Welcome to Smart Works Newcastle

Smart Works Newcastle opened in April 2018.

Based in Newcastle city centre, in our first year we assisted more than 290 women from across the North East, providing work outfits from our stock of high-quality clothes donated by the public, local businesses and retailers. With styling advice and interview training offered too, the support helps women feel more confident and increases their chances of securing jobs.

We are proud to report that over 1 in 2 of the clients we are able to contact go on to succeed at their job interview. We hope to support even more women in our second year.


How To Get Involved

How To Make An Appointment

The Smart Works service in Newcastle is open to any women who has a confirmed job interview for a paid position or a year-long apprenticeship.

Appointments to Smart Works in Newcastle are made by referral only. We work with many referral agencies, including Jobcentre Plus, work programme providers and charities working to support women back into employment. They refer women to us who need help with interview clothes and confidence – building in the run up to their interview.

Referring a woman to Smart Works Newcastle is done over the phone and only takes a few minutes. We take care of the rest.
