Who we are

A Sydney-based social enterprise, Dress for Work provides quality clothing and job-readiness training for boys and men who have experienced setbacks, so that they can take back control of their lives. We supply tailor made suits, business attire, causal wear, trade wear and accessories in addition to one-on-one job readiness-training to prepare our clients for successful employment opportunities.

More than a suit

For our clients, a visit to our Bankstown boutique is transformative. Every individual receives a personal consultation with a stylist; a new suit, including shoes and accessories; and training to support their pathway to career success.

Our staff spend time with each client; for many, it is the first time in years they have been “seen”. The suit with which they leave our boutique is more than just a garment, it offers the client dignity and confidence and makes them far more likely to succeed on their path to a rewarding career.

Recently we have added a branch of service where we provide work and trade wear for people who have found work in labouring and the trade sector.

Our client stories


“Thank you so much for your feedback during my mock interview! It made me feel more confident when I got to my real interview and it must have showed – I got the job!”


“I came to Australia as a refugee eight months ago. I would never have been able to afford a suit like the one I received from Dress for Work. Thank you – I feel confident to face my next challenge – getting into the workforce and starting a new life.”


“For me, feeling confident means not leaving anything to chance. I really appreciated the interview prep you provided over Zoom in preparation for my real Zoom job interview!”


“I’ve been unemployed for a while but a new suit and career coaching helped me get back on my feet. Having a stable job is the most important thing to me and it has changed my life. Thank you.”
