Why Choose a job with Opus?
- Our consultants are non-commission based which allows them the freedom to work with your best interests in mind.
- You will never be pressured into applying for a role that doesn’t suit you; we will take the time to work with you to establish exactly what you require from your next job and find you exactly.
- We are wholly owned by Suffolk County Council and return a dividend back to the Council each year, so by working through Opus you are helping to ensure that money spent in the public sector stays in the public sector, rather than being lost into the private sector via other agencies.
