Fast-growing specialist financial services consultancy Catalyst Development Ltd is celebrating its official status as one of the UK’s top 50 Best WorkplacesTM. Catalyst went straight in at number 45 in the ‘medium’ category: a brand new entry in the all-sector listings released today by Great Place to Work® UK. Catalyst scored particularly highly for strategy and direction, recognition, engagement and wellbeing, with 89% of staff agreeing that ‘Catalyst is a great place to work’.
The designation tops a record year for Catalyst in terms of growing its services, markets, clients, staff and profitability.
Catalyst CEO Andrew Middleton comments “this is an exciting time for Catalyst. Our ambition is to be the pre-eminent, independent financial services consultancy in Europe, providing specialism at scale in business, technology and regulatory change.
Following the investment partnership announced last October, in the past seven months alone we’ve developed a range of new services, substantially grown both our client and staff base; entered the asset and wealth management market with our first strategic acquisition, acquired an off-shore base and intend shortly to announce the opening of our first nearshore base.
We work in a demanding sector, consistently delivering excellence to our clients. As a people business, we also have an enduring commitment to our own staff. We are committed to be an outstanding place to work, in which exceptional experts can build a specialist consultancy career.
This designation is testament to the fact that success comes from working with great people.”
