Radically Opus

You don’t get this far, this fast, without taking a radical approach to redefining talent solutions. The rapid growth that this has fuelled makes us the fastest growing tech talent solutions business in the UK. And we have even bigger ambitions. We’re now on our way to achieving world domination. Isn’t it time you joined us?

In 2008, we set out to go places. To not only build a recruitment business but to redefine, evolve and innovate the industry. Just a few years in, we’re established as the fastest growing tech recruitment and talent solutions company in the UK, with four tech-focused sector-specific brands and 250 people in seven offices across the UK, Europe, Australia and the US. And we’re only just warming up.

We’ve established a reputation in recruitment that’s second to none and trusted by blue chips, FTSE 100 companies and SMEs to deliver the people that build their businesses and we’re building on that by broadening our knowledge and deepening our expertise across the entire talent lifecycle.

There’s so much more potential to explore and conquer. If you’ve got what it takes, there’s room for you at the forefront.
