Smart Works Newcastle featured in North East Times Magazine

We are absolutely delighted to be featured in North East Times Magazine Women’s Issue, which shines a light on some of the amazing women who are achieving great things in our region – spanning all levels and sectors.

The issue includes articles on Sara Davies MBE, Kim McGuinness, Kelly Green, Sally Blake, Sally Hart, Sophie Milliken, Leah Heatley, Alexandra Blenkinsop and many more incredible women.

Our Chair, Helen Sinclair, spoke to NE Times editor Alison Cowie about establishing Smart Works in the North East, reflections on the success of our first year and what to expect from Smart Works Newcastle in the future.

“I remember being in the changing room of a department store with my mum. We had found a suit that I could wear for the interviews I had lined up, and went through our purses to work out whether we had enough money between us to buy it. We managed that day, but there are lots of women who don’t have people they can ask what happens in an interview or to support them with clothing. When I found out about Smart Works I thought that would have been so useful to me back then. It made perfect sense.”
