Donate your leftover currency to Smart Works

Smart Works is a UK charity that provides high quality interview clothes and interview training to unemployed women in need

Smart Works harness the power of clothes and confidence to allow a woman to be her best at a crucial moment in her life, giving her the confidence, the self-belief and the practical tools required to succeed at an interview and transform her life.

Women are referred to Smart Works from organisations such as job centres, work programmes, prisons, care homes, homeless shelters and mental health charities. Half of the clients have been unsuccessful in over 20 applications. A quarter have been turned down from over 50 jobs. All are suffering from a lack of confidence in their own abilities.

The tangible impact the charities service has on a woman’s confidence is something Smart Works has the privilege to witness every day

The magic begins when she enters the dressing room and is styled into her interview outfit, which is hers to keep, by trained volunteers. She looks in the mirror and sees a new and impressive version of herself. This is followed by one-to-one interview coaching, after which 72% of Smart Works clients go on to get the job.
