Since its formation in 2008, Opus has grown to a $100 million turnover business with 250 staff in seven offices including the UK, Europe, Australia and the US.

Recruitment Entrepreneur thrived and grew swiftly under Amy’s leadership and within three years had 130 staff and a £17 million turnover.

Darren Ryemill said “I’ve built Opus over the last nine years and there was only ever one person that I wanted to run the Group for me and that was Amy. She’s an incredible operator and I know she will take the business into even more successful and exciting areas.”
