ENS Skydives for charity – what happened on the day?

On Saturday 25th August 2018, three brave volunteers from the ENS team, David, Raj and Leah, helped raise awareness and money for local mental health charity, South East and Central Essex Mind (SECE Mind) by skydiving for the charity.

The cause

Our trio wanted to take part in the skydive to support SECE Mind’s excellent services and to raise awareness about mental health, a key focus and passion for each of our trio!
The money raised will allow SECE Mind to continue providing life changing support for those living with mental health issues, while the awareness raised will challenge the stigma of openly talking about mental health.

What happened on the day?

After a long drive, the team reached Beccles Airfield, the site of Saturday’s skydive! And before they knew it, it was time to begin getting ready as the big jump was imminent. After preparing for the skydive, the team were airborne, slowly climbing in altitude to 30,000ft. Everyone was feeling a real mix of emotions, from nerves to excitement! After the tense climb in altitude, it was finally time for the trio to JUMP! Here’s what happened:

The fundraiser

We’ve received a number of generous donations from staff, friends, family and fans alike, are very pleased to announce that ENS’ JustGiving page has exceeded its original target, raising an extraordinary £1256.25 for SECE Mind!
We‘d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who supported our courageous trio and the incredible cause!

Meet our brave volunteers

Leah Hudson (Bookings consultant and CSR lead)
Leah works as a consultant for our Health and Social Care division and places our temporary workers in the South East London and Dartford area. We caught up with Leah before the event, and she was very excited for the sky dive, hoping it would itch her thrill-seeking scratch.
We can safely say that Leah loved every minute of the skydive, not only because she found it incredibly fun but because her brave effort has contributed to a cause she is passionate about!

David Lambourne (Payroll Supervisor)
Dave is the payroll and pension supervisor for the whole of ENS, paying agency, contracted and head office staff. Dave was looking forward to the epic skydive, and also really enjoyed his time supporting a cause he is a huge advocate for. While he was apprehensive on the day, he really enjoyed the jump and was glad to tick it off of his ‘bucket list’!

Raj Chahal (Senior HR Advisor)
Lastly, Raj works in the HR team for ENS, supporting our agency, contracted and head office staff. Raj has been supporting SECE Mind since they partnered with ENS at the beginning of 2018, and the skydive was no exception.
Raj loved getting involved and supporting the truly phenomenal work that SECE Mind continue to do.


We would like to take the time to thank everyone responsible for organising such a fantastic fundraiser! A big well done also to everyone who took part on the day, shared our posts on social media and of course pledged money towards the brilliant cause.

What people are saying about ENS

ENS has been our sole agency provider for the past 8 years. During this time we have worked in partnership to establish an agency service that provides us with the assurance that ENS staff are flexible, highly trained and able to adapt to our working environment across all of our diverse services.
ENS has been able to support our services to a very high standard throughout our geographical locations. Key Performance Indicators often exceed agreed outcomes.
Our relationship with their senior team and operational supervisors is professional and open. We are assured that our long standing working relationship with ENS will continue.
To this end we would not hesitate to recommend ENS as an agency provider to support their organisation.

We needed to fill two last minute vacancies with high quality teachers.  With this brief, Julie from ENS did not disappoint.  One candidate was from Canada and Julie ensured that the move over went as smoothly as possible both for the teacher and the school. 
What impressed me the most was how Julie listened to exactly what I required and so no time was wasted on my part, sifting through candidates who would not have been good enough for my school. I would highly recommend ENS to another school looking to fill their teacher vacancies.

My daughter Lynda has enjoyed 24 hour care provided by ENS since July 2013. The care staff are all well trained & briefed as to her complex healthcare regime & are also very sociable. This is very important to Lynda who loves to talk &interact with them. They also manage her household budget, encourage her to participate in domestic tasks within her capabilities, & promote a healthy lifestyle. The administration of ENS is excellent & has ensured that Lynda has a regular rota of carers & that when stand ins are necessary that they have had shadow shifts with her.


I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the hard work and support you have offered our Foyer and Parent and Child Scheme in managing the placement of temporary staff.
We appreciate the level of consistency and continuity your staff have bought to the schemes and would not hesitate in recommending the services of ENS Recruitment.
