Smart Works Greater Manchester – Referral Partner Virtual Open Day

We’re so pleased to be welcoming clients back to our Stockport centre for in-person appointments, alongside our virtual styling and coaching service.

Smart Works Greater Manchester are continuing to support and empower unemployed women from across Greater Manchester and the North West, on their journey to employment.

Women like Chez, who following a period unemployment came to Smart Works for interview styling and coaching support, as she took a change of direction in her career.

“I was nervous before, but the ladies were very friendly, approachable and extremely helpful.” – Chez, May 2021

From Monday, you can drop in to use our computers

Hi Everyone,

From next week, Monday 17 May you will once again be able to drop into our Newton Heath and Collyhurst Centres to use our computers!

Currently, you are only able to book a face to face appointment with a yes advisor.  However, we have listened to you and realise that some of you need access to a computer with internet and a printer, to complete some important tasks such as : 

  • Log in or create a Universal Credit account
  • Complete online job applications
  • Access emails to print off important ID documents for College, University or Work
  • Upload your CV to job search websites and job applications
  • Revise for tests e.g. CSCS\PTS​​

For now, there’ll be only a small number of computers available for clients to use independently without any need of advisor support.  So, it will be on a first come first served basis. Should you need to use a computer but need advisor support then please continue to book a face to face appointment instead.  

Please contact us if you need any further information: call 0161 720 4090 or email us at yesinfo@yesmanchester.co.uk
