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.

The fight for female empowerment and equality was not won a century ago, and is still not won today, as we can see from the debates that have dominated the past year – from Harvey Weinstein to the gender pay gap. However, we’d like to say THANK YOU to the women that fought to open the door for women to have a voice and opportunities that were neither heard or available a hundred years ago… #ThisIsOpus #100years #Suffragette100
