‘As a passionate advocate of progressive social justice, I’ve looked at CLES many times over the years and thought that it would be a great place to work. Joining this inspiring team of individuals at this point in my career feels like the perfect move! Working for CLES also offers me the chance to bring together the knowledge and skills I’ve developed over the last 9 years to help reshape public services and local economies for the benefit of all.’
