Careers at CGL
Find your dream job at CGL
We are delighted that you are considering joining us at CGL. You will be welcomed into a friendly team with shared values who are committed to transforming the lives of our service users.
We are proud of our unique culture and the way our values are fundamental to everything we do. We recruit motivated staff who share our values and are passionate about the work we do. In return, we offer you a supportive environment and a wide range of opportunities for you to develop your career with us.
Here are some of the reasons why a career with CGL is so rewarding.
Professional support and development
You will be supported in your role by extensive training to help refine and develop your skills. Our learning culture encourages everyone to stay on top of the latest developments in their field and helps drive innovation and service improvement.
“I started my first job at CGL over eight years ago and straight away I knew this was the right place for me. I’ve met some phenomenal people and seen some incredible journeys. I bounce out of bed when I know I’m going to be training people! In one of my training sessions I ask participants to describe the essence of what is best about their role, and one of them has really stuck with me: “For our service users life can feel like climbing Everest. The support we provide can be the oxygen on their backs.” - Kerry, Learning & Development Regional Manager
Improving the service user experience
We value individual creativity and initiative and, whatever your role, you will be fully involved in identifying opportunities to improve the quality of our services and the service user experience. Your ideas will be listened to and your suggestions implemented wherever possible.
“At CGL I know what happens at ground level and I can use that to make big changes for service users. It takes a lot for someone to knock on our door – that first step is the most important step they’ll ever take. One size certainly doesn’t fit all, so we have to tailor our treatment to individual needs. Everyone is so welcoming at my service and I’m confident we can make a big difference to people’s lives.” – Dr Abhi, Consultant Psychiatrist
Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI)
For us, EDI means building a workforce which is representative of the communities we serve and that values the contribution of people with a range of perspectives and experiences.
Everyone at CGL can contribute to the design and development of services to ensure they are inclusive, accessible, culturally appropriate and responsive to the diverse needs of all service users.
When you join us, you will become part of an organisation which is working to become a sector leader for EDI practice and you will be able to make a genuine contribution to the quality of the services we provide.
