Our Story

Challenge Accepted.

We discovered there was value in diversity – both in our business model and our people – and we organised ourselves around small agile teams, maximising the strengths of each individual.

We are committed to creating a Cadence that works for our people. A significant number of the team are working parents, where flexible hours help maintain a sustainable work-life balance. We find that trust and mutual respect are fundamental underpinnings to a successful outcome, and help build vital strength and resilience.

“With 2 small boys and a commercial pilot for a husband, there are times when I would not be able to manage were it not for the flexibility that Cadence offers when it comes to working hours. I feel very supported during the times I need to bend and flex to do my other job of being a mum and so grateful that I never need to miss out on important events in my family’s lives.”
