ENS Turns 25!

Posted: 9th December 2016

ENS is now officially 25 and as part of our 25th anniversary celebrations the team have been taking part in 25 fun and challenging events to give something back to the local community. These have included a 25 hour Spinathon for local charity Vibrance, a Bake Off for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, quiz night for Mencap Showstoppers and a silver dress down day, to name just a few. The 25 events will soon finish when the ENS team takes on 25 laps of Southend’s famous pier.

ENS remains a family-run company, although it has grown significantly since it first opened its doors in 1991 and now provides a number of services throughout the South East. It has specialist recruitment divisions for placements in Health and Social Care, Commercial roles and most recently Education. Their successful training division ensures all social care staff are fully compliant, and it also runs a variety of courses for external staff. It is also a care provider in its own right and offers tailored support packages for people who want to live independently.

Managing Director Allyson Abel comments:

“This year has seen real change for ENS, we’ve launched our education division; ENS Education, gone through a major rebrand and opened a brand new office. It’s great to see how far we’ve come over the past 25 years and to be able to celebrate all our hard work.

We want to thank everyone in the local community for their amazing support over the years. We hope to continue to bring exciting new job opportunities to the people of Essex and the South East and to provide excellent care to the people we support.”

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.
