CLV is full of successful individuals, and we are committed to helping them achieve even more.

From global advancement programs to regional development initiatives, we’re all about supporting new talent and helping our staff build long, rewarding careers.

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 Storey

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.”

"Elev8 offers tremendous opportunity for talented staff to fast track their careers with CLV. As a business dedicated to creating exciting student experiences, we recognise the importance of providing equally exciting opportunities for the staff who make CLV what it is."

Global HR Director, Jan Wilman

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.


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.



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 shape the future of our business.
