Charity shops across the UK are working towards a new initiative of helping people find clothing for job interviews. 650 charity shops across the UK will now have a dedicated ‘dress to impress’ section, where they will have smart and formal clothes specifically put out for job interviews and important meetings in mind.
Staff in these stores will also be able to advise customers on which items to choose for interviews and career prospects, and each of these items will be under £10 to ensure they are affordable for everyone.
