Since opening in 2018, Smart Works Newcastle has supported over 1000 women into employment. With 72% getting the job.


Welcome to Smart Works Newcastle

We support North East women into employment through the power of high quality interview clothing and coaching.

A two hour appointment at Smart Works Newcastle can give women the confidence, to fulfil their potential, get the job, and transform the trajectory of their lives.

Our service can be accessed by all women who are unemployed, aged 16+ and based in the North East.

We operate on a referral basis, partnering with organisations and charities to provide our services to women with upcoming interviews, as well as offering one-to-one career coaching to any woman who can benefit from it.

The centre is run by a close-knit staff team of 5 who are supported by over 40 dedicated volunteers and trustees.



“Smart Works made me feel absolutely amazing.

I felt as though I could conquer the world. The feeling is still with me now.

Sometimes the little things have the most amazing and great long lasting effect.

I feel so confident from the experience.

Thank you so much.”
