JennyHow to refer your Clients

Fitted for Work are a referral based service, which means we receive referrals from a diverse range of service providers, including – but not restricted to – Job Services Agencies, Disability Employment Services, Migrant and Refugee Settlement Services, Prisons, Domestic Violence and Homelessness Services.

If you are currently assisting someone you believe could benefit Fitted for Works services, you can make a referral and book an appointment for them to attend our Personal Outfitting Service and our Job Preparation Hub.

Our program and workshop dates fluctuate, so our Fitted for Work team will help your client book into our upcoming programs and workshops when they attend their first appointment.

If this is your first time making a referral to Fitted for Work, please give us a call on 03 9662 4289 so that we can step you through the set up process and answer any questions you have.

For returning referral partners, appointments can be made by using our online booking service.

Please note that agencies receiving government funding will be asked to make a fixed contribution per referral.


Who can attend a Fitted for Work appointment?

At Fitted for Work, we understand that every woman and every journey is different. Our services are designed and tailored to assist anyone who identifies as a woman who is experiencing disadvantage. This may include, but is not limited to, women exiting a domestic violence situation, women experiencing homelessness, women recently released from prison, refugee and recently migrated women, older women, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women, transgender women, women with a disability, single mothers and culturally and linguistically diverse women.

We assist women at every stage of their employment journey. Some women are looking for their first role, some are returning to work after a career break and others already have some employment but need help transitioning into a more suitable role. Our tailored services are designed to meet clients where they are at and help them achieve their employment goals.

"Many have cited Fitted For Work as the single most supportive experience in their search for work. In particular, the warmth of your volunteers is the key that opened the door to their confidence. It may not be evident to your volunteers, but this little boost is often all that it takes to get an applicant over the line. We give them the documents and the blurb, but it is you who give them the flair and the self-belief."
Literally hundreds of our women have had their lives turned around by your service over the last few years.

"After being dressed by Fitted for Work, one of my job seekers, Joan came directly to my office to show me all the nice clothes and accessories she’d been given. Although lots of progress had been made on a career level, it was the first time I’d seen such a glow of pride and self-confidence in her eyes. She said the volunteers were very kind and caring and made her feel very comfortable during the whole process. Being a woman myself, I can fully understand what my client was feeling and how important it was for her to feel well-presented and proud of her appearance. My client is attending an interview this afternoon. Although it can be difficult to predict how a job interview will unfold, I’m positive she’ll feel more optimistic and pleased about her appearance at the interview. It has certainly boosted her self-esteem and confidence.  Thanks Fitted for Work!"
