Our goal at Catalyst is to provide ‘homes that people love’. It means everything from creating and maintaining great homes to providing great customer service every day. We offer a wide range of housing solutions and opportunities for our various needs and requirements of our clients, including rental, partial ownership or purchase. In doing so, we are building more than houses – we are building communities.

  • In-depth knowledge and experience in a wide range of community investment areas such as community development, environmental projects, volunteering, community sports activities or health and wellness
  • Experience in designing and delivering programs to address a wide range of social issues and community priorities in mixed tenure neighborhoods.

To be successful in your role as a community investment specialist, you will need to:

  • Lead the development and delivery of Catalyst’s community investment offering for St Ann’s redevelopment by working with a range of stakeholders and the wider community.
  • Make the best use of local knowledge, community knowledge, data and feedback to establish activation activities, event programs and projects that build resilience and empower the local community.
  • Actively engage key stakeholders, including residents’ representatives, schools, youth groups, charities and others, to build innovative partnerships and coordinate community interventions.
  • Participate in the organization and conduct of other public consultation events related to St Ann’s development, alongside other colleagues.
  • Identify active and interested groups and individuals and provide training, resources and capacity building as needed to ensure that people are equipped to make decisions about their community and can take charge of the management of community spaces.

The UK has a housing problem that affects all of us because housing is the foundation of the society we live in. Catalyst is part of the solution and you could be too!
