The Women into Work Jobs Fair 💙

This year, we’re making it our mission to bring even more women through our doors and into employment, helping us achieve our ambitious goal of supporting 10,000 women annually by 2025.

There are thousands of women in Croydon and the surrounding boroughs who we have the tools to empower and reconnect with their potential. So last week, we hosted our first ever Women into Work jobs fair in London at Croydon Town Hall.

The event was a significant step change for our charity as it allowed us to directly connect over 300 job-seeking women with potential London-Living-Wage employers from a variety sectors.

In addition to facilitating hundreds of meaningful connections, our expert volunteer coaches offered free, on-site, one-to-one coaching sessions to ensure every woman who came to visit left feeling empowered and ready to conquer their job search.

We strongly believe that women are one of the greatest assets to our economy, but as highlighted in our 2023 Unemployment Index, the journey to employment is not getting easier. At Smart Works we’re dedicated to bridging the gap between women and employment and we hope that our Women Into Work fair has made this journey a little bit easier.
