I am a volunteer stylist at Smart Works Greater Manchester.

Smart Works purpose is "to prepare women for interviews by giving them styling advice, interview training and high quality work-appropriate outfits to help ensure that they are successful in getting the job."

As a Team of Volunteer Dressers we spend time with each woman before their styling session to get to know them and the job they have applied for and to understand their own personal style.

The biggest buzz for me is seeing the beautiful smiles from women who leave their bespoke one hour personal styling session feeling and looking so much more confident and empowered. Holding their heads high. It's such a wonderful powerful experience and the positive vibes rub off on me so it's a win/win!
