Smart Works Newcastle Clothing Drive

01 Sep 2018 to 28 Sep 2018

Donate work clothes to boost women in need of employment! 


Smart Works is a UK charity that provides high quality interview clothes, styling advice and interview training to women in need.  We give women the confidence, the self-belief and the practical tools they require to succeed at interview and start a new chapter of their life.

At the core of their service is a dressing and interview appointment at one of our Smart Works centres.  During her visit, each woman receives a high-quality interview outfit (theirs to keep) tailored to their taste and style by our Smart Works’ stylists.  This is followed by dedicated one-to-one interview training with an experienced recruitment, HR or coaching professional.

In order to meet the demand, Smart Works are always in need of donated clothes suitable for job interviews. 

This September we're launching a clothing drive so onsite staff can donate interview clothes and boost women in need. 

Drop donations off at The Hub before Friday 28th September.

We're looking for good quality interview appropriate clothing that will leave women feeling empowered to get a new role and a fresh start! This could be: 

    • Business suits
    • Skirts and trousers
    • Dresses
    • Tops and blouses
    • Handbags
    • Shoes
    • Jackets
    • Coats
    • New tights¬†and new bras
    • Accessories
    • Unloved party wear / gifts
    • New, unopened cosmetics and make-up, skincare, body and hair products
    • Shopping bags


      Currently need further donations of:

    • Size 16 + clothing
    • Slim leg trousers
    • Shoes (all sizes)
    • Handbags

Clothes should be in good condition and appropriate for a job interview.

Travelwise Week 16-22

16 Sep 2018 to 22 Sep 2018

16-22 September 2018

This year‚Äôs ACT Travelwise campaign is focusing on ‚Äėmultimodality‚Äô - the mixing of transport modes within the same journey or for different trips. Many of us instinctively opt for the same method of transport when moving around without necessarily examining the needs of the specific journey.¬†

As parking gets tighter and local congestion builds due to roadworks, I would like to you consider trying some different transport modes: cycle to or from a metro station, park your car up and cycle the last few miles or take the bus and get off a few stops early to stroll into work.

If you can’t get a bus direct from your local area, why not get a bus as close as you can and then get a lift from someone? You can find someone to car share with on the Quorum Liftshare Website. The Hub could also help you get a week’s free bus travel.

As well as providing health benefits, significant savings can be achieved through a multimodal approach, particularly when short journeys are completed through walking and cycling.

By introducing some sustainable transport modes into our journeys, not only can we have a positive impact on the environment, we may just find that we’re fitter and happier, with some extra spending money too!

For more travel information about all your travel options to and from Quorum click here 

Examples of ‚Äėmultimodality‚Äô

I live 15 miles away so I recently trialled a folding Brompton bike from The Cycle Centre in Byker cycle from Washington to Pelaw, jumped on the Metro and then cycled from Four Lane Ends to Quorum. I fell in love with the bike. It was so easy to ride and fold so I am planning to purchase a folding bike through my cycle to work scheme when the next window of opportunity arises. 

I have also parked at The Border Minstrel Pub at Newcastle Racecourse and cycled the last 3 miles on a Mobike. It only takes 13 minutes, clears my head before my working day and was nicer than waiting in queuing traffic on Slaters Lane.  

A colleague lives in the Tyne Valley and drops her son at Callerton Metro each morning. She recently started to leave her car in the park and ride car park there, paying £1 per day. Then cycles 6.5 miles into work in under 30 mins.   It’s a great way for her to do some daily exercise.

If you have any other examples of multimodality to share, or you are interested in finding out about:

  • the price and location of park and ride sites
  • the cost public transport tickets
  • the easiest/quickest/safest cycle routes
  • local bike hire schemes

Writing for an Online Audience – Free Introduction Course

11 Oct 2018

Writing for Online Poster

Do you adapt how you write depending on where it’s going? 
Or do you take more of a one size fits all approach?

 

In a digital-first world it’s important to tailor your website content to ensure it has the best chance of engaging your audience - whether this is to keep them informed or to encourage an action.  

Elliot McGrath is a content strategist at the full-service agency The Roundhouse. He is a member of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations and experienced in the effective communication of stories to a diverse range of audiences.  

In this interactive workshop he will explain why it is so important to adapt how you create content for your website by looking at online behaviours. 

The talk includes actionable takeaways around how to structure content, best practices for digital copywriting, and how to use different audience learning styles to enhance understanding and engagement.  

If you are looking to change to a digital-first strategy, or simply wanting to refine how you or your team create content, this workshop is for you.

8.30-11.00 on Thursday 11th October 
Includes free breakfast on arrival.

Book on Eventbrite here.
