Ingeus is a company founded on helping people to realise their potential.
Thérèse Rein - Founder
The Ingeus Group evolved from a small rehabilitation company founded by Thérèse Rein, called Work Directions that commenced operations in Australia in 1989.
Work Directions Australia quickly established a reputation for inspiring people who were cut off from work due to disability, illness or injury, by assisting them to address the physical and psychological aspects of their condition and helping them back to work.
In the 1990s, this expertise was adapted to provide individually tailored and enabling services to assist people who were on unemployment benefits back into work. Services were subsequently expanded to include nationally accredited training, labour hire and recruitment services.
In 2002, we took our unique approach to assisting those people most isolated from the labour market to the United Kingdom and later re-branded as Ingeus.
Our success in Australia and the United Kingdom, led to the group partnering with governments and their agencies in France, Germany, Sweden, South Korea and Switzerland. We take pride in delivering services that make a genuine difference to people's lives, including employment and health programmes, services for young people, training and skills support, and probation services.
In 2011, we re-entered Aust ralia with the acquisition of Assure Programs, a business psychology organisation specialising in organisational development and employee assistance programs throughout Australia and New Zealand.
In 2014 Ingeus became part of Arizona-based human services provider Providence Service Corporation. Since then we have further diversified including into UK health, probation and youth services and into new countries such as the USA, Canada and Singapore.
In 2018 Ingeus was acquired by the APM Group.
