The Job-Ready Shop

Our Job-Ready shop, sponsored by Next, is stocked with brand new smart suits, skirts, shirts and shoes to give our service users the confidence to get back into work.

 

We reward our service users when they have achieved a milestone with us. This might be gaining a qualification, securing a work placement,  securing a job interview, or achieving a Changing Life Moment which can be anything from improving confidence to learning a new skill. Choosing new smart clothes from the Job-Ready shop fills our servicer users with pride and confidence, and makes a great impression to prospective employers.

 

Daniel_BTSWDaniel’s Story

Daniel had an important meeting with a site manager to secure premises for his new barber business. However, he didn’t have any smart clothes to wear. Daniel was able to pick out a shirt, tie, trousers and shoes for his meeting which made him feel more confident and professional. To his delight, Daniel was successful in securing new premises and is busy setting up his new business.

 

Daniel said; “I’ve got the biggest smile on my face, I haven’t been this happy in weeks”.
