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

    Pros

    Opus offers a mature working environment (a rare find in the recruitment industry) that provides new consultants with industry leading training and experienced consultants room to grow. The revamped commission structure goes up to 40% and there is no threshold (another rarity in the industry) Most importantly, Opus is always looking for new ways to recruit and support their recruiters.

    Cons

    With more clients and candidates working remotely I think the business will need to look at move flexible working in the future but I am sure the SLT are already working things out.

    I have been working at Opus Talent Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    If you actually take the time to give feedback, something is done about it. The best (and cheesiest) thing about the place is the people; I don't feel like a cog in a wheel, or a number, and genuinely feel like people give a damn about each other.

    Cons

    Communication can be a bit rubbish in places, but don't feel like this necessarily an Opus thing, just a general international company one.

  9. "Highest performing specialist agency in Australia, FACT!"

    I have been working at Opus Talent Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Monthly lunch clubs, team incentives and bi-annual incentive trips (Bali, Vegas, Ibiza etc) Monthly commission, no threshold, this means we're earning more than pilots and surgeons after year #1 "Winning" team culture, good banter in office, music and so on Strong recruitment process that is taught from day 1 and works Approachable management/leads - kind of flat structure which is nice

    Cons

    Limited flexibility for consultants that are newer, however this is earnt No Barista on site, we have to make our own coffees

    I worked at Opus Talent Solutions full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    My first graduate job straight from university, I was pleased to have chosen Opus over all the other recruitment consultancies offering as Opus proactively taught and mentored us very effectively. Welcoming culture amongst all colleagues and senior management - I enjoyed my time there thoroughly

    Cons

    Can't think of many cons - possibly not enough holiday days
