Careers – We are always looking for new talent to join our team

At Connected Places Catapult, we work to harness UK innovation helping to create connected places for a more prosperous and greener future. 

We love the work that we do, and we take our business seriously,  delivering real solutions to real challenges.  Our focus is on connecting businesses to cutting-edge research and technologies in the domains of mobility and place, to spark new possibilities and accelerate the creation of innovative products and services, which will deliver improvements to the way we live, work, play and travel — whilst  growing the UK economy in the process. 

We believe that a team approach is the surest way for us to achieve our goals. Our almost 250 colleagues work collaboratively to broker relationships with small and large businesses, cities and local governments, research and academia as well as  local communities and citizen-groups, to deliver the tools needed to create connected places fit not just for the future wellbeing of people and the environment – but also for innovative infrastructure and entrepreneurial economies. 

We already have a long track record of work with leading and progressive firms and organisations, as well as local and national governments, from around the world.
