The Freedom Beginning
Founded in 1996 with an entrepreneurial management buyout from Yorkshire Electricity, Freedom has grown significantly with over 1,000 employees and twenty offices in the UK and Western Europe. We are a major part of our parent company, EnServe Group and as such benefit from belonging to a wider electricity infrastructure and facilities services business.
Our end-to-end approach brings many benefits to our clients and it allows us to add value to our customers’ operations, thereby delivering real customer service. We have many longstanding customer relationships, indeed our grounds maintenance contract with Yorkshire Water may be the longest continuous maintenance contract in the UK utilities market.
Freedom is seeing a growth in opportunities with customers outside the traditional utility, nuclear and renewable energy sectors, both in the UK and in Western Europe. At the forefront is: construction and property, transport infrastructure, industrial and manufacturing, technology and the public sector.
Freedom recruits, trains and develops its employees in a wide variety of disciplines. From highly technical electrical, civil and security system engineers and designers, to field staff maintaining and installing electrical equipment, overhead lines and underground cabling – the skill range is immense.
As well as finance, IT, HR, procurement, business development and other commercial functions, we have specialists in such disciplines as aerial and below ground surveying, inspections and mapping as well as emergency call-out teams in case of storm damage to power supplies, for example.
The opportunities for training, development and advancement are there for the best in the industry to develop a great career with Freedom. We’ll take care of it.
