Mark Ferguson

Community Programmes Project Officer

Mark is a local lad and has lived in the heart of Stockton all his life. He joined Catalyst mid 2021 as a Kickstarter Administrative Assistant.

Before this role he was a door supervisor for 2 ½ years working in numerous venues in Stockton High Street and occasionally in Middlesbrough’s Town Centre, before leaving that line of work due to an injury sustained at work. After a year of searching for a job which was made a lot more difficult due to the COVID pandemic beginning just as Mark was given the all clear to return back to work, he knew he wanted to do something completely different and when he saw the opportunity arise for a 6 month Kickstarter with Catalyst he jumped at the chance and applied right away.

Near the end of his 6 month Kickstarter period, Mark was offered an extension to his role which saw him move from general office admin providing full time admin assistance to the HAF and HEP programmes that Catalyst and Stockton Borough Council run.

In April 2022 Mark once again went into a new role and is now in charge of organising all of Catalyst’s forums, Training programme and the annual Conference and Awards.
