Opus named on The Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100 for the fourth year

The Opus Professional Services Group celebrate yet again after receiving another nationally recognised and respected award as they are named on the Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 2016, which will be released on Sunday 4th December 2016.

Established in 2008, the global recruitment provider placed on the list at their earliest opportunity in 2012. They then went on to feature on the list again in 2013 followed by their highest 3 year annual compound growth figures in 2014. Although, despite their most incredible performance a late rule change made by the Virgin Fast Track meant they were no longer eligible.

In 2015, the Opus Group went on to exceed expectations and place higher on the list than ever before. With 20,000 recruitment companies in the UK, only 133 have ever made this list with a small handful of just 3 recruitment businesses achieving the desired rate of growth for four years. This makes the Opus Professional Services Group the top performing recruitment business in the UK, with predicted growth figures indicating that they will place on the list for a 5th time in 2017. Their six year consecutive elite performance will make them the fastest growing business in the country ahead of Innocent Smoothies and Spruce Aegis.

CEO of the Opus Professional Services Group, Darren Ryemill, comments, “This is an outstanding achievement for any business in the UK. Anyone who understands compound growth knows that to be listed once is a phenomenal achievement, but to continue that rate of growth over a 5 year period is a huge accomplishment.”

The recruitment specialist has six global offices with more expected to open in 2017. Opus will be making a considerable amount of new hires internationally in 2017. For more information, visit

This will be the 20th Anniversary of the Virgin Fast Track 100; an accolade described by Sir Richard Branson as the “definitive guide to the UK’s fastest growing businesses”.
