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 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.
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.
As an Accounts Assistant, I have many different responsibilities, such as bookkeeping, internal company statistics, accounts payable, liaising with international accountants and intercompany reconciliations.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
To be successful at Opus, you have to be driven, motivated and not afraid of hard work. You will be rewarded.
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.
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.Back to people index
“To succeed in the finance team, it’s important that you’re a good team player. We all work closely together and get along very well.”
“It’s rare you get to work with people who you would also consider genuine mates outside of work. This helps maintain a positive culture within the team.”
“In my opinion, the best thing about working here is the inclusiveness. Since joining, there hasn’t been a single person who hasn’t been kind or offered to help.”
