Smart Works is a UK charity that provides high quality interview clothes, styling advice and interview training to women in need. We give women the confidence, the self-belief and the practical tools they require to succeed at interview and start a new chapter in their life.
At the core of our service is a two-hour appointment, during which time each woman receives a complete outfit of high quality clothes (theirs to keep) and dedicated one-to-one interview training. Our support really works, and we are incredibly proud that over one in two of clients that we are able to contact go on to get the job.
Volunteers are central to our success, as they deliver all aspects of our service, and as we look to support more unemployed women we are looking to recruit several more volunteers to join our volunteer community.
Wardrobe and Fundraising Volunteer
Our wardrobe and fundraising volunteer will keep the whole Smart Works system running smoothly by maintaining the highest possible professional standards in our dressing room, whilst also helping us to raise much need funds in order to be able to support more women in need across West Yorkshire. Main duties will include organising our wardrobe and stockroom, receiving and processing clothing donations and sorting stock for online and in person sales and events as part of our fundraising activity. The minimum commitment is one half day a week, preferably a Wednesday 10-2pm.
Location and Logistics
Our Wardrobe and Fundraising volunteer will be based at the centre but may also involve some homeworking.
Volunteering with Smart Works is rewarding and engaging. You will be trained in the different aspects of your role and you will have regular catch-ups with a staff member.
This position will be unpaid.
