The Suited & Booted Centre Limited helps vulnerable, unemployed and low-income men into employment by providing interview clothing and interview advice. The charity’s clients may be struggling and in need of support, both financial and practical. They may not have the means to wear suitable clothes to ‘look the part’ and therefore are unable to give themselves the best possible chance at a job interview. Suited & Booted gives clients donated interview clothing and guides them through the process of a job interview.
