Unlocking Opportunities: Inmate Employment Initiatives On Merseyside

The partnership

At Building Careers we’re a recruitment company that cares. We are committed to making a difference to all aspects of society, including candidates from all backgrounds and situations.

So, when ‘Liverpool In Work’, a local employment initiative, organised a ‘Meet the Employer’ event at Altcourse prison on November 7th, 2023, we had the team to provide expert guidance and support that was needed for people looking for a second chance in life.

Joanne Fisher, an experienced recruiter with over 15 years of experience, delivered a compelling presentation, fostering positive engagement with inmates close to being released. This case study delves into the impact of such initiatives, focusing on the third event attended by Joanne, who has been actively involved in providing career advice and hope to soon- to-be-released inmates.

‘Liverpool In Work’ has been consistently organising events within the prison system to bridge the gap between inmates and potential employers. These events aim to empower individuals with criminal records, offering them guidance on career paths and encouraging a positive outlook as they re-enter society. Joanne has been a key participant in such events, contributing to the rehabilitation and reintegration process.
