Smart Works exist because of our volunteers.  All of the dressing and coaching is delivered by a skilled and trained team of empathetic, talented people who give their time to help a woman who is at a crucial moment in her life.  All of our wardrobes are immaculately organised and curated thanks to the dedication of our wardrobe team. 

Julia is one of our Dressing Volunteers, she supports clients who come to our North London centre, helping them to find the perfect outfit ahead of their interview.

“Smart Works is a cause very close to my heart and I love being a volunteer. It’s a wonderful community and a privilege to connect with so many brilliant women and hear their stories. Being able to provide a little help and support on their journey is fantastic.”

Interested in being a Smart Works volunteer? These are some of the roles we have.

Interview Coach

Our interview volunteers are senior managers, HR professionals or executive coaches who spend an hour one to one with each client so they understand what is expected at the interview, understand how to answer questions effectively and are aware of their own strengths.


Our dressing volunteers work with our clients to find the perfect outfit for their interview. They listen to our clients, understand how to make them look and feel fabulous, and have a great eye for fashion and style.

Wardrobe Volunteer

Our wardrobe volunteers have a meticulous attention to detail and passion for organisation, to ensure our wardrobes are beautifully organised and an inspiring space for our clients.

If you’re interested in becoming a volunteer, please check out your nearest Smart Works centre and see what opportunities they may have.
