Working Chance and Pret A Manger

Working Chance is an award-winning charity and the UK’s only specialist recruitment consultancy for women with criminal convictions and young women care leavers. Since 2008, we’ve successfully made over 1,350 job placements and enabled hundreds of women to turn their lives around and support themselves and their families.

For the past six years, Working Chance has enjoyed a fantastic partnership with Pret A Manger, the international fresh food shop chain. The charity has placed over 90 women with convictions and young women care leavers into quality employment with Pret, enabling these women to change their lives for the better and support themselves and their children – and providing an opportunity for Pret to benefit from an often overlooked talent pool of skilled and resilient employees.

We want to celebrate this partnership that has brought such great benefits to both organisations. From Working Chance staff members getting to know Pret’s business needs by working in one of their shops for the day, to Pret’s CEO Clive Schlee being the keynote speaker at a special Working Chance reception at the House of Lords, this has been a strong partnership based on shared ideals and a passion to tackle ingrained social issues. We look forward to continuing to work closely with Pret to create a safer and happier future for even more disadvantaged women.
