We will continue to create and maintain great homes, whilst delivering excellent service to customers every day. We offer a wide range of housing solutions and opportunities for our diverse range of customer needs and requirements including, rent, part ownership or purchase. In doing so, we build more than homes – we build communities.

What we’re looking for:

  • Are you an excellent written and verbal communicator?
  • Do you have a positive attitude with a proactive, enthusiastic, and flexible approach?
  • Have you got experience working in a support role?

  • Discreet, especially in matters of a confidential nature
  • Good problem solving and prioritisation skills
  • Experience of working with vulnerable people, particularly those with mental ill health

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