We dress more than 1,000 women a year in high quality clothes donated by retailers and professional women. Following a consultation with Dress For Success, one in two women go on to succeed at their interview and are keen to spread awareness of our work by taking Dress For Success on tour with McArthurGlen – to help inspire other women across the UK.”
During the week Yolk Recruitment's Mohammed Ahmed will be running workshops aimed at getting the long term unemployed back into work. Mo already runs several successful workshops inCardiff and will be offering his expertise in this field during Workwear Week. "I strongly believe in the education of jobseekers to help them get back into work." says Mohammed Ahmed, Yolk IT Divisional Manager. "One of the reasons for my successes has been the advice I have received from others over the years. I have been fortunate that some amazing people took the time to share their knowledge and experience with me and I was taught to give back by sharing this knowledge with others."
