Ban the Box calls on UK employers to create a fair opportunity for ex-offenders to compete for jobs by removing the tick box from application forms and asking about criminal convictions later in the recruitment process.
Working Chance proudly endorses the Ban the Box campaign. We have been a part of the campaign from its conception, in collaboration with a number of other organisations.
When employers ban the box, they give ex-offenders a fair and equal chance to impress with their professional skills and abilities.
