What has ENS got planned for Mental Health Awareness Week?

As today marks the beginning of Mental Health Awareness Week, ENS have planned a slew of activities throughout the week to help raise awareness of mental health internally. We’re passionate about well-being and mental health, which is why we partnered with local mental health charity, South East and Central Essex Mind, on improving how we handle staff well-being.
Throughout the whole week we will be encouraging our internal staff to dress down, amongst a variety of other activities that will make the most of the warm weather and raise awareness of mental health.


We will be organising a short run after work along the beautiful Southend Seafront. Exercise is a great way to improve well-being, and a light jog along the seafront will be a brilliant way to raise awareness and promote good mental and physical health throughout the offices.


Amanda and Emily will be teaming up on Tuesday to paint Semi-Colon nail art for staff in the ENS offices throughout the day. We’re doing this in order to raise awareness of suicide prevention, as promoting the semi-colon,  the symbol for suicide prevention, is our way of showing company-wide support for the brilliant cause.


We’re encouraging our staff to get dressed up in green in aid of mental health awareness week, to show our support to the countless causes and charities that continue to do phenomenal work for those living with mental health issues.


On Thursday, ENS will be treating office staff to some smoothies, courtesy of ENS, in order to promote the benefits of healthy eating and drinking, and the large role dieting can play in well-being.

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.
