Personal Development & Training

Developing Your Future

We invest in you

With rewarding work projects and learning and development opportunities, we invest time and money into ensuring our employees are fulfilled in their roles. We encourage our employees to explore new skills and paths that will enhance their roles and will use a variety of in-house and external training methods as appropriate.

Our employees build on their learning and development in a number of ways, including:

  • Soft skills courses
  • Technical courses and training
  • Formal qualifications, from NVQ to a Degree
  • Membership to a chartered body with CPD
  • Networking and industry conferences and events
  • Internal “on the job” training

Our open-door culture means employees can chat to the management team about their ideas and suggestions for the business or their role.

“I was given a fantastic start to my career with an apprenticeship at CADS. This involved both studying and working at The Design Centre and I was well supported throughout. Not only have I gained a great knowledge of the CAD industry, I’ve also made some great friends.”

Senior Surveyor

“I attended a Measured Surveys for Cultural Heritage course, delivered by Historic England. It was a really enjoyable 5 days where I gained a full understanding of the intricacies of capturing and delivering survey data for the conservation and management of historic buildings.”

Recognising staff successes

We know that our employees are the lifeblood of our business and play a critical part in our achievements to date – as well as our success in the future. To get there we ensure individuals feel valued, fulfilled and achieve a healthy work-life balance.

Whether it’s your first week at CADS or your 10th year, we’re committed to recognising the contributions of every member of staff and the value of the work they deliver.

Ways in which we do this include extra annual leave and vouchers for long-service, a fully funded Christmas party for all staff, a Summer office BBQ and sharing individual and team successes across the business.
