Letter from the Finance Director

Dear Applicant
Thank you for your interest in the finance campaign.
Catalyst has been at the forefront of housing for over 80 years and is now one of the leading housing associations in London and the South East. We provide a wide range of housing solutions and community development initiatives to over 20,000 households, and pride ourselves on working closely with residents and partners to meet local needs.
We are experts in multi-tenure development and regeneration - and are committed to building 7,000 new homes by 2020. But more importantly we are passionate about creating great places to live and strong communities across London and the South East and to delivering ever-improving services for our customers.
This is an exciting time to be joining Catalyst. We, along with the wider housing sector, are facing a time of great change as we respond to changing government policy as well as to rising customer expectations. In joining Catalyst's Finance Team, you will be an important part of our success both as a team and as a company. We have a lot of work to do in implementing new systems and new ways of working that we hope will take the quality and agility of our service to new heights - supporting an ambitious corporate agenda.
We are looking for people who are committed to 'The Catalyst Way' of working, who are able to understand the changes impacting upon us and our customers, and to be creative, proactive and effective in responding to these. You'll play a key part in our 'Making it Easy - inside and out' customer excellence programme, which is at the heart of building a culture which makes it easy for our customers to do business with us and enables our people to: make things easy, make things happen and make a difference.
I can assure you that choosing to work for Catalyst will be an extremely exciting and challenging career prospect. We are proud to be a 2014 UK Best Workplace, and Sunday Times best company to work for, and to have achieved Best Companies accreditation.
So if being a part and an organisation with a sector-leading track record, but with a relentless determination to make things even better for our customers, communities and employees; and sounds right up your street'; and if 'The Catalyst Way' sounds like music to your ears, then I hope you will apply and wish you the best of luck with your application.
Yours Sincerely
Rachael Dennis
Executive Finance Director
