Staff facilities

Staff facilities

Every CADS office has free parking and a recreational break-out area. Some offices have outdoor space and seating to enjoy lunch, as well as a games room. This is all part of our aim to provide a workplace that everyone enjoys coming to each day.


CADS life

We’re a sociable company and everyone is encouraged to organise and get involved in events and gatherings. Away from the office there have been meals out, camping weekends, local rambles and teams that have entered various races – on foot, on bikes and through the water. Not to forget the colleagues who bounced their way through a giant inflatable obstacle course!

Staff also get involved in many fundraising events throughout the year including bake-offs for Macmillan and Children in Need, a cycle event for the Water for Kids charity, the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge to fund Sarcoma cancer treatment and a corporate donation to Circus Starr.

We also have company Ambassadors who meet on a monthly basis to discuss activities for social events, charitable causes and ways to keep employees informed about the business.
