Real Estate Turns out to Support Disadvantaged Women

Melbourne real estate agents turned out to support Fitted for Work - a not for profit organisation helping disadvantaged women find work and gain independence.

The event was arranged by Melbourne specialist real estate recruiter, Buckmaster Hawkey.

Since 2005, Fitted for Work has transformed the lives of more than 18,000 women by providing them with business clothing, interview training, mentoring, career resilience and transition to work programs.

Three quarters of the women they assist find work within three months.

Speaking on the night, Buckmaster Hawkey Director, Jeanette Hockney, said, “We first began supporting Fitted for Work a year ago - using our skills in recruitment and human resources.”

“Our team helps Fitted for Work with their workshops, assisting clients on a one on one basis with their challenges like applying for jobs, using social media and understanding how to conduct themselves in interviews.”

“We also provide a ‘work experience for women - including migrants and refugees who need to gain work experience in Australia.”

Buckmaster Hawkey would like to thank our sponsors; personal image consultant Briony Croft, leading real estate software Console and the Melbourne Maserati Showroom.
