​Think you need prove you got a job interview and getting jsa or another benefit imo it's a great offer for a company to do beats the kick in the teeth the government provide if you find yourself unemployed

I can't afford to shop in Timpson but this is a genuinely great gesture. Well done Mr. T. (_;)

I wouldn't trust them to do it paid never mind for free.

James Timpson is an excellent guy I even saw once that he was taking on people who had criminal pasts who were trying to start afresh where their criminal records were holding them back from getting a job.

Sounds like a stand up CEO, hard to find any of them nowadays

Nice touch, hopefully also applies for trekkie bottoms and string vests for 'normal' job interviews as well

Why do some people insist on putting down every single offer - do they have a problem with genuine people actually getting something for free?

Well said

Decent offer, but from extensive experience, half the staff at timpsons are useless ****.

They are a decent company. I lost one of spring pins from my watch - and they gave me one for free. Admittedly, it didn't cost them much, but there aren't many companies who would have done the same.

They employ a lot of ex offenders and like to give people another chance. Seems like a genuine offer of help so eff the begrudgers.

Vote Hot. They have been doing this for a while so it's not a short term gimmick. I also echo what others say about the employment of ex offenders who are trying to integrate.

handy if you need to get your suit dry cleaned before court. HEAT.

I think you used that when I posted this deal (_;)

"You don’t need a voucher to receive this support just pop into your local Timpson and have a chat with our colleagues who will make sure that you’re off to a genuine interview. So long as the items you bring in are for a genuine job interview we’ll help you on your way"

Good Idea but personally I rather not have to go into Timpson and discuss my personal business with their Employees. Imagine being interrogated by some over zealous manager in front of other customers just to get your suit washed

What a kind gesture, how many other companies would even consider helping the unemployed get a leg up in these worrying times.
All the sarky answers given above need to experience unemployment before having a go at the unemployed

nice idea, but not much use if you cannot afford a suit to start with?

Very nice gesture from Timpsons

Not that I have ever owned a suit but is it an actual requirement if one is having an interview to wear one ? Also is this just a male thing ?

Wow, what a nice marketing tool. Heat for the offer and when I'm next over for a funeral I will make sure my suit is dry cleaned at one of their branches as a show of support. Been unemployed (free will, didn't clam anything, never have), every little helps.

Horses for courses and a common sense approach. Every person going for a job interview should attend clean and tidy. 99% of office vacancies would obviously want the applicant to turn up in a suit. Labourer or perhaps a cleaner, not so.

HOT BTW - Brilliant marketing and a nice gesture. I for one will pop my suits in Timpsons from now on as I like dealing with companies that run on that sort of ethos.

Its cheaper to send a child to a private elite boarding school a year than hold a prisoner at Her Maj Pleasure (we pay not her) - so why do we give Child Tax Credits and state schools funding that by large are poor investments that teach state financial dependency ? Labour spend too much on public services, Tories cut to much but nobody reforms the state but tinkers round 60 year old models of (mis)management at our cost - yet England keeps voting them in ? Try liberate yourselves and country with some democracy for a change from a two team monopoly game for decades.


Nice to see a company go against the grain, even if it will be a tax loss to Customs & Revenue - because its cheaper than DWP handing out money for new suits/interview clothing, just buy one from a charity shop who will knock the price down if you explain you are unemployed and need it for a interview, most will as they got it free, then free cleaning of it.

I will give my next purchase of keys etc to Timpson.

Heat added OP

how much does it normally cost to get a suit dry cleaned?

Timpsons are one of the few decent employers. Sure they benefit from marketing and PR but the offer is genuine. I'd rank them up there with decent employers such as Lakeland.

Timpsons genuinely employ Category D offenders. They also give all their employees their birthdays off, free use of holiday home lodges around the country, free use of the company limo when you get married along with a £100 and a week off work.

So for those that belittle them, you need to see the wider picture and to see that they are wholly magnanimous.

Yikes, not really a nice gesture just pretty cheap/clever pr and probably a little nudge nudge/nod/wink to someone further up the food chain for future favour to be collected as and when. aargh, there be kickbacks over yonder.

If it was truly such a wonderful generous act they should surely take a person at their word when inquiring if they were unemployed and had an interview rather than requiring any proof at all.

Assuming that the person in need turning up for a free suit cleaning is unworthy of trust straight off the bat is the bigger issue. Another day in paradise.

Not a thing against the firm, just 50% of the staff I've had the misfortune to deal with. No idea if these are the crims or not.
