Reward within the Alternatives industry is complex and how a business compensates its employees differs drastically from one to another. It's a niche function in the UK, so it has a limited professional network.

Catalyst recruited me for my current role and it was a great experience! Throughout the process I was well informed and and got honest feedback. Negotiation was smooth and the fit for the role has been great. Highly recommended!

Head of People Analytics and Org Effectiveness

Oil and Gas

A friend and colleague recommended I meet Lucy as they view her as professional and trustworthy, and it was immediately obvious why she has this reputation. From our first meeting, she took time to understand my skills and experience, and what was important to me as I considered my next move. At no point did she encourage me in a direction that wasn’t right for me - in fact, she knew very early on where I’d be a good fit and her instincts were spot on. She even sent me a “good luck” note prior to my first interview which I really appreciated.

It was an absolute privilege working with Lucy and I have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone looking for their next role.

Head of Executive Compensation

Multinational Asset Management company

Working with Krys was a complete breath of fresh air. His professionalism and dedication gave me the confidence that I had the best possible person fighting my corner every step of the way, and he thinks nothing of calling R&O and actively moving things along. He comes highly recommended.
