Our Staff

  • Kate Stephens is CEO of Smart Works, leading our mission to roll out nationwide and help ever more women into employment.  Based in London, Kate runs our HQ operations and oversees our long-established London service, ensuring it remains best-in-class and that we share our learnings across the Smart Works family.  Kate combines senior private sector experience with a passion for the entrepreneurial, dynamic and inspirational charity sector, learnt first as Trustee, Vice Chair and then Chair of a leading family charity and now as CEO of Smart Works.

“Smart Works is a brilliantly simple and practical concept that works.  After their visit, well over half of the women we contact go on to get the job.  Seeing the service in action every day is a great privilege and an inspiration to all of us who work here.  We are passionate about improving the lives of women, and want to take the Smart Works service to as many women as we can across the UK.  We want to engage inspirational women who might be willing to bring Smart Works to their home city.  And we want to ensure that every single woman who comes to Smart Works leaves with a renewed sense of her own abilities, looking and feel great, and ready to succeed at her job interview.”
