Smart Works is a national charity providing interview styling advice, interview clothes and interview coaching for women who are currently unemployed and have confirmed job interviews.
Smart Works Birmingham launched in summer 2016. Based in Northfield, we offer a city-wide service.
Women are referred to us for a two hour appointment: one hour with our Volunteer Dressers and another hour with our Volunteer Interview Coach.
We are looking for Volunteer Dressers – those with excellent people skills and a passion for fashion – to deliver our styling and dressing service. Volunteers are vital to the running of Smart Works Birmingham. We are looking for reliable, confident women who are non-judgemental, are compassionate, have excellent listening skills, the ability to boost the confidence of women and who are passionate about empowering women.
You don’t have to work in fashion but it’s important that you have an eye for style as you as the stylist would be choosing outfits for our clients from our dressing room. The service is delivered as a personal shopping experience – a pampering session for our clients to help them feel good about themselves.
We are looking for a long-term commitment and a minimum of one day a month, more days are available if you can help out more regularly. We have opportunities for those looking to become Volunteer Dressers on Thursdays and Fridays only and we’re open Thursdays 10am – 4pm and Fridays 10am – 3pm.
If you’re interested in this opportunity, please send your CV and covering letter to Joanne at firstname.lastname@example.org
