Ex Offenders Trying To Find Work - From Suzanne

Hi all. My man has been looking for work for over 9 months after his release from prison. A word of warning to those who think it is easier to apply for factory work. My man applied to one factory company who packs electrical goods. He got through his interview, was offered the job but on his induction day, he was told along with other new starters that they had to go through a CRB check. Straight away my man had to tell the bosses about his robbery offence and they thanked him for being honest. However, after that day they never rang him back with a start date and he has heard nothing from them since. So it just doesn't have to be certain jobs that require CRB checks, even some factories are now carrying them out. Regards Suzanne.
