Tempus Novo has a unique strength; it’s understanding and direct links into the British prison system. Founded in 2014 by two serving Senior Prison Officers at HMP Leeds, Tempus Novo operates within the prisons to identify offenders committed to transforming their lives. Upon release, these prisoners continue to work with Tempus Novo to gain employment whilst also receiving hands on mentorship and support for a minimum of 6 months.
The Tempus Novo model is based on being bespoke, personal and sustainable. We work with a growing number of employers in and around Yorkshire who share the same vision and are willing to give ex-offenders a second chance.
We manage the process closely with each graduate having a personal case worker and mentor helping them and the employer through the employment process. If a graduate is successful, our support continues for both graduate and employer on a day to day basis for the first 6 months of employment.
The facts on why using employment to prevent re-offending makes a difference.
We work with people who want to change. We find innovative employers prepared to offer opportunities.
