Employment for Excluded Groups Leadership Team

The Employment for Excluded Groups Leadership Team's vision is to help excluded groups overcome disadvantage and make work more accessible and sustainable for them.

The Employment for Excluded Groups Leadership Team drives the over-arching strategy to directly helping homeless people, refugees, ex-offenders and others facing barriers to work gain and sustain employment as they are the ones that face the most barriers when it comes to employment. As a result, the leadership team are:

  • Driving the strategy for other businesses to work closely with Business in the Community’s Ready for Work programme or through the employers’ own employability programme.
  • Making work more accessible and sustainable to people from excluded groups through their companies’ recruitment and HR policies, e.g. by implementing the Ban the Box campaign.
