    I have been working at Opus Talent Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Opus has always been really fast growing and ambitious and this has shown in the brilliant results. It has always felt like you are part of something special, and that start-up entrepreneurial culture really shows.

    What's been really great recently, is that they have made an effort to make sure that all the positive bits of the culture are filtering down more. I don't think Opus ever had anything but good intentions - but when you are growing so fast and running so hard it's hard to take everyone along with you.

    I think the Leaders of the business have really started thinking about making sure everyone is brought on the journey. The culture, training, experience, comms, policies everything have improved so much. And people now know how much they are valued.

    I've worked at Opus a while, and whilst I always felt that everyone was valued - I could understand why sometimes people didn't realise it - it's hard to go from a small start up to a leading global company. But now I think things are better than ever.

    Cons

    There is always cons to having to work.... :-) and there will always be one off gripes. But the good thing is that it's an environment where you can share your ideas.

    I've worked at a few companies, and I can honestly say with perspective, that it's really good and fair here.

    Advice to Management

    I am really enjoying the new policy changes - the mental health and wellness initiatives have been great, as well as the investment in tech events

    Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bristol, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Opus Talent Solutions (Bristol, England) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Intense! Went in at 10am for a '30 minute informal chat'. Was still there at 4pm having interviewed with the internal recruiter, 2 principle consultants and the director. However at the end of all this they made me an offer so mission accomplished.

    Be prepared for a grilling. There is a very high turnover of staff in recruitment so they want to be sure you can handle the intensity of the job.

    Interview Questions

    • (As a follow up to being asked who I voted for in the last election) In that case, do you think criminals should be allowed to go free?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Handling objections are a huge part of recruitment so make sure you are prepared to fight your corner when they inevitably pick apart what you have told them.
    Also be prepared for a peculiar line of questions when you meet the director, he doesn't follow a traditional line of questioning...
