Opus Ranked Top 5 in LinkedIn Awards for Social Engagement


Opus Recruitment Solutions has been recognised as a Top 5 Medium Business within the EMEA region in LinkedIn’s Most Socially Engaged Staffing Agencies 2016.

This is a huge achievement for the global IT recruitment firm, who now have amassed a LinkedIn following of over 40,000 technology industry professionals as a result of social engagement strategies developed through Opus’ dedication to supplying a quality service to clients and candidates.

The award recognises companies which, according to the professional social network, are “most effectively using LinkedIn to engage potential candidates and clients”. To determine the definitive ranking for this year, LinkedIn assessed 60,000 staffing agencies based on social reach, employee engagement, employment brand and content marketing.

Companies who have succeeded in making it onto the list have been sorted according to their size and region of operation, with Opus being placed as a Top 5 Medium Business in the EMEA region.

Nigel Ramana, Group Managing Director – Europe, comments,

“This is an incredible achievement and great recognition for how engaged our consultants are with their market. It’s so important to be building strong relationships with clients and candidates both on and offline, so we are really pleased with this result.”

The top-ranking winners will feature in a live webcast on 20 October to answer questions from virtual attendees and discuss their own take on successful social recruiting strategies.
