M&S offers prisoners work experience

Marks
& Spencer is offering work experience to prisoners to help them develop new
skills and prepare them for life in the community.

M&S
will take on about 20 category D prisoners (suitable for open prison),
following a successful pilot scheme in Norwich last year.

Inmates
approaching the end of their sentence will be able to work in-store for six
weeks at 20 stores around the country.

One
of the prisoners who took part in the pilot scheme will be offered a job after
impressing M&S bosses.
