About Us

Our Story

Formed in 2005 in London, Opus rapidly became established as one of the UK’s leading Architecture & Interior Design recruitment firms. We opened our New York office in 2007, and quickly replicated our success. Today, we work from offices in New York and Los Angeles with a fantastic variety of design firms, finding them top talent on a direct hire, permanent basis.

We develop long term relationships with our clients so that we fully understand their hiring issues and business needs. This means that we are able to find top quality talent who will really add value to their organization in the long term. Unlike other recruitment firms, we do not provide temporary/consulting staff, because the majority of our candidates are people that we headhunt on behalf of our clients. We develop close relationships with all of our prospective candidates and active job seekers so that we can provide detailed career advice and help them to make the right move to the right company.

We are experts in our field and our market knowledge is excellent. We have over 70 years combined experience of recruiting in our industries globally and provide first class talent to some of the world’s leading companies. We strive to understand the business strategy and culture of every organization we work with to fulfill all expectations, ensuring each vacancy is filled with the very best candidate.
