    Pros

    Commission scheme - make sure you have everything logged correctly because they will try every way possible to get out of paying commission. Especially if you were to leave. They will try to claw back commission that was paid months ago even though the candidate is still happily working with your client.

    Cons

    - The way the business perceives itself on social media is nothing like the way it operates on a day to day basis. - Good luck seeing a Manager pick up the phone and do a business development call. It’s a race to get as hands off as possible and dictate orders of how much activity you should be doing rather then showing how it is done. - High KPI’s with no understanding of why. No awareness that business trends have changed in the last 20 years. There is a mentality of “keep doing it the way we do it because this is the way we have always done it”. - Consultants are encouraged to perform duties in an unethical way to get the deal done. Management don’t care about clients or candidates, they only care about making placements. - I heard on several occasions by several managers and directors that they could not care less about clients. If you are a Consultant that wants to treat clients right... don’t join Opus. You won’t have the opportunity to do that here.

    Pros

    Having worked ins sales for over 6 years with majority of them in recruitment I could not speak highly enough abut how Opus Talent Solutions have welcomed me into the business and teams. The recruitment industry doesn't get a great name at times but the incentives, benefits, commission structure here at Opus are one of the highest/best I've seen. Loads of companies will offer these incentives for staff but Opus actually make it achievable for consultants to go on them, monthly lunch clubs, quarterly trips to Barcelona, Menorca, Lisbon, day out at the races and these are just the January ones. The incentive are literally second to none. The atmosphere in the office is of course professional but fun at the same time. Despite the recruitment role itself being stressful and high pressured at times - i've not once felt uneasy or stressed to be at work as the atmosphere, support and culture is great. Free onsite gym, free fruit is also a nice touch!

    Cons

    there isn't any so N/A

    Pros

    A genuinely fantastic working environment whereby you truly get out what you put in. I've been at Opus for just over a year and after superb training and support I've achieved 2 promotions already. The commission structure is market-leading and incentives fantastic.

    Cons

    There are no cons that spring to mind!

    I have been working at Opus Talent Solutions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I’ve read some of the reviews on here and I’m a little baffled, must have been the people that say they want to be successful but don’t actually want to do the work or listen to advice of people around them. My experiences have been nothing but positive. It’s evident that Opus really invested in us. We all have LinkedIn recruiter account, all major job boards, multiple in-house trainers, they also encourage us to get out and meet our clients as much as possible. But if we are too busy they have business development managers that will go on the road for us. Anything that makes our job easier or saves us time they invest in. The quality within the office is second to none, when I went to interviews before I joined “top billers” at other companies wouldn’t have got into the top 10 in the Bristol office. The commission structure was also the best around and no thresholds!

    Cons

    Don’t hire the people that are content with being average.

    I have been working at Opus Talent Solutions

    Pros

    I didn't know what to expect when I started as a fresh grad with zero sales experience but looking back it was potentially the best decision of my life to date. In 12 months I've been promoted twice to Senior Consultant and am seen as a really valued employee where my ideas and input is noted and acted on which for someone with one years experience is rare to find. I now also mentor a newbie which again is responsibility that I relish and gives me great job satisfaction. In regards to money, every agency will promise great return for your hard-work and Opus lead the market in respect to this. In 2 Months I earned what some of my other graduate friends did in a year (seriously that's not an exaggeration). It's easily the best aspect of the job and allows me to not worry financially which is great especially with the ridiculous student loans I pay back.

    Cons

    I would say the hours are long but they feel a lot shorter than any retail job I had before. Time literally flies by

    "Opus Professional Services Group"

    I have been working at Opus Talent Solutions full-time

    Pros

    The Opus Professional Services Group is the Best recruitment Consultancy to work for in the country (The Sunday Times Best Companies to Work For 2015) headquartered in the heart of Bristol (The Independent Most liveable cities in the UK). Need I say more? Opus as a business continually strives to better itself by developing its employees – whether that’s through investment in cutting edge technology and social media services, or world class training provided by dedicated on-site trainers or external consultants. The primary way in which Opus develops its staff however, is the provision of incentives and a truly meritocratic working environment. For those that want to achieve, commission is set at a market-leading 38%, with bonuses and car allowances - and that’s without taking into account the myriad weekly and monthly incentives on offer! The growth of the business to this level in a relatively short period of time is to my mind attributable to winning formula of hiring dedicated and ambitious trainees providing them with the support and tools to allow them to achieve and then motivating them to continually better themselves.

    Cons

    With over 30% of employees earning over £100,000 a year, it will come as no surprise to learn that it’s not easy – if it was everyone would do it! Recruitment is a challenging field, and you will need to be continually pushing yourself. As daunting as it may seem at first, working in an environment with motivated and ambitious colleagues means that you’ll never feel that you’re the only striving for more, and when the results of your hard work do come through, you’ll not only be pleased with the recognition and material rewards, but also a sense of pride in having achieved more than you thought possible.

    I have been working at Opus Talent Solutions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I started at Opus as a Trainee Consultant with no experience, the training has been fantastic and I have since progressed to Senior Recruitment Consultant. The company is rapidly expanding which opens loads of new opportunities too - both internationally and in management. We have a great commission scheme where we can earn up to 35% of billings plus loads of incentives: I've been to michelin star restaurants, won spa days and gone on a company trip to Portugal!

    Cons

    Recruitment is hard work with long hours but if you put the work in, you'll soon benefit from the commission!

    I have been working at Opus Talent Solutions full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I’ve recently joined Mclean Ross having worked for another recruitment company for 18 months and I’ve been surprisingly impressed on how BETTER things are. It's great to work for a small company which has that support from Opus to ensure we are best equipped to do our job and that’s what we get at Mclean Ross. The commission structure is set up to allow anyone who is driven to earn a lot of money to achieve those goals! This is currently being done by consultant who are in the 20s!!! Opus / McLean Ross is made up of people from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures and this is very pleasing to see. I am at the driving seat of my own career and with the support from Mclean Ross and Opus I am confident I can achieve my goals.

    Cons

    The hours can be long, however if you ask someone who has achieved any sort of success for their “recipe for success” 9 times out of 10 they’ll say Hard Work!
