Global recruitment company, the Opus Professional Services Group (, have placed on The Sunday Times 100 Best Small Companies to Work for list with another three star accreditation for the second consecutive year.

Opus took part in the nationally recognised survey by Best Companies for the first time in 2015, and were pleased to be named the top recruitment employer on the list, number two overall.

Following their incredible growth, including more than doubling headcount on the previous year, employees at Opus are ecstatic about the news of making the list for the second time.

Opus have had an impressive year for growth, with multiple new brands and the opening of three more international offices, as well as receiving a number of awards recognising their achievements.

“The past 12 months have been incredible for the Opus Group. We are more devoted than ever to our staff and the opportunities, training and benefits they receive, so it is an honour to be recognised for our ability as an employer.

“The recruitment industry can be a tough game to differentiate yourself against the hundreds of other employers out there. The accreditation is all based on our employees’ feedback and with so many new employees being welcomed to the business in 2015, we are thrilled to receive the highest accreditation possible, as well as making the Sunday Times list for the second year running.”
