A report by the Office of National Statistics has highlighted Birmingham as being the unemployment capital of the UK. People in the city experience a variety of barriers to getting into work including lack of skills, lack of confidence and personal barriers such as criminal records, mental health issues, homelessness, single parenting, substance recovery and more…
We prepare unemployed men and women for employment success many of whom have criminal convictions, are ex-military men and women, have a history of substance misuse or homeless to a single mother now wanting to get a job or a young person not in education or training.
Many of the people we see have faced many failures and personal challenges in their life but as soon as they put on a suit for an interview the transformation is incredible both physical and how they see themselves. There’s an immediate sense of HOPE for a better future.
More than just a suit
We not only dress and style people so they look the part for a job interview we also prepare people with one-to-one interview preparation, training workshops and presentations.
Doing more TOGETHER
The problem of unemployment is HUGE and as an individual, we can think our part is insignificant, but if everyone does a little we can make a HUGE difference TOGETHER.
Collaboration is at the heart of what we do at Suited for Success. We create a platform that brings people together to tackle the challenges of unemployment in our city. Suited for Success is an answer to a HUGE need in Birmingham addressing a barrier that many unemployed men and women in the city face when trying to moving into employment.
