ENS Recruitment, a large independent recruitment agency specialising in health and social care in the South East, is delighted to announce that it has been selected by Estuary Housing Association to provide managed staff bank services.

Estuary Housing Association is a registered social landlord with charitable status and one of the largest Essex based housing associations. Their Care and Support Service provides care and support services for people with learning disabilities, mental health issues and additional complex needs in Southend, Thurrock and across Essex.

After 13 years of using ENS as its sole nursing and care recruitment agency, Estuary has decided to take its staff bank in house and outsource the running of it to ENS.  Estuary will benefit by having the control that its own Bank affords and at the same time having it run by an industry expert.  ENS will be responsible for the recruitment, training and deployment of a bank of nursing, care and support staff to provide cover for holiday, sickness and other planned and short notice leave.

"We are extremely pleased to be continuing our long standing partnership with Estuary," said Allyson Abel, Managing Director, ENS Recruitment.

To learn more about how ENS can manage your company's staff bank, please email ENS at or call  01702 361400 for further information.  Enquiries from talented support workers and qualified nurses who would like to join the Estuary staff bank are welcome too.

What people are saying about ENS

I feel I would like to give a positive review on working for ENS in any care capacity. I joined at the start of December 2015 and have been offered enough work to fit around my own needs and other commitments. The work has been varied and I received good information prior to the visit. The excellent dedicated back office support staff and they clearly understand their clients’ needs which are aligned to the qualities of the Support Workers, this helps builds the relationship.

While there is a need for help at short notice to meet the company needs I have been further impressed to have good notice of most of the work intended. My role has been largely Community Support but I have worked with our Residential team and clearly there is plentiful work again with helpful support.

In my dealings with the company I have found the ENS team to be helpful and approachable and need to reiterate how impressed I have been. Thank you to all involved.


A big thank you to you and all of the booking team that have put up with me over the months and helped me get an amazing full time job, Thank you :)


Maria Meddle (ENS Senior Recruitment & Compliance Officer), I would like to use this opportunity to say a big thank you for taking your good time in dealing with my application. Thank you Maria once again for helping me get out of unemployment, I sincerely appreciate all the effort and support you gave me during this period.
