We're looking for
A customer-focused individual with energy, experience and a strong sense of purpose to join us as a Caretaker
Catalyst is all about homes people love. That means everything from developing and maintaining great properties, to delivering excellent service to our customers, every day.
We provide housing for those who can’t afford a home without our help, and offer a wide range of homes for rent, shared ownership or purchase.
In doing so, we build more than homes we build communities.
We’re one of the UK’s leading housing associations, and a member of the G15 group. We're at a particularly exciting point in our story, having recently merged with another large housing association, Aldwyck.
The merger makes us stronger and more able to deliver our social purpose - in every part of our organisation.
We’re a Sunday Times top 100 Best Company to Work for. We invest care, time and resources in our people because we know it’s our people who will drive our purpose.
If you’d like to be part of what we do, please get in touch.

You’ll maintain and update the list of tools and equipment at each allocated scheme and advise management when new materials are required or need to be maintained, repaired or renewed.
