Join the Team

The New Leaf Initiative C.I.C. is an award winning, not for profit Community Interest Company supporting people with convictions to move away from crime into work through education, training and employment coupled with person-centred holistic support.

Incorporated in November 2014, we have secured year on year growth ever since and are now entering a period of substantial development that requires us to increase capacity in terms of additional staff members, and the development and management of new projects.
