Hat Trick of Acquisitions for MCG Group

The Jenrick Group has been acquired by The MCG Group, totalling three acquisitions in the last three months for the international business, as part of its ambitious five-year plan.

The Jenrick Group is a recruitment specialist with offices based in Surrey, Northamptonshire and Derby and our likeminded approach to recruitment makes us a perfect fit for The MCG Group family. The 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.

The MCG Group was recently named as one of ‘The UK's 100 Best Mid-Sized Companies to Work For’ as well as one of ‘Recruitment’s 40 Best Companies to Work For’ by the Best Companies List. With nearly 350 employees across the 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.

Both businesses have a keen focus on workplace culture and acting with a ‘people first’ attitude. Jenrick Group was also recognised as being one of the best companies to work for within the UK, after featuring in the Best Companies to Work for list for three consecutive years.

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.”

Jenrick is renowned for its high service standards and has always had a focused approach to building long-term and enduring business relationships with clients throughout the UK and Europe. It works in partnership with a cross sector of clients across a number of industries, from independent organisations to leading blue-chip companies, its market reputation is renown with quality.  The business provides an exciting addition to the MCG Group that both enhances and adds to MCG’s expansive portfolio of recruitment sectors, that also ties in perfectly with the growth vision for the Group.

The MCG Group has high ambitions and with us on board we look forward to continuing to raise expectation by challenging convention.
