Suits wanted by Suited for Success to help those who have been unemployed for a long time or have been homeless or released from prison to get back into employment.
First impressions are vital when it comes to a job interview. Research shows that it takes a potential employer just ‘nine seconds’ to make up their mind about a job applicant. Not being able to afford an interview suit or having the right interviewing skills can be a huge barrier to employment for many unemployed men and women.
Suited for Success is a registered UK charity based in Ladywood, Birmingham. They provide FREE high-quality interview clothes, styling and interview preparation skills for unemployed men and women who have a confirmed job interview. Gently worn suits and smart workwear are donated by professional men and women in corporate companies, law firms, banks, offices and businesses across the city. The suits are given to to clients ‘FREE of charge’ to wear to a job interview.
