Combine your love of fashion and impressive people skills in our Volunteer Dresser role.


About the role

Stylist/Dresser’s work with clients to find the right clothes for their interview. Our clients range from ages 16 to 66+ so it is important to select an outfit that reflects a women’s personal style, preferences, body type and the specific job role. Each client that comes to Smart Works will leave with a complete interview outfit, including shoes, handbag, coat and accessories. As we now offer a virtual service we will also require stylists to put clothing parcels together to send out to clients who cannot get to us in person.

As we often receive large donations of clothing our stylists are best placed to know what is needed in our dressing room so sorting, steaming and merchandising the donations is also part of the stylist’s role.  We sell clothing online and pop-up shops to generate an income for our service.  We hope that stylists can get involved in listing clothing and curating sale stock.


To support Smart Works in a styling role you will need:

  • an eye for style, interest in clothing and knows what suits different body types
  • lots of patience and empathy
  • the ability to communicate with women of different ages and backgrounds
  • fantastic people skills and lots of energy
  • Strong understanding of confidentiality
  • To be a team player as you will be volunteering within a small, close knit team


We ask that you are able to commit one full day a month to volunteering in our city centre office.  There will be opportunities to volunteer out of the office, at job fairs, networking events, clothing sales and much more.
