What Our Team Say
“My time with Catalyst has been invaluable. When I look back I'm amazed by the amount of new things I have tried. I have been equipped with a whole new set of skills that I know will help me in the next steps of my career. I am very grateful for the enriching experience of being a member of the Catalyst team"
"I feel so grateful for the opportunity I was given and for the skills and experiences I've gained. I truly think the Catalyst team offers graduate and placement students a unique experience and there is nowhere else I would have rather spent my first year out of university!"
Beth Johnson, Catalyst Team Five Member
"This year has transformed my confidence and my skillset. When deciding to undertake a placement, I knew I wanted to validate my skills, and the variety of work within Catalyst has allowed me to do that tenfold. I've worked with so many different clients who have allowed me to develop a multitude of skills, it's been a ball."
