Benchmark International is delighted to announce the transaction between East Kilbride-based Sixth Sense and Watford-based MCG.
Established in 2009, Sixth Sense is a national training provider of IT and digital apprenticeships, providing SVQ accredited courses to 140 learners through a direct contract with Skills Development Scotland.
MCG is a recruitment, consultancy and project-based solutions company within aerospace & aviation, construction, education, healthcare, and technology. The company works with, supplies and employs people both in the UK and internationally.
The acquisition is the third by MCG in 12 months, as part of a five-year growth strategy.
Grant Henderson, COO of MCG, said: “The acquisition of Sixth Sense fulfils both a business and personal ambition in increasing our training capability for our internal staff, as well as externally to our valued customers.”
MCG chief executive, Colm McGinley, added: “This is a fantastic opportunity to further broaden the reach and range of the services we can offer, both to our existing and future client base.”
Richard Tasker, co-managing director of Sixth Sense, said MCG’s approach “perfectly fits” its own mission.
Sarah Tasker, also managing director, added: “We feel the MCG Group aligns really well with our own core values and culture.”
