Paula came to Dress for Success London in March 2013 after being out of work for four years. Her confidence was very low and she was struggling to cope financially. Paula was going for an interview for a job as a business administrator and she needed to look smart for the interview, as well as brush up on her interview skills. Paula was successful in her interview and she is delighted to be working again. This is how Paula described her experience at Dress for Success London: "I gained a huge amount of confidence to be surrounded by such lovely, confident and powerful women. Coming to Dress for Sucess gave me back the confidence I had lost in the last four years. It instilled faith into me that women are very supportive and that, surrounded by the right people, I could be a success again."
Paula is just one of over a hundred women who come to Dress for Success London every single month for help with interview clothes and confidence building. Over 50% of the women we support go on to secure employment within a month of their visit to Dress for Success London.
