Ennis & Co broadens skills support

Global automotive and mobility skills search company Ennis & Co has announced an expansion of its services with the establishment of three separate business divisions within a newly formed Ennis & Co Group.

The Ennis & Co Executive Search division will continue the company’s core work of helping many of the world’s leading automotive and mobility brands to appoint their senior leaders.

Alongside this, Ennis & Co Intelligence will provide bespoke research services to identify talent pools for businesses looking to recruit outside the traditional automotive sector or in new locations. It will also provide market insights such as salary trends and competitor analysis.

The third arm of the Group, Ennis & Co Investment, will build on the company’s knowledge of the automotive and mobility market, business know-how and global networks to provide guidance and financial investment for early-stage start-ups. This will be officially launched in early 2024.

Lynda Ennis, Co-Founder and CEO of Ennis & Co Group, said: “We are delighted to offer our clients an expanded portfolio of services, which is very much in response to market demand.

“The combination of a chronic skills shortage and the rapid transformation that is taking place within the industry means businesses are having to look outside the sector or in new locations to find the talent they need. That is not always easy, and more and more of our clients have been engaging us to provide intelligence-based talent research to help them make informed decisions.

“As executive search specialists, we are plugged into the talent market and have valuable real-time data, so it is a natural extension of our business to be able to offer clients a dedicated research service.”
