Welcome to Smart Works Newcastle

We support North East women into employment through interview clothing and coaching.

A two hour appointment at Smart Works Newcastle can give women the confidence, the self-belief and the practical tools they require to succeed at interview and start a new chapter of their life.

Our service can be accessed by anyone who identifies as female, is unemployed and who is based in the North East (we support women across the region from Middlesbrough to Berwick).

The centre is run by our dedicated staff team who are supported by a close knit group of highly skilled volunteers and trustees, passionate about making sure you have the best experience when you visit us.

We are looking for donations of specific types of clothing. Find out what we are after here!
