Welcome to the team Mike, Kate and Alex!

We’re super excited to welcome to the Catch team Mike, Kate and Alex - Project Manager, UX Designer and QA Tester respectively. 

Mike joins our Delivery Team as a Project Manager. Mike comes to Catch with over a decade's worth of experience with projects in the construction, manufacturing and digital health industries. He's passionate about delivering projects that make a real difference to people, and loves it when a plan comes together!

Outside of work, Mike is a father to one child and two cats and enjoys playing chess and snowboarding - though usually not at the same time.

“I'm thrilled to begin the next step in my career with Catch, as their ethos is so aligned with my own. The team has welcomed me with open arms, and I'm looking forward to creating some awesome products.”

Mike, Project Manager

Joining our Experience Design team as a UX Designer, Kate has a strong history of creative problem-solving, having worked in education and the arts before moving into design full-time. She has since worked for startups, in MarTech and PropTech as well as other well-established legacy companies. 

Collaboration and co-design are most definitely her jam, working to truly define and deliver the right solution. 

"Joining an agency with such a huge amount of experience, along with strong leadership was the big draw for me. I'm especially looking forward to being able to work alongside my colleagues to deliver a user-first approach to our work."

Kate, UX Designer

And last but not least, Alex, the newest member of our QA Team, comes to us with a very good pedigree, having spent the last two and a half years working at Zoonou, one of the UK's leading providers of software testing and quality assurance services.

He’s a computer science grad and has spent his time managing and running QA for a variety of different projects.

“I am very excited to have the opportunity to progress my existing and new skills in my role here at Catch Digital. I look forward to working with the amazing team and setup we have here.”

Alex, QA Tester

Christmas Giving at Catch

At Catch, we like to make sure we give something back at this time of year. To help us do so as a team, we scrapped the traditional - and slightly cringeworthy - office Secret Santa in 2019. 

Instead, we take part in two charity initiatives - Christmas Jumper Day and Kids Out’s Giving Tree scheme.

Christmas Jumper Day is Save the Children's annual event which raises money for children in the UK and across the world. Every December, we all dust off our most festive jumpers (apart from Gary, our Tech Director, who happily wears his all month) and make donations to Save the Children. We’re happy to say we hit our target very quickly this year.

Designed to be a fun alternative to the traditional Secret Santa, Giving Tree is not only simple to get involved with but a fun exercise for the whole office! Rather than buy each other cheap - and occasionally tacky! - Secret Santa gifts, instead we each buy something from the Giving Tree shop. The gifts are then given directly to children in refuge homes and other children across the country who are in great need, helping make Christmas the special time of year it should be.

If you’d like to take part in the Giving Tree scheme, you can do so here.
