  5. 5. IT Recruitment Specialists Expertly Servicing the Needs of the IT IndustryOur structureWe believe in specialization and therefore Opus is split into two key divisions– Contract and Permanent Recruitment. Opus Recruitment Solutions Board Darren Ryemill—Managing Director Sales Support Client Relationship Management Contract Recruitment Permanent Recruitment This ensures that our consultants are only dealing with the specific candidate type you are after – meaning we have long and established, close relationships with the market leading contractors and permanent candidates alike. The Sales Support and Client Relationship management team works alongside both contract and permanent recruitment to ensure that you are provided with administrational, legal and financial advice and support. This guarantees the smooth running of the recruitment process and our efficiently handled client enquiries enables our consultants to concentrate fully on your recruitment needs. 5
  6. 6. IT Recruitment Specialists Expertly Servicing the Needs of the IT IndustryThe contract teamThe Contract team is headed by Ryan Speed, who oversees teams of contractconsultants and contract resourcers. Ryan Speed – Head of Contract Recruitment Team of Contract Consultants Team of Contract Resourcers Software Network- Senior Ap- Engineer- ing & Infra- Databases / pointments ing structure CRM/ERP Each Recruitment Consultant and Resourcer in both Contract and Permanent Teams is focused entirely within a “vertical market”; whether it be Software Engineering, Infrastructure, Support and Networking, Senior Appointments, Databases, CRM’s or ERP’s etc. This means that every time a candidate is presented to a client by Opus Recruitment, a market specialist has technically screened and briefed the candidate on the role. This matrix organisation has the ability to “scale up” our resources to provide fast market coverage for urgent requirements. 6
  7. 7. IT Recruitment Specialists Expertly Servicing the Needs of the IT IndustryThe permanent teamThe Permanent team is headed by Nigel Ramana, who oversees teams of Permanentconsultants and Permanent resourcers. Nigel Ramana – Head of Permanent Recruitment Team of Permanent Consultants Team of Permanent Resourcers Software Network- Senior Ap- Engineer- ing & Infra- Databases / pointments ing structure CRM/ERP Each Client has its own dedicated account manager so that you have a single point of contact. Our specialist consultants from both Permanent and Contract teams will feed into your account manager so that we can ensure that there will be “specialist” consultants screening candidates. Therefore, Opus can ensure that candidates are screened on both a technical basis from a specialist consultant and a compatibility basis from your account 7
  8. 8. IT Recruitment Specialists Expertly Servicing the Needs of the IT IndustryOur edgeOPUS RECRUITMENT SOLUTIONS follows three basic principles that support our outlook byproviding the right staff, in the right time, in a cost effective way. WE DO THIS BY… 1. IT MARKET SPECIALISTS: TECHNOLOGY FOCUSED SPECIALIST CONSULTANTS 2. ONE POINT OF CONTACT – ACCOUNT MANAGEMENT 3. MATRIX ORGANISATION – SCALABLE TEAMS 4. DELIVERY FOCUSED – RISK FREE SERVICE 5. HIGHLY SCREENED CANDIDATES 6. UNLIMITED AND UNPARALLELED MARKET EXPOSURE AND CANDIDATE POOL 7. FLEXIBILITY FOR YOU, COMPLIANCE WITH YOU AND THE LAW! 8. EXPERIENCED AND INCENTIVISED “CAREER” RECRUITMENT CONSULTANTS 9. LOCAL NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL; FOCUS 10. FRESH APPROACH, STABLE BUSINESS MODEL 11. CLIENT LOYALTY SCHEMES 8
  9. 9. IT Recruitment Specialists Expertly Servicing the Needs of the IT IndustryspecialistOPUS RECRUITMENT SOLUTIONS are an IT focused company; we spend 100% of our timesourcing candidates for clients operating within the IT market. IT SPECIALIST This specialization enables us to be at the cutting edge of the information technology recruitment market. We believe in specialization and therefore Opus is PERM/CONTRACT split into two key divisions – Contract and SPECIALIST Permanent Recruitment. This ensures that our consultants are only dealing with the specific candidate type you are after – meaning we have long and established, close relationships with the ACCOUNT market leading contractors, yet also have MANAGER consultants who are able to identify excellent VERTICAL MARKET CONSULTANT candidates searching for Permanent work. However the specialisation does not end there. Each consultant is focused entirely within a “vertical market”, whether it be Microsoft SPECIALIST MARKET Development Technologies, OpenSource CANDIDATE BASED TEAM Development, Support and Networking, Senior Appointments, Databases, ERP’s, Website design and development, the Public Sector, etc, etc. This means that every time a candidate isNICHE/SPECIFIC/REVELANT presented to a client by Opus a market specialist CANDIDATE has technically screened and briefed the candidate on the role. 9
  10. 10. IT Recruitment Specialists Expertly Servicing the Needs of the IT IndustryOne point of contactWe also believe that understanding the needs of a client, their core values, the type of“team fit”, etc is of paramount importance when it comes to finding “the right” candidatefor an organization. In fact, it is the biggest single frustration our clients have reported back to us regarding their experience of recruitment agencies is that they often end up dealing with numerous people at an agency, ultimately resulting in a “dilution” of the understanding of the company values, recruitment methods, policies, etc. We have negated this by ensuring that each every client is assigned a single point of contact. This “Account Manager” is responsible for all communications and dealings with the client – meaning that our understanding of your needs is improved with every vacancy we recruit for – but more importantly that valuable information is not then lost. 10
  11. 11. IT Recruitment Specialists Expertly Servicing the Needs of the IT IndustryScalable teams Risk free The unique way we are structured enables us to have a dynamic and flexible “scaling” of resource to help work with our clients to maximize market coverage quickly when an urgent requirement needs filling, or during larger scale recruitment campaigns. From Senior Consultants to Resourcers alike we have the flexibility to respond quickly and focus on delivering the candidates you want in the volume and timescales you require. Opus Recruitment Solutions were born out of the theory that recruitment services should be a risk free process. If you choose not to employ any of the candidates we present to you then should not pay. This means that we place “delivery” at the very top of our agenda and we realize that it is only in finding you the BEST people for your vacancy that we get any financial recompense. This means you have a risk free service where you only pay if our “delivery” is second to none and ultimately we fill your requirement with the most suitable candidate on the market. 11
  12. 12. IT Recruitment Specialists Expertly Servicing the Needs of the IT IndustryHighly screened candidates We believe that this is where we add the most value to our clients! At Opus we know that recruitment is not just about “finding a good CV”. That is why before any application is made through Opus a candidate will have had at least 2 screening interviews, both technical – where a technical market specialist will discuss his skills in relation to the job, but also and arguably even more importantly – your “account manager” will ensure that they are a fit to what the company is looking for in terms of soft skills, career aspirations, core values, etc…. We value this highly because we listen when our clients tell us that skills can be learnt but attitude and core values are fundamental requirements of WHAT WE DO: the right employees. We also believe in making  At least 2 screening interviews sure the candidate completely understands the  A technical fit interview role and the company ethos – meaning the  A “company fit” interview “right” candidates are excited and the “wrong”  Technical tests (online or in candidates do not pursue the opportunity further. classroom)*  Face to Face interviews* It doesn’t end there however – as we ALWAYS  References* request professional references from candidates  Accreditation check* during the screening process.  Right to work check*  Candidate briefing *Subject to agreed working practices 12
  13. 13. IT Recruitment Specialists Expertly Servicing the Needs of the IT Industrymarket exposure candidate poolWe have many unique and exclusive relationships withmarket leading candidates of all skill types. Often thesecandidates would have worked with us previously orhave been “referred” to us directly. Our position as a“exclusive” agent for them means that they are onlylooking for work through ourselves.Linked to this fact, an amazing 70+% of our placementsare made from candidates held on our in house, marketleading database. Some 50,000 live IT candidates (alladded and or updated in the last year) are held on thisdatabase which is unique to Opus RecruitmentSolutions and as we are independent this notaccessible to any other agency.In addition to this, we operate a “unlimited” attitude to both advertising and subscribing to onlinedatabases. This see’s us utilize all of the market leading job boards and websites such asMonster, Jobsite, Jobserve, CWJobs, The ITJobBoard, PurelyIT and many, many more.And then there is the “networking” aspect that comes from having consultants specializing invertical markets – referrals, headhunting and our reputation mean that we are able to accesscandidates that aren’t even necessarily “on the market” or looking for work.Altogether we have a candidate pool that we believe is second to none in the IT Recruitment field.We have both a local focus in order to provide the best local candidates but where necessary wehave access to the leading candidates both nationally and internationally. 13
  14. 14. IT Recruitment Specialists Expertly Servicing the Needs of the IT IndustryFlexibility and the law experienced consultants As an independent dynamic agency we pride ourselves on our ability to be flexible to work with our clients in the way that they want. This flexibility ensures that we can embrace your working practices – rather than dictate ours like some agencies. We have a 100% compliance rate with our clients, always hitting our SLA’s and more importantly working in the way the way! In addition we also have legally approved, IR35 friendly, contracts and client terms and conditions – ensuring you can be confident with our service. We view recruitment as a delivery based industry – not a sales based industry like many of our competitors. Therefore we look to employ career recruitment professionals, not “wide” sales consultants. As a result our Recruitment Consultants are put through our award winning “Academy” where they receive industry leading training. The average amount of experience our Account Managers have is over 5 years of IT Recruitment Experience – meaning they are committed to the profession and committed to meeting client and candidate expectations. In addition, we believe that “going the extra mile” is what sets us apart. Therefore, our consultants are highly incentivized to “fill” vacancies meaning they are often seen working late into the evening and weekends to leave no stone unturned. 14
  15. 15. IT Recruitment Specialists Expertly Servicing the Needs of the IT IndustryLocal, national, international loyalty schemes Our Head Office is based in Bristol but from here we support clients located throughout the UK, Europe and Worldwide. We have a network of satellite offices throughout the UK meaning that whatever the location we have a “local” office to provide interview rooms, recruitment days, assessment centres, meetings, debriefs, etc. With our beginnings dating back to 2004 Opus are an established and stable player in the very competitive IT Recruitment Sector. However, we have retained a “freshness” and a desire to grow organically through our delivery to clients, culminating in a restructure and rebranding at the start of 2008… meaning that Opus brings you the best of both worlds. We run a number of client loyalty schemes – rewarding and thanking our clients for their excellent business. Such reward have included gifts, Spa days, Sporting events, etc. Please ask for more details. 15
