    Pros

    I’m Rod, the Chief Executive, sharing my thoughts on working at Catalyst. While my perspective might be a little different to others posting on here, based on feedback from colleagues I know many of us share the same ideas about what makes Catalyst a great place to work. So these points aren’t just what I think - they’re also what our colleagues told us in recent surveys and feedback sessions. At our core we’re driven by our social purpose to provide housing for those that need it the most. Making a purposeful difference is in our DNA – we’ve been doing this for over 90 years. Working here means making a real difference to people – where they live, the neighbourhood around them and their own life opportunities. Our big focus is on being great at building more homes and at regeneration - projects like Portobello Square in Kensington, and Blackhorse Yard in Waltham Forest - but also at providing a really great customer experience, something that we have been frankly hit and miss at in the past. All of this floats my boat – if it does yours, then look out for opportunities to join us. Our people are also crucial: my colleagues have told us that they really value the people around them, as well as an inclusive and supportive workplace culture. We offer competitive salaries, a generous pension, and family-friendly policies.

    Cons

    Like any organisation we don’t always get everything right. Feedback is crucial to us and we always welcome the opportunity to fix things and improve where needed. For example, we introduced regular meet-ups with the Leadership Team for everyone to attend, based on feedback that communications could be improved across the business. All are invited to share feedback with the senior management team, and hear the latest updates on our priorities. We also know that our people want more professional development opportunities, so this year we’ve prioritised developing a learning and development plan based on needs across the business, with opportunities to be launched shortly.
