OUR STORY BEGINS IN 1999, WHEN MATTHEW DAVID ELLIS, A YOUNG ENTREPRENEUR FROM SOLIHULL, JOINED FORCES WITH PERTEMPS RECRUITMENT PARTNERSHIP.
The two newly formed partners established Executive Network Group in Edgbaston, Birmingham.
The partners were very different, one a national recruitment business established in 1961 with over 100 Branches being one of the largest Recruitment organisations in the UK, the other an entrepreneurial young individual with a talent for “specialist” recruitment. Both shared common passions; A passion for understanding individual people, a passion for world class service, a passion for excellence and a passion to be the best. It was this shared passion that brought this partnership together and led to the creation of Executive Network Group.
First came RED in 2002, a brand famed in the Midlands for its superiority in the Rec-4-Rec sector. Closely following this success, in 2004 The HSE Recruitment Network was acquired; the UK’s leading Health, Safety and Environmental recruitment consultancy. Soon after this a gap was identified in the Facilities Management industry for a recruitment business with our passion & values and The FM Network was born in 2010. In 2012 the No.1 resource for HR talent, Network HR joined the group. Most recently in 2013 our group’s expertise in the heavy equipment sector saw the creation of The Equipment Network, as well as pushing our expertise to construction with the birth of the group’s most recent brand; Construction Network. 2016 has seen Procurement People join ENG, bringing expertise within the UK procurement market.
