Prisoners could work in call centres in job opportunity drive

The government hopes to reduce reoffending rates by making prisoners more employable

The Ministry of Justice is considering setting up call centres in prisons to increase prisoner work opportunities.

The plan is “one thing that could be considered” as part of efforts to make prisoners more employable when they finish their sentences.

No call centres are currently being run in prisons, but ministers are not ruling out such a scheme in the future.

Inmates already carry out a range of paid tasks including laundry services and printing.

The government wants to “transform prisons into industrious places of productive work” and make a 40-hour working week the norm.

‘Sensitive information’

It hopes to reduce reoffending rates by making prisoners more employable when they are released.

A new scheme, One3one Solutions – which replaced the Prisons Industries Unit earlier this year – has been tasked with growing the amount of work available in prisons.

It works with over 190 organisations which pay prisoners to carry out work for them.

These include companies such as DHL, the high street chain Timpson and Amaryllis, which has used prisoners to help provide recycled furniture and fittings for the Olympic Games.

BBC political correspondent Chris Mason said the MoJ acknowledged a number of questions would need answering before it would be appropriate to set up a call centre in a prison, given it would mean prisoners coming into direct contact with the public and, potentially, handling sensitive information.

A Ministry of Justice spokesperson said: “Prisoners who learn the habit of real work inside prison are less likely to commit further crime when they are released.

“For that reason the Prisons Service is looking at a number of potential schemes to increase work opportunities in prisons. However, no call centres are being run from prisons.

“All contracts with outside employers must comply with a strict code of practice which sets out that prisoners cannot be used to replace existing jobs in the community.

“Prisoner wages, for those in closed prisons, are set by prison governors and companies have no control over the level of payment.”


  • Further attempts to destroy the Middle Class of Britain in order to turn the mass people into a peasant easily controlled populace. Whilst the law-abiding people lose their jobs in the planned economic collapse, the criminals get rewarded with slave labour. This removes jobs from the common populace even further as will the nazi DWP workfare ‘slave labour’ schemes run by Unum aka Unum Provident.

    All as private equity firms like Warburg Pincus and the Carlyle Group use up the slave labour in their businesses such as Poundland and Holland & Barrett. Most of these businesses having been bought for pennies in the pound after being crippled by the economic collapse started by William Clinton and Robert Rubin by purposely stopping the ban on derivatives trading. Derivatives now owing over $1.4 quadrillion an impossible figure to pay off but a great way to enslave the World’s population into the New World Order system we see today in the zero-growth post-industrial society. Economic collapse and war are the two fastest ways to social engineering change and you are seeing both happening today.

    If you want to see clearly the real enemy of the common man right now you must look at the Livery Companies of New Jerusalem aka City of London controlled by The Worshipful Company of Mercers and the City of London Corporation. A sovereign state veiled as English with ancient pirate merchants veiling themselves as charities in order to divert eyes onto others but not on themselves. The British Empire continues to this day, its not English, Scottish or Welsh, its the City of London aka New Jerusalem. Those independent nations were destroyed in 1933 through covert bankruptcy and then openly in 1945 with the Charter of the United Nations.

    Forget the Lisbon Treaty of 2009, England was destroyed openly in 1945. Birmingham City being even more obviously under the control of the United Nations through its sign up to the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives. The word British means covenant (promise to pay) man meaning a slave just as Britain means covenant land, in other words the land of the slave. Slaves to The Worshipful Company of Mercers who created the Bank of England, British intelligence and most of what you know and follow without questioning. The Bank of England started the destruction of England from 1694. The same Mercers who pirated the true Geneva Bible through Enochian occultist Sir John Dee (007) in order to create the King James Bible which sits in many Luciferian Masonic lodges. Masonic Lodges which the Livery Companies are each based upon.
