Open a Smart Works

At Smart Works, we have a very successful and simple business model that we know works.  We are now looking for people to lead our expansion outside of London in areas of need.

We want dynamic, entrepreneurial and inspiring individuals who are interested in leading a bid for their home city.  We are particularly focused on major urban areas, where there is the unemployment, job potential and volunteer workforce to deliver the Smart Works model, and have identified some areas where we believe the model is particularly appropriate.  We are however always interested to hear from people with a passion for what we do.

Each new Smart Works that opens is part of the Smart Works family, but operate as its own charity, with its own board responsible for local issues.  Collaboration is at the heart of our model.  As well as advice, support and guidance, we also share the Smart Works brand, service design and national partnerships.

If you have the vision, time and passion to run a Smart Works, we cannot promise that it will be easy, but we can promise it will be the most fulfilling decision you make.

“Bringing Smart Works to Manchester has been quite an experience.  I’ve had to wear many different hats – from chief fundraiser, communications director, ambassador, to answering the phone, taking bookings, dressing clients and steaming clothes.  It has been incredibly hard work, but also great fun made worthwhile through moments of pure inspiration and joy when we see our clients succeed.”
