UK’s first job interview clothing store filled with pre-loved opens in Waterloo Station

Trainline will be opening the doors to its first ever clothing store this month, dedicated to helping job seekers stride into an interview with confidence, in a nice new outfit sourced entirely from pre-loved gear.

The opening of The Interview Store comes as research reveals that over a third (38%) of UK consumers – and nearly half of Gen Z (45%) – can’t justify spending money on new work clothes due to the rising cost-of-living. Yet, two in five (41%) feel more confident and prepared for an interview when dressed in a new outfit.

The store will open in London Waterloo Station, the UK’s busiest train station, which sees more than 41 million passengers travel each year from across the country. On Tuesday 28 February, Wednesday 1 and Thursday 2 March, the pop-up clothing store will provide job seekers with the chance to get their hands on a new feel-good interview outfit, completely free of charge.

From a corporate position to an artistic role, the store will provide appropriate attire for all interviews – with Trainline covering the cost. Celebrating pre-loved clothing, all of the outfit options will be sourced from second hand suppliers, offering a sustainable new look for a (hopefully!) successful interview.

With interview skills being another daunting element of the process, The Interview Store won’t stop at just providing feel-good garments. On Tuesday 28th and Wednesday 29th from 10am – 2pm, career expert Alice Stapleton will be on-hand to help customers to build their confidence ahead of their interview.

The Interview Store has been launched to make interviewing a cheaper and less stressful experience. Alongside providing free clothing and advice, Trainline will also be offering a limited discount code providing £10 off for those travelling via train to their next interview. The discount code will officially be shared with customers on the store opening day.The Interview Store will be welcoming limited walk-ins across the three opening days. Although, for those who want to lock in their spot ahead of an upcoming interview, bookings can be made here.
