Who are your biggest competitors? What makes your company special compared to its competitors?

No one within the recruitment and staffing industry is currently doing what Catapult is trying to achieve. We’re not conforming to the traditional agency staffing model. Instead we are relying on technology to replace highly paid consultants. Basically this means businesses can cut their recruitment costs by a whole 75% by working with us, while also getting access to reliable staff.

Tell me about your clients – who purchases your products?

Our clients range from enterprise level, including some well known brands, to SMEs. Catapult has a healthy spread of clients based across various industries, especially within leisure and hospitality and retail. On the flipside, there is no set type of candidate, except for the fact that they are all looking for temporary work.
