Passionate about people in the workplace

Nothing excites us more than the right people, in the right place, doing the right thing. And with recruitment at the heart of our business, including niche brands specialising in specific sectors, we’re well-practised in making that happen. But there’s much more to us. A strategic talent solutions company with a difference, our people are expert, dedicated and excited about delivering solutions across every stage of the talent lifecycle. So much so, they’ve won awards doing it for our clients.

End-to-end talent lifecycle solutions, delivered globally. Told you we were different. Our industry leading clients trust us to deliver truly tailored, bespoke solutions, whatever the sector. And with complete talent management solutions, we do it all, everywhere. But there is no one size fits all approach.

Award-winning is one thing. If that means we do everything well and to the best of our wide-ranging capability, that’s the main thing. So, yes, we’re competitive and, of course, we’re driven. But we don’t set out to win awards. We set out to deliver solutions.

Following the success of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, there has been a huge #PressForProgress over the past year. At Opus, we want to encourage continuity in the change of actions and mindsets. What changes would you like to see and how will you be celebrating women's achievements and progress? #IWD2018 #PressForProgress #ThisIsOpus

It's International Women's Day and what better opportunity to celebrate the global momentum that international movements have inspired. According to the World Economic Forum's 2017 Global Gender Gap Report, gender parity is over 200 years away. Although we have reached the centenary of the first women in the UK securing the right to vote, the fight for pure gender equality is not over. Today we celebrate the movements, but the battle has only just begun. #PressForProgress #IWD2018 #ThisIsOpus


If you’re serious about building a diverse team, it’s imperative to avoid unconscious gender bias in recruitment drives.

What a great evening last night at the West England Cyber Security Meet-Up at the Engine Shed, Bristol.

Look out for the next event which will be announced soon! #ThisIsOpus
