About Smart Works

Smart Works is a dynamic, high profile and fast-growing volunteer-led UK charity that styles and coaches unemployed women for success at job interview. Voted Social Action Charity of the Year, the Smart Works service is delivered in London and through licensees in Greater Manchester, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Newcastle and the Thames Valley.

The licensees are independent charities and companies run by their own Boards with the ‘headquarters’ Smart Works Charity as the sole member.

At each centre, more than one in two of the women seen go on to succeed at their interview. We are passionate about taking this service across the UK to help as many women as we can, and committed to delivering a service that is transformational, high-impact and inspirational.
