Smart Blokes

Smart Blokes offers a dressing and coaching program to help men gain employment. The aim is to increase our clients’ preparedness and confidence to face their job interview and succeed in gaining employment.

Assisting clients to find long-term employment is our goal. To do this, we will:

■ dress them in a smart outfit suitable for an interview or work 

■ provide one-on-one coaching and advice on interview skill techniques

■ provide workshops to help build their personal and work-related skills

■ provide post- employment guidance

Men can be referred by job placement agencies and community support organisations, or can come to us directly if they need help. Each client will receive at least one suitable outfit. Our dressing and coaching services are located at 27 Ross Smith Avenue East, Frankston. Our services are provided free to clients though Job Active Providers may be charged a fee for service for referred clients.
