Use your eye for style to help our clients find the right clothes for their job interviews
Learning support / Mentoring volunteers needed for Smart Works Reading in RG1
Smart Works is a UK charity that is focussed on helping out-of-work women on low incomes get back into the workforce. We provide interview coaching, high quality interview clothes and styling advice.
We are seeking female volunteers to help our clients find the right clothes for their interview from our extensive collection. Working in pairs you will use your eye for style, great people skills and patience to help clients select an interview outfit they are comfortable with, boosting their confidence and helping them to make that all important first impression.
Training will be provided alongside a procedure to follow. However, every client is different and volunteers are encouraged to work collaboratively and creatively with clients to help them find their ‘style’.
Dressing Volunteers play a vital role in our goal to help women feel confident, look fabulous, succeed at their job interview and move on with their life.
