We’re proud of the career progression that our team members enjoy

We love enthusiastic and ambitious people, and as they develop, we offer opportunities for them to step up to new and different roles. This includes short-term moves and projects across our four regions of operation, so a Sales Executive from the UK may provide support to the US team, and a Village Manager from Australia might help manage a bigger site in New Zealand. From global advancement programs to regional development initiatives, we’re all about supporting new talent and offering great career opportunities in a growing global business.

Elev8 Future Leaders Program

Elev8 is a global future leaders program that helps high performing staff progress within the business.

The 24-month program takes selected employees from Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States on eight one-week training sessions across the four countries. This is supported by in-class training, distance learning projects, academic study, on-the-job experience and support from Elev8 mentors.

Leveraging CLV’s global platform, Elev8 is a unique, international professional development opportunity exclusive to CLV staff.

Lauren's story

Elev8 participant, Australia
“Working with a company for the long term has become the exception, not the norm for people looking for the next challenge or quick progression. Luckily for me I discovered a company that inspires, develops and offers opportunities for employees to progress. Elev8 has given me a unique insight into the global business and enhanced my leadership skills, which I’m sure will assist in achieving my career aspirations. Since joining the Elev8 program, I’ve been promoted to a new role that I love.”

Abigail's story

Elev8 participant, United Kingdom
“The Elev8 program has provided me with the opportunity to increase my knowledge of key aspects of the business. I have been able to travel to other regions, meet new people and develop my leadership skills. By participating in the Elev8 program I am more aware of how much CLV is committed to developing and investing in people.”

“Elev8 has given me confidence to assist in leading our current team and teams at other sites around the region. The program is giving me more confidence in my own abilities and tapping into potential that I didn’t know I had.”

Michelle Barbridge

Elev8 participant, New Zealand

“Elev8 is an example of CLV caring about their employees, and caring for its own well-being. Elev8 inspires me to work harder, think deeper, and care more about my peers, managers and employees.”

Developing young talent (UK)

Our UK Stepping Up initiative is a series of learning and development programs, including Apprenticeships and graduate schemes, designed to nurture internal and external young talent. With programs to cater for both CLV employees and those in the wider community, participants are guided to explore and extend their employability skills, helping them to feel more confident in their next career move.

Graduate Program

Graduate scheme

Our annual Graduate Scheme allows two alumni from partner universities to step onto the career ladder and journey upwards through all areas of the business. Graduates can expect to develop skills in planning, budgeting, marketing, operations, customer service and residential life, as well as gaining global experience following international placements in the US and Australia.

Appren

Intern program

Our Intern Program increases the employability skills of students, helping to prepare them for life beyond university. Successful candidates are offered a paid placement for eight weeks and are assigned business critical projects to influence and steer the future of CLV. Their progress is guided and supported at every stage, delivering a rewarding internship with measurable results.

Apprenticeship

Apprenticeships

Developing young talent begins with the right qualifications and training. We offer a range of Apprenticeships across the business, from administration to digital marketing, helping those seeking to develop fresh skills or establish a career path in their chosen field. Many former apprentices have since secured permanent positions and continue to learn and develop.
