Working at CLI

We welcome inspirational people to our CLI team

When you join CLI you are joining an organisation fully committed to our number one value People first.

People are our top priority. We care so everyone can be their best – be that everyone in our CLI team and all those we support.

We do challenging work. You’ll be supporting people with experience of addiction, the criminal justice system or rough sleeping and helping them create the positive change needed to move on with their lives.

In turn we invest in you, so you are fully supported to do great work and deliver consistently high outcomes, whilst ensuring your wellbeing is protected.

You will need to share our values and a commitment to supporting people to achieve their potential

And we welcome people with lived experience of addition, homelessness, the criminal justice system, or mental health challenges. Many in our team have built on these experiences and taken their career forward with CLI.

What we offer our team

When you join CLI you are joining an award-winning organisation. We are delighted that our commitment to our people has been recognised by CLI being awarded Investors in People Gold status and being nominated for the prestigious IIP Employer of the Year Award for 2022.

In support of this we have set out our proposition to our team.

  • Pension: Peoples Pension scheme, contributions are 3% employer and 5% employee
  • Life insurance: Five times salary

I have worked in HR for 9 years and more recently have worked in sectors which aim to help people better their lives. I was drawn to working at CLI as I could clearly see the passion that everyone had for helping people, as well the strong work ethic.

I joined CLI in June 2022 and I have never felt so welcomed into a company. I felt a part of the CLI team from week one. CLI recognise the hard work, skills, knowledge and passion that each individual brings which is always great to see.

I’m proud to be working at CLI and very thankful for the opportunity to contribute to CLI’s continued success.
