The MCG Group has acquired recruitment business Jenrick Group, which has offices in Derby, Northamptonshire, and Surrey.
Jenrick Group has built a wide range of expertise over its 55-year history, with specific focus on supplying highly experienced contract, interim and permanent personnel within the technology, engineering and commercial sectors.
The acquisition of Jenrick Group comes as part of The MCG Group’s five-year plan which sees the company continue on a growth trajectory through organic and acquisition expansion. Within the last three months The MCG Group has also acquired RP International, which recruits leadership and highly-skilled technology talent for companies around the globe, and Sixth Sense – an independent training company based in central Scotland.
With nearly 350 employees across MCG Group, it offers recruitment, consultancy and project-based solutions within construction, education, healthcare and technology sectors across the UK and internationally via its 9 global offices.
Colm McGinley, CEO of The MCG Group, said of the acquisition: “It’s been an exciting couple of months at The MCG Group as we’ve acquired some fantastic businesses and welcomed them into our Group. We have some hugely ambitious plans for our Group and with Jenrick on board I’m confident we’ll see further growth and expansion into our new business sectors.”
Simon Murphy, CEO of Jenrick Group, said: “Finding the perfect custodian for the business, someone who had a similar culture to ours and valued the employees as much as we do, was our primary focus. Upon meeting Colm at MCG, we believed we had found that and in meeting the rest of his team, we are equally convinced.
“Whilst it is with sadness that my personal chapter of the Jenrick history is coming to a close, I am excited to see what the next part of the story looks like. I am in no doubt that the company will continue to flourish and those within the business will continue to enjoy a wonderful working environment, which allows them to grow both professionally and personally.”
