Catalyse is a not-for-profit social enterprise offering training, therapy and consultancy through a network of experienced therapists and trainers based across the North of England.

Catalyse functions in an open and accountable way and is overseen by an Executive Committee who agree direction and priorities, and co-ordinate Catalyse activities, on which particular Executive members lead. In addition, a larger network of Catalyse Associates provide services.

We are hoping to recruit someone who has good interpersonal skills, is collaborative and responsive, who works well in a group and who wants to contribute to CAT developments in the North.
