“I felt a million dollars. I was treated with respect. I instantly felt my confidence increase by a hundred fold.” – Smart Works Client

What is Smart Works?

Smart Works is a UK wide charity run by women, for women. We empower our clients to enter the workplace through our free, personalised dressing and coaching service.

Is this service for me?

Yes! If you are a woman who is unemployed or on a zero-hour contract, our service is for you. We are here to support all women, including transgender women, and non-binary people who feel their gender expression connects with the Smart Works service and wardrobe.

We support a range of clients – from those who are recently unemployed, to those who need help preparing for their first ever interview.

What support is available to me?

We use the power of high-quality clothing and one-to-one coaching to empower all women into employment. Your appointment can be delivered in person at one of our centres, or virtually.

Got an interview coming up? Let us help you get the job with our Clothing and Coaching service.

In just 2 hours, our team will empower you with the confidence and skills to succeed at your interview. Your appointment will include:

  • 1 hour with our incredible dressers to find your free, high-quality interview outfit that is yours to keep.
  • 1 hour with our expert interview coach focusing on how to highlight your skills and present the best version of yourself at interview. You will also receive a free interview guide to take home, where you can find additional advice on how to succeed.

After your appointment, we will wave you goodbye and keep our fingers crossed. Once you’ve secured a role, you can give us a call back to book in your second dressing, where you will receive a capsule work wardrobe to keep you going until your first pay check.

“It was the most effective interview coaching I have ever experienced. I left feeling so encouraged and like I could go into the interview and ace it – which I did!” – Smart Works Client
