Our people

Nile Haskins

Accounts Assistant

It’s a great place to work, both from a business and finance perspective as well as the social life on offer. It’s interesting to see how a fast-growing company evolves.

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

I applied for a role in the Opus finance team because it seemed like a great company to progress both academically and professionally. After meeting the team, I was sure that this was the right place for me. Not to mention all the awards Opus has won over the past decade.

Tell us what you think about our company culture.

It’s unlike anything I’ve experienced before. Everyone is so invested in the Opus way of life, and it’s hard not to get caught up in it. Although everyone works very hard here, there is not one point in the day when someone isn’t laughing.

Tell us a bit about your role…

As an Accounts Assistant, I have many different responsibilities, such as bookkeeping, internal company statistics, accounts payable, liaising with international accountants and intercompany reconciliations.

What do you get up to on a typical day?

There is no typical day; every day is different. I have set roles that I try to complete every day, but in such a fast-paced sales environment spanning three continents, you have to keep on your toes and deal with everything that comes your way.

What’s the best thing about working here?

There is never a dull moment in the office, the place is constantly buzzing and people are always in high spirits. It’s an environment that makes coming to work an enjoyable experience. You’re always challenged to do better and work harder, which really helps with keeping your job fresh.

What’s your opinion on our L&D?

I have found the learning and development very rewarding at Opus. I’ve been able to not only acquire the relevant skills to complete my job, but also have the opportunity to change internal processes to make the business run more efficiently.

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

Unlike the recruitment consultants, I don’t take part in the award-winning training on offer. That being said, my team has been great at training me.

What incentivises you at work?

For me, I’ve never been highly incentive-driven. I get a lot of satisfaction out of problem-solving which is often a big part of my job.

That being said, at Opus you are rewarded for your achievements and hard work. Most notably within the operations team, there’s the opportunity to attend Lunch Club, whereupon the month’s highest achievers across the region take half-a-day off work to go for lunch and drinks in a prestigious venue, all expenses paid.

What's been your biggest achievement?

My biggest achievement at work has been my overall progression and the development of my skill set. I’ve seen progress in all aspects of my role, including changing the internal processes to make operations run smoother.

What do you think makes someone successful at Opus?

To be successful at Opus, you have to be driven, motivated and not afraid of hard work. You will be rewarded.

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

It’s a great place to work, both from a business and finance perspective as well as the social life on offer. It’s interesting to see how a fast-growing company evolves. I’ve only been here for one year, but so many aspects of my role have already changed, and you have to adapt to suit business needs.

What do you do in your spare time?

Before joining Opus, I used to perform in live bands across the UK, so I like to keep that hobby alive by writing and recording music whenever I can. I also enjoy cooking, exercising and photography.
