About us

Smart Works Edinburgh is the Scottish extension of the charity Smart Works, a non-profit organisation. Since opening in 2014, we have provided 1,289 unemployed women with free high-quality interview clothing and expert-led coaching services to help them to be successful in their upcoming job interview.

Before Covid-19, we carried out our service in-person in our Edinburgh office. When the pandemic hit, we swiftly adapted our entire charity model into a virtual service, providing our interview training and career coaching services via Zoom and sending bespoke clothing parcels in the post. In doing so, we have been able to extend our services and support to unemployed women all over Scotland.

With growing national demand, we've now made our virtual service permanent, running it alongside our in-person service to ensure maximum access and reach. We are proud to say that 68% of our clients go on to get a job within one month of their appointment with us.
