Smart Works Reading

# A service to support women with a job interview to get the job. Smart Works Reading opened in October 2015 with a vision of bringing the dressing and interview coaching service to women within the Thames Valley. Smart Works Reading is thriving, opening five days a week (4 days for client appointments), and delivering over 350 appointments in the last year. We are incredibly proud to report that in Reading our success rate remains high with over 1 in 2 of our clients going on to succeed at their job interview. We help women to feel confident, look fabulous, succeed at their job interview and move forward with their life. Over 60% of the clients we see go on to get the job. #How To Make An Appointment The service at Smart Works Reading is open to anyone who identifies as a woman in the Thames Valley area who has a confirmed job interview for a paid position, apprenticeship, internship or voluntary work.
