Why join the CBI?

We’re a not-for-profit organisation whose mission is to help create and sustain the conditions in which businesses in the UK can compete and prosper for the benefit of all. We are the premier lobbying organisation for UK business on national and international issues.

We work with the UK government, international legislators, the business community and policymakers to help UK businesses compete effectively. Every department of government influences the prosperity and profitability of business, but the impact of proposed legislation may not be fully understood by those who devise it. The CBI is therefore vital to the entire business community because it can mobilise opinion and successfully bring influence to bear on government.

We succeed because we are the only organisation with the resources and expertise to cover such a range of business policy issues and have access where it counts: Westminster, Whitehall, across the English regions, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, the EU and beyond.  No other business organisation has such an extensive network of contacts with government ministers, MPs, civil servants, opinion formers and the media.

Benefits of working for the CBI

Once you’re here, we’ll provide you with unparalleled opportunities for development and growth. On top of that, take a look at what else we offer our employees:

  • You’ll be enrolled into the CBI pension plan. There’s also free non-contributory life assurance and a sickness scheme.
  • We take your wellbeing seriously – you’re eligible for free healthcare.
  • Season ticket loans, eye care vouchers and a cycle to work scheme.
  • Twenty-five days annual leave with an additional three days at Christmas each year.

Flexible working

At the CBI we recognise the advantages that flexible working patterns can bring. We’ll always fully consider flexible working and we will aim to facilitate different patterns of work wherever we can.

We have great I.T. support which allows our people to work from a variety of locations, and we aim to strike the right balance between work and life. If you have any questions about our approach to flexible working, please let us know.
