We believe change is possible and everyone deserves a second chance.

Working Fields is a mission-driven staffing agency that works for jobseekers and employers alike. We place people in a wide variety of roles with local employers in more than a dozen industries throughout Vermont, the Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts, and the Manchester and Seacoast regions of New Hampshire.

The jobseekers we place are reliable, committed, and tenacious. We get to know them as individuals, carefully match them to jobs, and offer support in a unique peer coaching model. Primarily individuals managing life transitions like recovery or incarceration, our workers are highly motivated and committed to their future success. Peer coaching sets them up for a successful career by supporting all aspects of their life outside employment.

Together, Working Fields partners with employers to give anyone the opportunity for a second chance.


Rhino Foods has been very fortunate to partner with Working Fields for the past several years. We firmly believe that everyone deserves a second, and sometimes a third chance and Mickey and his company have been instrumental in helping us find people that are looking for that chance. We are proud to have several of Mickey’s associates as full-time workers at Rhinos!

Everybody deserves a second chance. If I didn’t get one, then I’d be unemployed right now and on the street... It was huge to be able to talk to somebody at Working Fields, have them treat me like a human being, and connect me with companies who were willing to give me a chance.

Ted Jones, Associate
Working Fields
A field will grow into something beautiful if you work that field.

Ted's Story

“Everybody deserves a second chance. If I didn’t get one, then I’d be unemployed right now and on the street. I feel lucky I have an apartment; I have a job. JaniTech trusts me, they like me, and I’ve worked hard. It hasn’t been easy or problem-free, but nothing is.”Ted. . .
