Smart Works Greater Manchester opened in June 2015 and since then we have delivered over 3000 appointments, supporting over 2500 unemployed women.

Over 70% have gone on to get a job. 

Welcome to Smart Works Greater Manchester.

We support women from across all Greater Manchester boroughs and the wider North West and from a range of different backgrounds and age groups, into employment by providing coaching so they feel more confident and start believing in their own ability to succeed.

We also provide high-quality interview-appropriate clothing, shoes and accessories (theirs to keep) to wear for their job interview and high-quality work-appropriate clothing, shoes and accessories when they get the job.

The time our clients spend with us can be transformative.  We give women the confidence, the self-belief and the practical tools they require to succeed in securing a job and start a new chapter in their life.

We are a small but passionate team and we’re supported by a brilliant team of skilled volunteers who help deliver the service through both in-person and remote appointments.
