Smart Works Reading’s free service is currently being delivered remotely either through a video link or telephone call.
Claire Lawley, Service Delivery Manager, said:
It’s the same hour-long, tailored 1-2-1 session with one of our HR professional volunteers. We’re still providing free interview clothes that are especially selected to meet the client’s requirements. These are posted from our London office direct to clients’ homes.
We’ve been working on materials, including guides and videos, to help clients adapt to video or phone interviews and to support them while they are job hunting during lockdown.
We are planning a phased re-opening of our offices from next month – please keep an eye on our social media and website for more info.
Please call or email us when you want to refer a client on to us. We will organise the remote interview coaching session and clothing delivery with them. We’ve simplified our paperwork so that the client can complete it online or by email.
