DRESSED FOR SUCCESS
CHARITY THAT BELIEVES FIRST IMPRESSIONS COUNT
Suited for Success brings together the corporate, voluntary, statutory and charity organisations in Birmingham to practically tackle the barriers of unemployment men and women in our city face on their journey to employment...
The group recognised that unemployment is a major issue that needs tackling so they explored ideas around unemployment, confidence and the need for a decent outfit for a job interview conundrum and realised that they could do something about it.
Suited for Success is based in Ladywood, an inner-city constituency of Birmingham supporting unemployed men and women on their journey back to employment. People are referred to the centre through a variety of referral frontline support agencies including: Job centres, work programmes, job clubs and debt advice agencies.
Referred men and women are given a compete suit or smart clothing outfit so they feel more confident and start believing in their own ability to succeed in their job interview. During the appointment clients are also encouraged with helpful tips and advice to help them not succeed their interview. If the client is successful in the getting the job they can come back to us to receive a few more items of mix and match clothes so they can look the part in the first few weeks of their new job.
Clements and Church have chosen to Support Suited For Success as We also believe that First Impressions Count, there is nothing like tailoring to make you stand taller and feel more confident, as such we have donated a collection of formal shirts for job candidates to benefit from.
'100 shirts' that's INCREDIBLE!!! We can't thank you enough for the donation from Clements and Church such amazing generousity that will go such a long way to support unemployed men into employment. Patricia White
