We partner with enterprise to accelerate the development of innovations that build greater connectivity. Whether physical, digital, or human; we believe that connections are fundamental to bridging the economic, social, and environmental divides that we face as a country and as a planet. By encouraging new, better, and more plentiful connections we can ensure a future of long-term, sustainable growth for businesses and the people they serve.
Through connecting the market, sparking innovative technology and accelerating commercialisation we support enterprises to grow, and by doing so, we magnify their ability to connect people, places and businesses to the resources, ideas, and relationships they need to prosper.
Inspired by the ambition, dynamism, unity and focus that underpins our values, we encourage businesses to progress by applying big thinking to challenges in ways that drive genuine impact.
Though diverse in expertise and experience, we are all united around the same ambition – to connect people, places and businesses to a future of sustainable growth and prosperity.
Connected Places Catapult has two office locations, Milton Keynes and London. Most positions can be undertaken at either office location, but on occasion some positions will specify a location on the vacancy. Connected Places Catapult encourages colleagues to travel between the two sites to connect with colleagues, spark ideas and accelerate relationships.
Keeping all our colleagues safe is our first priority, especially during the COVID-19 Pandemic. We are back in our offices and all staff will have a working week both in the office and days at home.”

Cash Health Plan
To help our colleagues stay fit and healthy, CPC has teamed up with a health provider who offers colleagues a range of generous health and wellbeing cash plans. This benefit allows you to be reimbursed for a wide range of both essential and everyday healthcare expense such as flu vaccine, dental, eye-care and medical bills.
Cycle to Work Scheme
We like to support colleagues that have an interest in cycling, so we have a competitive cycle scheme for colleagues to utilise. We like to support anyone that wants to cycle to the offices, so we have bike racks, showers and lockers at both of our office locations (plus a drying cabinet in the London office). The scheme will help you spread the cost of a new bike over a 12- or 18-month period, through payroll deductions.
Our Payroll Giving Scheme, is a flexible option which allows anyone who pays UK income tax to give back to their charity of choice on a regular basis from your pre-tax income – helping your money go further to those who need it the most.
As an innovative, early adopter and future thinker, you’ll want the latest gadgets, so you have the option of buying any IT equipment and repaying it through payroll deductions.
