Smart Works Leeds opened in November 2019.  We support women from a range of different backgrounds and age groups back into employment by providing coaching so they feel more confident and start believing in their own ability to succeed.

We also provide high-quality  interview-appropriate clothing, shoes and accessories (theirs to keep) to wear for their job interview, and high-quality work-appropriate clothing, shoes and accessories when they get the job.

The time our clients spend with us can be transformative. We give women the confidence, the self-belief and the practical tools they require to succeed in securing a job and start a new chapter in their life.

We are a small but passionate team and we’re supported by a brilliant team of skilled volunteers who help deliver the service.

“When I was made redundant last September, it left me feeling useless and unwanted.  Since then, I have lost count how many jobs I have applied for.  I have received rejection emails for each one.  

Receiving the package today and trying on the beautiful clothes has given me quite a boost.

I think your charity is marvelous in what it does for unemployed women.”
