WORCESTER-based regional law firm Harrison Clark Rickerbys have been supporting a charity that supports people during their interviews.
The Suited for Success initiative collects good quality, gently worn work clothes and accessories for men and women, so that they have the right clothing for job interviews.
The charity also offers advice on interview techniques at its Hockley headquarters in Birmingham.
Harpreet Kaur, trainee solicitor at Harrison Clark Rickerbys who organised the firm’s collections along with colleagues including Rachael Wheeler said: “Having the right clothes to wear for a job interview is not just about making the right impression, it is also a matter of confidence – if you are dressed for work, you feel more professional and that affects your approach to the interview.
“We were very pleased with the response. We collected six boxes and bags of work clothes, and have passed them on to Suited for Success, where they will make a real difference to people’s chances of employment.”
Patricia White, from the charity, said: “The fantastic donations will really help – the kind support from Harrison Clark Rickerbys is really valuable to us - without it, our work would not be possible.”
Harrison Clark Rickerbys has 450 staff and partners based at offices in Worcester, Hereford, Cheltenham, the Wye Valley, Birmingham and the Thames Valley, who provide various legal services.
