Global market leading health and care technology company, Tunstall Healthcare has been collaborating with Sheffield-based charity, The Suit Works to help local people enter the working world.
Employees at Tunstall have donated hundreds of items of professional clothing to the independent charity, which provides business wear for people of all ages in search of a job.
According to Statista, there were approximately 1.3 million unemployed people in the UK in the three months to April 2022. The Suit Works, run by a small team of staff, trustees and volunteers, aims to help people seeking work by providing suitable clothing, styling sessions, interview skills training, and advice on body language and how to deal with nerves.
Commenting on the donation, Graham Brown, marketing director said: “Throughout June, the Tunstall Healthcare team has been collecting professional clothes and accessories to help provide people with the confidence they need to attend job interviews and be successful in securing a role. The Suit Works provides incredible services and we are proud to support the charity in its mission to help those in the community.”
Tunstall Healthcare is committed to working with local and national charitable organisations to support and improve the lives of thousands of people across the UK. In addition to its corporate initiatives, the organisation also encourages colleagues to support charities of their choice by fundraising and volunteering.
Ben Wright, trustee at The Suit Works said: “We are extremely grateful to Tunstall for joining us in collecting and providing good quality business wear for members of the community that are currently out of work. We believe that the work we do for our clients has a transformative effect and can significantly increase their self-esteem, and our service is an important step for clients to help them in breaking down barriers to employment.”
