Catalyst is a specialist recruitment consultancy focusing on appointments within the London property development sector.

We work directly with clients and project management consultancies to provide highly qualified candidates for key roles.

We support a variety of client bodies, including property developers, international funds, landlords, family offices and end users to source, recruit and appoint development managers and project managers.


We partner with a variety of project management consultancies, from multi-national organisations to boutique start-ups — focusing on those that value the differentiated service we offer, rather than the basic, process-driven support our competitors are renowned for.


We pride ourselves on offering a personalised, tailored service to each of the clients we work with, shaped by their specific business needs and strategic goals.

Common elements of our service include:

  • Front-end recruitment advice aligned with business strategy
  • Consulting with clients to correctly position roles
  • Defining technical competencies and role requirement
  • Devising, implementing and optimising recruitment strategy
  • Crafting and promoting effective external messaging
  • Assisting clients in increasing their brand recognition
  • Producing comprehensive, targeted job descriptions
  • Sourcing and appointing highly-qualified candidates

With 20 years of experience in the construction and property industries, we know that successful appointments are born out of trust. Over the years we’ve built a strong reputation, based on genuine care for the clients and candidates we work with — many of whom partner with us exclusively.

We offer straightforward, considered and unbiased advice, drawing on our extensive knowledge of industry-specific requirements and challenges. We’re invested in every relationship for the long term, and we’re proud that many of those we represented as candidates choose to use our services when the opportunity arises to appoint their own teams.

Honesty is our core value — ensuring candidates and clients have realistic expectations of our services, and can count on us to guide them in their decision making. With Catalyst, your company — or your career — are in safe hands.


We work with a select number of clients — allowing us to understand their company, strategy and ethos in detail and build productive long-term relationships.
