National Express has helped a Birmingham charity dedicated to empowering unemployed individuals with confidence-boosting interview skills and clothing by donating a double-decker bus to support its new Suited for Success initiative.

The new ‘pop-up’ Suited for Success Employment Bus has been designed to offer the next step in the charity’s commitment to breaking down barriers to employment for unemployed people across the region. It will provide free interview skills coaching, employment days, essential employment preparation skills alongside the free provision of professional interview clothing for unemployed people in under-served neighbourhoods with high unemployment rates, making it easier for people to access the employment support they need.

Design features include laptop stations, interview coaching booths, a tea and coffee area, rails of suits and workwear and changing rooms where stylists will work with clients to help them pick the job interview-winning outfit ready to make that crucial first impression.
