“I love volunteering at Smart Works Leeds. Being part of helping women to build their confidence and be as well prepared as possible for interview and the first weeks at work is a real privilege and always puts a smile on my face.”
There are four main areas that we need volunteers to help at Smart Works Leeds.
Our dressing volunteers have got an eye for style. They help our clients to find the perfect outfit for their interview. We’re always looking for people who have brilliant people skills, a love of fashion and and plenty of patience.
Ideally you’d be able to volunteer one day of your team each week.
Interview volunteers help clients prepare for their interview by focusing on their skills, their confidence and their presentation. You will need a background in HR, recruitment or senior management to join this programme.
We look for people who can commit to at least one day a month.
Our Wardrobe volunteers ensure that our dressing room is immaculate, our fundraising events are incredible and, most importantly, that every Smart Works client leaves her dressing appointment feeling confident about her upcoming interview.
If you are highly organised, colour coordinate your wardrobe, love clothes and have lots of energy this is the role for you.
We look for people to volunteer two days per month.
Our fundraising volunteers will be getting involved in all sorts, from helping us organise our annual cycling challenge to coming up with ideas for original events that our supporters will love.
This is a more flexible role and we can discuss what amount of time you’re able to donate.
Get in touch
If you’re interested in becoming a volunteer we would love to hear from you. There isn’t one type of person who volunteers at Smart Works and we’re always looking for diversity of thought and experience, if you have a passion for empowering women and believe that you have what it takes to make a difference we want to hear from you.
Please bear with us, we take our volunteer recruitment very seriously and it might take a little while for one of the team to get back to you.
