There are five main volunteer roles at Smart Works
Dressing volunteers help our clients find the right clothes for their interview. To be a good dressing volunteer you need an eye for style, great people skills and plenty of patience. The minimum commitment is one day per month.
“The service Smart Works offers is so inspiring, Confidence blossoms most when you receive support, it’s just taking that first step, the personal coaching support and a new outfit can make such a difference.” – Analisa, Dressing Volunteer
Interview volunteers help clients prepare for their interview by focusing on their skills, their confidence and their presentation. You will need a background in HR, recruitment or senior management to join this programme. The minimum commitment is one day per month.
“So often I meet women who don’t recognise the skills that they have gained throughout their life. To work with them and see their confidence and self esteem grow in order to move forward with their lives is a joy and a privilege” – Sylvia, Interview Volunteer
Admin volunteers help in the office by answering phones, greeting clients, inputting data, filing and helping with other office duties. You need excellent customer service skills and general office skills. The minimum commitment is one day per week.
“What I love most about volunteering is knowing that I’ve been a part of someone’s journey into employment. Getting a job is a huge part of life and to have helped contribute to someone’s success is so rewarding.” – Caitlin, Admin Volunteer
