Opus Talent Solutions

As one of only just three companies to feature on the Virgin Fast Track five years in a row, Opus Talent Solutions understand what it takes to be the best.

Having grown from three people in Bristol to 250 people across four continents and eight offices in just nine years, we are one of the fastest growing firms in the world.

We now work with some incredible companies such as Asos, Bentley, Uber, Blackrock, Bloomberg, Tiffany & Co and Burberry on their talent strategy and recruitment.

The Mission

Opus Talent Solutions is a multiple award winning end-to-end talent consultancy and recruitment firm focussed on technology and innovation. The company’s mission is to be a global leader in niche and innovative talent solutions.

It's no longer enough to think about recruitment as a stand alone service. We work with our clients to map out the entire "customer journey"... for their employees.... From talent attraction, to recruitment, to performance management, staff retention and succession planning.

We have an incredible team of motivated and energetic people who think creatively about solving the global issue of Talent. We are the only place where you can experience the career progression, earning potential and energy of a recruitment career, with the training, and learning potential of a consulting company.

Who we’re looking for

You’re a smart and diligent person who thrives under pressure and has huge ambitions for the future. You’re someone who enjoys building and maintaining relationships with everyone you meet. The word ‘No’ doesn’t stop you, in fact it drives you on. You’re also a creative thinker who can problem solve quickly.

You’re a graduate, you’re motivated both financially and professionally, you’re a competitor.

Sound like you? Read on.
