Dress for Success is in dire need of volunteers for our flagship clothing program. Volunteers in our "suiting" program are called Wardrobe Consultants and they work 1-on-1 with women who are in need of clothing for interviews or new employment opportunities. Wardrobe Consultants help women find the right outfits for them either in-person or virtually (depending on what the client chooses). All volunteers will be working in our boutique. Volunteer shifts are 2.5 hours long. We have implemented COVID safety measures to ensure physical distancing as much as possible as well as PPE and enhanced cleaning.

No specific skills/experience is required - only a desire to help women find outfits and personal care products that make them feel professional and confident for their new endeavours! Specific and detailed training will be provided before starting in the role.

A level 2 police check is required.
