Apprenticeship support

We work with our repairs and maintenance contractors ENGIE, Chas West and DW Support Services to create apprenticeship, employment and training opportunities for our customers. We also work with our development and regeneration partners to provide construction related job opportunities.

Working with ENGIE

Catalyst work with ENGIE to deliver repairs and maintenance services for our west London hub. The focus of this partnership is making sure we deliver an excellent repairs service. However, we also work closely with them to deliver a range of additional personal development opportunities for our customers.

As part of their employment and skills plan, ENGIE have taken a proactive approach to working with Catalyst customers and communities to understand local needs and priorities. This has helped us to introduce training and apprenticeship opportunities to benefit customers and help us positively impact local communities.

Suzanne Bingham – Apprenticeship Development Officer, ENGIE

‘Working with Neda and the Catalyst team was a very rewarding experience. ENGIE and Catalyst worked in partnership seamlessly throughout the recruitment process, from spreading the word to local residents, conducting interviews, to offering top quality work experience.

The end result was two outstanding residents being offered professional trades apprenticeships with ENGIE that will lay the foundations for successful future careers within the construction industry and social housing. A fantastic outcome all round.’
