ENS’ Celebration of Long Service afternoon

Posted: 14th September 2017

On Friday 8th September, ENS hosted a Celebration of Long Service, bringing some of our longest serving support workers together in an afternoon aiming to celebrate long-standing external staff.

ENS love hosting events for great causes, and Friday’s Long Service afternoon event was no exception – We united some of our longest serving staff, some of whom have accrued 15+ years of service with us, for an afternoon of good fun and great food.

We hosted the event as a way to say ‘thank you’ to all of our long serving staff who have shown an unprecedented amount of loyalty to ENS, sticking with us for, in some cases, over a decade. This kind of loyalty is very special in our industry, as such we wanted to give something back as a reward for long service and extraordinary work.

Here’s what our HR Manager, Victoria Graves, had to say:

“We wanted to shout ‘THANK YOU’ from the roof tops to those long serving agency staff and make it ‘all about them’. They go ‘Beyond Standards’ in everything they do for ENS, so we wanted to ensure we did the same for them.”

Lawrence, Lisa, Vera, Celia and Alison are all long-standing members of staff who managed to attend our Celebration of Long Service afternoon. When they arrived, they were greeted by a warm reception of office staff who had come to personally thank them for their continued service

and outstanding work. The guests of honour also received ENS branded goodie bags and a certificate, as a mark of appreciation on behalf of ENS. On top of that, all of our guests helped themselves to the delicious food and drink on offer; our sandwiches and cakes went down well, with the carrot cake being especially popular among all attendees! All of these elements came together to create an event that we hope properly honoured some of our longest-serving agency staff!

The idea for the event was born out of internal staff feedback, as some members of our ENS team thought that long-service recognition shouldn’t just be limited to long-serving office staff, but should also extend to our hard-working external staff whose care and support is intrinsic to the individuals we care for.

Lastly, we would like to thank Lawrence, Lisa, Vera, Celia and Alison for taking the time to join us and for their continued service with ENS.

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.
