Smart Works Edinburgh provides styling advice, interview clothes and interview training to out-of-work women. We help them look amazing and feel confident enough to succeed at their job interview, changing the direction of their lives.

Our highly successful, two hour core dressing and interview preparation service achieves consistently high levels of success for our clients, and is at the heart of everything we do.

 In the dressing session, with the advice and expertise of our volunteer stylists, each client is offered an excellent selection of high quality clothing to wear for their interview.  The clothes we choose to wear have a huge impact on how we are perceived by others, particularly when meeting people for the first time. Selecting what to wear for a job interview is a critical element of our non-verbal communication, and can be a huge influence on the interviewer when they are making a decision on whom to employ.

We make sure that our clients look fabulous, feel comfortable in the clothes they have chosen, and that they have everything they need, from a winter coat to a pair of tights.

Following the dressing session, our highly skilled volunteer interview coaches work one-to-one with each client in a compassionate and supportive way.  The interview session focuses on increasing the awareness of her own strengths, answering questions effectively and understanding what is expected of them at interview.

Our interview volunteers are all senior managers, HR professional or executive coaches and in a focused session, ahead of a job interview, can have a significant impact on our clients, giving them the confidence to succeed.
