What is Fair Chance Recruitment?

Fair Chance Recruitment is:

  • A set of benchmark principles that employers can apply to ensure they are inclusive and compliant when recruiting people with criminal records.
  • Designed in consultation with employers, data protection experts, and people with a criminal record.
  • A range of good practice, legal requirements and business-protective measures.
  • An overarching guide; each principle is accompanied by in-depth guidance for step-by-step implementation.
  • A tool to ensure that employers can find the best candidates, applicants are treated fairly, and criminal records are managed lawfully.
  • Inspired by the Fair Chance Hiring movement in the US
