Opus Group increase headcount by 33% throughout June and July
The company, whose Headquarters are situated in the heart of Bristol, have not only welcomed a number of trainees and skilled recruitment professionals to the business, but they are pleased to introduce a new Director of IT for their London office, Chris Miles, and Performance and Wellness Director, Glenn Catley.
The Opus Group international offering is seeing its own surge in headcount, doubling both their Australia and Amsterdam teams over June and July. As well as this, Opus will be growing this already strong international presence with confirmed expansion to the US later in 2015.
Their London office has also grown at an impressive rate, and plans to expand it further are at an advanced stage, as the London team is due to double the size of their existing office later this year.
Additionally, the Opus Group have grown their training team to support this UK and international headcount growth. Opus place substantial focus on developing people’s long term careers, with a keen emphasis on professional development within the company.
The company’s headquarters in Bristol continue to work closely with the UWE careers initiative, welcoming three new placement year employees as well as hiring a number of 2015 graduates. As numbers rise, the Bristol office is beginning to outgrow its third floor home and will be expanding into another floor in the building before the end of the year.
After being named the top recruitment company to work for (second overall) on The Sunday Times 100 Best Small Companies to Work for list in March, Opus continue to engage with their workforce to find the most motivating ways that promise results.
The Opus Group have recently been shortlisted for a Recruiter Investing in Talent award for & lsquo;Best Workplace Environment’, as well as one of their consultants being shortlisted for the & lsquo;Best Newcomer’ award. The prestigious industry awards will be taking place on September 17th 2015.

“Our internal training scheme and professional development has allowed us to embed the Opus culture into new hires and has been essential in attracting key hires and in moulding them into highly successful recruitment professionals.”
