is that no 2 days are the same. You are a number of different roles such as counsellor, adviser and at times the person that makes a difference in that individual’s life.  

There are also good career opportunities for an individual. I started as a supply tutor and I am now an assistant manager. At PeoplePlus you are given the opportunities to gain new skills and qualifications to enable you to be the best version of yourself."

"I have been lucky enough to work in a number of roles within PeoplePlus within the prison education sector, each of which has provided variety, challenge, and immense job satisfaction. The company recognises, values, and rewards the hard work of its employees, providing great professional development and career progression opportunities as well as a great range of perks and support for wellbeing."
