Apprenticeships with Catalyst

We invest in people through our award-winning apprenticeship scheme and give them the chance to grow and develop.

During 2018/19 we took on six apprentices at our head office in Ealing, with roles covering:

  • Customer services
  • HR
  • Communications
  • IT
  • Community development (Catalyst Gateway)

We also have construction apprenticeship opportunities with our contractors, available through Catalyst Gateway.

Our apprenticeships are run as part of the Government’s apprenticeship programme – visit for more information about becoming an apprentice.

Jodie Harris, our Learning and Development Manager:

“I believe that everyone has their own way of learning – and apprenticeships are a great way of gaining skills and experience for those who feel that university isn’t the right path into a career.

From Catalyst’s point of view apprenticeships are a great way of growing and developing our own talent. As an organisation it’s part of our social purpose to provide opportunities for people to grow and develop, and apprenticeships are a great way to help people reach their potential.

I’ve been really impressed by how far our apprentices have come since they joined us last April – they’ve brought a real energy and commitment to developing their skills while delivering a fantastic service across the business.”.
