Working Wardrobe has been set up to tackle another barrier into employment that so many men and women face today. That barrier is the lack of suitable clothing to wear in order to make a good first impression at the interview.
We want to give those people the best possible chance of making the best first impression to be successful in getting that job.
On referral, the customer will receive a one to one appointment in the town centre store, choosing an outfit and accessories to keep at no cost to them.
They'll also get final interview preparation advice. If they're successful in the interview, they can return to the store and get additional clothing and more importantly be given work support for as long as they need it.
This is so important as making that transition from benefits to work is often a difficult and troublesome period. They'll be assigned their own officer that will help with any issues that may prevent the client sustaining that employment- this support will be tailored to their needs.
