BSc Business and Management (hons)
Oliver recently graduated from Sussex university with a 2:1 degree in Business management. Oliver, originally from Brighton (Hove actually), thoroughly enjoyed his time at Sussex which is where he first encountered the Innovation centre and Catalyst team while interviewing a client for a University project. Seeing the interesting work, and the great people based at the Innovation centre Oliver was thrilled to be offered an opportunity to work with Catalyst after his studies. University had given him a passion for business and people, now he needed to go out and develop himself and his experiences.
One of Oliver’s biggest passions is sport, he can play and enjoys most sports, but his true passion is Rugby. Starting at the tender age of 7 Oliver loved playing for his local team (Hove RFC) and even enjoyed two Sussex championships during his career. Sadly, he had to stop playing after injuring his shoulders on numerous occasions and now enjoys going to the gym to keep fit and relieve stress.
Oliver’s previous work experience has been mainly involved around the hospitality industry stretching over 4 years. This has helped him deal with people and problems from a wide range of cultures and backgrounds. It also gave Oliver the ability to organise and work in a team effectively. Hoping to enhance his knowledge and skills, Oliver is very excited to be working with the Catalyst team and will one day hopefully use this experience to set up his own business.
