Enriching Talent. Supporting Change. Advancing Equity
Cadence Partners are trusted strategic advisors of Executive Search, Interim Management and Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Consultancy.
We are an agency with a difference; part recruitment, part consultancy, underpinned by EDI and a social purpose. We create partnerships with our clients to build diverse, high performing, motivated and resilient leadership teams; through our partnerships we are considered strategic advisors on all talent matters, creating long-lasting, invested relationships, not just quick-wins.
Our purpose is to create a more equitable, just and representative society, where everyone has opportunity, whatever their background.
As a group of individuals from diverse backgrounds, we know first-hand the creativity, rich contribution, and value that different perspectives and experience adds to an organisation. With our individual experiences of working in cross-cultural environments, we make sure that EDI is not just a ‘tick box’ exercise.
We’re not a large, unresponsive corporation; we strive to develop a partnership with all our clients and candidates.
We are human and personal; we are genuinely interested in getting to know you, your organisation, your culture and values, and how we can support you with your challenges and journeys. We are here to collaborate, challenge, educate, inspire and empower our partners, to help build and develop a workplace that is genuinely and authentically committed to being inclusive, and driving positive social change.
Over a century of knowledge, experience, and passion for what we do.
We use our extensive research, knowledge and evidence-based solutions to help you create a diverse workforce that champions new ideas, allows concerns to be voiced and is open to trying new ways of doing things, for all the right reasons. We don’t just rely on our vast networks of connections, we throw the net wider to uncover talent from non-traditional sources, creating greater accessibility for under-represented groups, and greater choice for organisations.
We are actively involved in making positive change happen.
Our Partners, Consultants and Researchers are all diversity champions, active advisors and regular contributors to research, guides and white papers within the sectors that we partner. We also partner with EDI groups, mentor and coach diverse talent and sponsor annual bursaries for first-time Trustees and NEDs. Some of our recent contributions include;‘No more tickboxes’, a guide to support hiring managers in the NHS to recruit senior leaders more inclusively; the NHS Board Recruitment Compact, supporting to raise the overall standard of executive search recruitment, and promoting greater innovation, inclusivity and consistency; and Getting on Board’s guide on “how to diversity your charity’s board”.
