      Manchester KPI Army Camp

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Working from home. Pay ok salaries in line with market average.

      Cons

      The most KPI heavy environment you will probably ever be apart of within recruitment with constant emails going around about how many calls have been done, cv’s to clients to even fake adverts posted. Also updating managers on a day plan 3 times a day which you have to create before you start work and not in work hours. (This is on top of doing a week plan also). Commission structure poor compared to other agencies in the area. Very old technology used including a database that is very complicated and slow to use. Old school recruitment stuck in the past. High churn and do not value any new ideas or opinions (managers are always right).

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Opus offers a mature working environment (a rare find in the recruitment industry) that provides new consultants with industry leading training and experienced consultants room to grow. The revamped commission structure goes up to 40% and there is no threshold (another rarity in the industry) Most importantly, Opus is always looking for new ways to recruit and support their recruiters.

      Cons

      With more clients and candidates working remotely I think the business will need to look at move flexible working in the future but I am sure the SLT are already working things out.
