Our people

Christian Lewis

Team Leader

L&D at Opus is superb. It’s really interactive, so you can actually see your progress on a daily basis.

There are many employers out there... What made you choose Opus?

I did a lot of research into various recruitment companies, and Opus came out on top in every aspect. There was only one choice!

Tell us what you think about our company culture.

The culture is like no other! We all work hard, collaborate and enjoy ourselves, every single day.

Tell us a bit about your role…

I’m a Team Leader and also specialise in Java recruitment across the South East. I also mentor my less experienced Java team members.

What do you get up to on a typical day?

Speak with the top Java talent in the South East – via phone, email and LinkedIn, and also engage with the top employers in the region.

What’s the best thing about working here?

The incentives/commission are obviously up there. However, the best thing about Opus is genuinely loving your work every day!

What’s your opinion on our L&D?

L&D at Opus is superb. It’s really interactive, so you can actually see your progress on a daily basis. It never stops either – whether you’re a trainee or director, you still receive tailor-made training keep you at the top of your game.

What are the two most important things you’ve taken away from training?

1. Process is king: Stay disciplined with how you recruit and the results will come.

2. Resilience: Not everything comes off first time. Keep at it!

What incentivises you at work?

Money – Our market leading commission structure has helped me buy a house and get engaged in 2017!

Incentives – Trips to Ibiza, Cheltenham Races & Monthly Lunch Clubs.

What's been your biggest achievement?

Two promotions in my first year of recruitment, and also aiding two of my Java team in hitting their promotions.

What do you think makes someone successful at Opus?

Hard work, asking for advice and buying into the culture. If you enjoy work, then you naturally perform to a high standard.

To anyone thinking about applying, what would you tell them?

Just do it. By all means, do your research beforehand, but I’m confident that Opus will come out on top every time! I was previously in a well-paid job but wanted more; joining Opus was by far the best decision I’ve ever made.

What do you do in your spare time?

I’m a Bristol City season ticket holder, home or away I’m there.
