Ingeus was founded in 1989 by Thérèse Rein. It was initially a small rehabilitation company called Work Directions. The company now has over 150 offices in UK, France, Sweden, Korea, Germany, Switzerland, Poland, Australia, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and New Zealand with more than 1,700 employees. In 2002 the company was rebranded as Ingeus.[3] [2][1]

Thérèse Rein remains the Managing Director of Ingeus Group today, and is based in the Australian head office. She announced the sale of the Australian arm of Ingeus in May 2007 when her husband, Kevin Rudd, became Leader of the Opposition (and later Prime Minister of Australia) to ensure there was no perceived conflict of interest. The Australian businesses sold in October and December 2007. In October 2011 Ingeus acquired Assure Programs, an organisational development and employee assistance provider.[3] [2][1]

The Ingeus Board consists of David Gonski AC, Chair, Garry Hounsell, Director, Thérèse Rein, Executive Director and Greg Ashmead, Executive Director.

In 2010 Ingeus UK ranked 38th in The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For 2010 – the largest independent assessment of employers in the UK
