H&M and Ihateironing team up to support people back into employment
H&M and Ihateironing have teamed up to launch the ONE/SECOND/SUIT initiative, which aims to help people with back-to-work interviews following the Covid-19 pandemic by offering them free 24 hour suit and formal wear rental.
Job candidates are given a blazer, trousers, shirt, tie and a motivational red pocket square to help them make a good first impression.
Ihateironing will be taking care of the suit cleaning and will also assist with the collection and delivery of suits to customers.
The company has previously helped people back into employment through a similar project as part of the Brixton Library Project. With H&M, the initiative will be replicated on a national scale with people all over the UK being able to book free formal wear for interviews.
Matt Connelly, founder and chief executive of Ihateironing, said: “We understand clothes for an interview can be expensive and can create added pressure at an already stressful time, so knowing we are doing our own little bit to support people through unemployment, at such a critical time, is something we are excited to be a part of. Each day we help thousands of our customers look their best and to be able to extend this to jobseekers with the support of H&M is just fantastic. “
