Construction workshop – 9th June 2022

On the 9th June 2022 the Ministry of Justice and New Futures Network hosted a virtual workshop for construction firms to learn more about recruiting prison leavers.

Leading construction firms already benefitting from recruiting people from prison, including Kier and Willmott Dixon shared their experiences, advice and knowledge of this area. There was also an opportunity to hear from Emma Wagstaff who is the construction National Sector Lead for New Futures Network.

Time was left at the end of the workshop for Q+A so that issues particular to the construction sector could be discussed.
