Confederation of British Industry (CBI) - Profile Banner.


The CBI is the UK’s most effective and influential business organisation.

We provide our members with the influence, insight and access they need to plan ahead with confidence and grow. We represent their views as we work with policymakers to deliver a healthy environment for businesses to succeed, create jobs and ultimately, drive economic growth and prosperity.

The CBI is a not-for-profit membership organisation, founded by Royal Charter. We speak on behalf of 190,000 businesses of all sizes and sectors. Together they employ nearly 7 million people, about one third of the private sector-employed workforce.

With 13 offices around the UK as well as representation in Brussels, Washington, Beijing and Delhi, the CBI communicates the British business voice around the world.


The CBI provides a voice to policymakers for firms at a regional, national and international.

Our purpose – helping business create a more prosperous society.


We provide our members with three core benefits.

Influence – By harnessing the collective strength of our members, we create a formidable force – keeping business at the heart of policy in Westminster, across the UK, the EU and overseas. We successfully shape the pro-enterprise policies that firms need to seize opportunities and tackle barriers to growth.

Insight – With the largest policy team outside Whitehall, we provide members with a wealth of cross-sector expertise to help their companies grow – from market leading surveys, forecasts and analysis to practical support and advice on policy changes and the issues that impact on business success.

Access – Our unrivalled networks enable members to meet and hear from senior business and political leaders, potential customers and suppliers. And our local, national and international meetings and events put members in touch with each other to share ideas, experiences and new market opportunities – providing them with the connections they need to compete and prosper.

We're here looking for:

The CBI is keen to meet businesses that are looking to take a proactive stance in working towards achieving the most positive environment for their own success and that of the wider UK economy.
