A Programme Manager to join our team
Catalyst is seeking an experienced and highly motivated Programme Manager to join our team.
Design Hub is a new Catalyst programme that will provide bespoke one to one support for individuals at the very beginning of their innovation journey and will create a new track for more diverse non-tech/non-STEM founders to start innovation led businesses.
The Design Hub programme will serve as a safe space for innovation and the development of new ideas, products, services, and solutions. Working in collaboration with the Entrepreneurship for All Programme, the Design Hub will support the increased entrepreneurial activity and success, by improving ambition knowledge and confidence in under-represented audiences.
As the Programme Manager for the Design Hub, you will be responsible for overseeing the development, implementation, and continuous improvement of the programme. You will work closely with various stakeholders and partners, to cultivate a vibrant and supportive ecosystem that nurtures creativity, innovation, and business growth.
This is a unique opportunity to make a lasting impact on the entrepreneurial ecosystem by championing diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Criteria may be enhanced to aid shortlisting. Exceptional candidates who do not meet the criteria may be considered for the role provided they have the necessary skills and experience.
Catalyst is an independent, not-for-profit organisation. We work for the greater good to build an inclusive innovation community in an entrepreneurial ecosystem throughout Northern Ireland. The epicentre of Northern Ireland’s tech sector, we provide everything that innovators and entrepreneurs need to reach higher and succeed faster – a home, business support, connected networks and much more besides. We invest, pro bono, all surplus profits from our property portfolio into nurturing a community-led innovation ecosystem that supports over 900 start-ups, entrepreneurs, and innovators so they can grow, scale and flourish.
Diversity and inclusion aren’t boxes to tick on a CSR list. At Catalyst, they are part of our DNA, lived, breathed, seen, and heard across our community, projects, and co-working spaces.
We not only want to foster and empower a culture of innovation, but also an environment where people can be their true, authentic self and thrive, and we are proud to be recognised by the Diversity Charter for achieving silver status, with ambitions to progress to Gold.
As an equal opportunity employer, we recruit based solely on the individual’s ability to perform the role, and that’s allowed us to create an inclusive workplace which celebrates the diversity of our teams and community.
A certified Great Place to Work®, Catalyst is one of Northern Ireland’s most exciting employers.
