Welcome to Smart Works Reading
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 proud to say we are a volunteer led organisation. We have a team of over 75 highly skilled, fully trained, professional volunteers. In addition all our stock is donated through professional women & organisations or comes direct from our retail partners.
How to refer a client
If you’d like to refer a client for a Smart Works Reading appointment, our team would be delighted to help. Call us on 0118 959 4245 or email and we can get your client booked in or answer any questions you might have.
Alternatively email Reading@smartworks.org.uk and someone will respond.
“The coaching, I believe, made THE difference in my success in presenting to the interview panel. You went above and beyond to ensure I was in the best position to shine, and the dressing…wow! I do not treat myself, and this was a real luxury. Only now have I realised how much a difference one outfit can make.”⠀
