More than just dresses

Dress for Success Wellington is expanding its extremely popular Breakfast Club to Lower Hutt.

Dress for Success supports women who are seeking to enter or return to the workplace by supporting them with work-appropriate clothing, styling advice, skills support and interview experience.

Dress for Success Executive Manager Leonie Smiley says “not many people know we provide more than just clothing and styling advice.

“Our vision is ‘every woman succeeding’, and in today’s highly competitive job market, the Breakfast Club offers women who are actively seeking work the tools and skills to enhance their opportunities to gain employment”.

The six week course covers CV writing, presentation skills and interview preparation, including tips, techniques and role plays with real-life employers.

Dress for Success Wellington’s Lower Hutt Breakfast Club will be run weekly from 8.30 – 9.30am Wednesday May 7 to June 11 in conjunction with Hutt City Library community development staff.

By working together with the libraries, the programme receives huge community involvement and support. Dress for Success has successfully run two programmes in Upper Hutt, and there is already a wait list for a third.

Dress for Success Wellington already runs Breakfast Club programmes in Wellington and hopes to expand the programme into Porirua in September.

Dress for Success also provides a careers centre which participants in the Breakfast Club and Dress for Success clients can use, comprising work desks, computers and phones to help them find work, to network and to gain confidence.
