We are a small but passionate team here at Smart Works Birmingham and our greatest love is seeing our clients get the job. The everyday running of the centre is overseen by Joanne and Ann, our centre managers.

We help women in need to get into paid employment and change their lives for the good. Women are referred by referral partners such as the DWP and then attend our centre once they have a confirmed job interview. We provide them with an interview outfit, styled for them and theirs to keep, followed by interview coaching.

Alongside our centre managers are a team of 40 incredible volunteers who are all extremely passionate about helping our clients get that job.

We have supported over 1,500 women before their job interviews and delivered over 1,900 appointments. We are so proud that 67% of the women we’ve supported have gone on to get the job.
