We provide global hiring solutions across a number of niche sectors. Our fast-track growth has been recognised by a variety of awards and accolades. While we might all service different industries, we all share the same vision; to become a global leader in specialist niche and innovative recruitment solutions.


Set up in 2008, we are the parent company to a number of recruitment services in a variety of niche sectors.

Our core values are integral to everything we do. They are:

Hard Work -the absolute bedrock of what we believe in.  Do not cut corners; do not take the “easy option”.  Always do what it takes to succeed, never any less.  Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration. 

Delivering Excellence to our Clients and Candidates – Recruitment is a delivery based industry.  We must deliver at a level that sets us apart, or we will fail.

A Driven, Ambitious, Professional Approach - By identifying and harnessing our individual ambitions we can pull together to achieve corporate excellence. 

Improve – Never settle.  There is always more, always better, always tomorrow. 

Integrity – Lets do what we say and be the Recruitment Consultancy that sets the standard of the Industry

Be Proud, Positive and Have Fun – Life is short.  We work hard to achieve the best we can, but we should never lose sight of the fact we should enjoy ourselves, be proud of what we do and achieve, and always retain a positive attitude.  Let’s enjoy the journey.

Inspire – Be a positive influence to others.  Help others achieve their full potential

    I have been working at Opus Professional Services Group full-time (More than 3 years)


    I have worked for Opus for 4 years starting as a trainee, going through the ranks to a Principal Consultant with many success stories along the way. Hard work and dedication is rewarded and nothing goes unnoticed with the senior management team even as the company grows to the levels it has now. The company strives to be bigger and better than its competition every single day and in my opinion gives every person that joins the platform they need to become whoever they want to be by giving them the very best tools the industry has to offer to succeed. The company has grown from around 25 people to 250+ in the 4 years I have been there but even with such high levels of growth they have stayed well grounded and leave no stone unturned in their exploits to become the global leader in the recruitment game. Opus are innovators in the recruitment space and there is certainly no other company I would rather work for as every day is different, the people are amazing and new opportunities are forever arising giving their employees the chance to further expand their earning potential and career. With Darren Ryemill at the helm, the company can achieve whatever it desires as he is probably the most aspirational and hard working leader I have met and he realises there are no boundaries to what you or Opus can achieve which makes it a very exciting place to work.


    The only "cons" so to speak are that if you aren't willing to work hard it's not the right environment for you. Opus will provide you the platform to become the best version of yourself, but with the high levels of growth and where the company are going, you need to want to achieve the same as everyone else and be on the same page to not be left behind as it's a company that offers a lot of opportunity and can offer you everything you desire as long as you give them hard work and commitment in return. They strive to be the best so you should too!

    Trainee Recruitment COnsultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Opus Professional Services Group (London, England) in July 2016.


    Interviewed by a consultant then director.
    The first involved generic recruitment consultant interview questions and a role play.
    The second was more personal and then regarding my CV. I was disappointed to be turned down after this.
    The reason was because I did not have enough experience or b2b sales...which I understood, but also thought it was ironic as the role advertised is a TRAINEE position! Where it even included a "world class" 12 week training period....
    They should have advertised it without the Trainee title.
