Target Locations

The Smart Works service is currently running in seven locations across the UK: North London, West London, Edinburgh, Greater Manchester, Reading, Newcastle and Birmingham.

Smart Works started in North London, which is still our HQ and our busiest location.  We opened a second centre in London in November 2013. We then set up the Smart Works model so that we could work in partnership with people on the ground in different cities around the UK.

Smart Works Edinburgh opened in 2014, Manchester and Reading in 2015, Birmingham in 2016 and Newcastle in 2018. Smart Works Leeds will be opening in Autumn 2019. Each centre works with clients, volunteers and supporters in their own region to bring the Smart Works service to life.  All of us are united by a shared mission, a desire to collaborate and share best practice and a commitment to bringing the very best quality service to every client we see.

In our last financial year, at every location where a Smart Works operates, over one in two of the women we were able to contact went on to succeed at her job interview.

Open a Smart Works

It is our mission to bring the Smart Works service to new areas of the UK in 2019. We have identified a need in the cities of Cardiff, Oxford and  Portsmouth.  We particularly want to hear from you if you are based in or around one of those cities.
