Having worked with James at Opus Resourcing for many years, I can highly recommend his recruitment services. He has sourced some great people for me to fill both permanent and contract roles. He is always communicative and eager to progress roles, without being pushy. He invests in understanding the organisation, as well as the role open for recruitment, to help source quality candidates.

I would not be with Benefex if it weren't for James. He was very thorough and thoughtful in selecting me as a candidate for the Director of Partnerships position.
He did an excellent job aligning my wants & needs with the role. He was very professional and did a fantastic job preparing me and keeping me informed throughout the entire process.
I can't thank James at Opus enough.

When James with Opus Resourcing reached out to me, I wasn't in the market for a new position. But he had something available in the US he thought would be a great fit and he was right. I was nervous to say the least, but James was with me every step of the way, coaching me through the transition and hiring process. I'm very excited about the future and can't thank James and Opus Resourcing enough for helping me get here!

I had spent a 6.5 years working in a specific sector of the technology industry and decided it was time to take on a new challenge. Opus assisted me in taking my existing skills and experience and marketing them effectively toward the job
that I wanted.
James worked with me every step of the way from my CV / cover letter, providing timely updates, and fighting alongside me to negotiate an extremely competitive package. His expertise in the technology jobs market and thoughtful advice were critical to me securing a leadership position with a highly respected player in the sports betting technology space.
