Working Wardrobe is a new personal styling and mentoring service to support Oldham residents with job interviews

The shop is run by Oldham Council, via the Get Oldham Working programme – a service which helps people find work and training opportunities.

Working Wardrobe will be based at Shop 11, Tommyfield Market, Albion Street in Oldham Town Centre and open Monday to Friday by appointment.

How does it work

Clients are referred to Working Wardrobe via Get Oldham Working for an appointment.

At the appointment, you will receive a full outfit of your choice for your interview and one-to-one support to help you prepare and feel confident.

Once you’ve secured a job, we can provide additional work clothes to get you ready for your new role.

Bookings are available from 1pm on 21 March 2022
