Meet Tom

I’ve been at Opus now more than 8 years, so I’ve been fortunate enough to see the growth from a small room crowded around one table to the really successful global recruitment business that we are today. It’s been a really exciting journey so far and it’s FAR from over!

My background is technical IT recruitment and I was a fairly decent consultant, after a few years of billing I discovered my love for helping develop the next generation of superstars, this is now where I get my real kicks from, from helping to coach and train senior consultants/ team leads to being a part of someone doing their first ever deal.

I work in the Bristol office, I’m happy to say I’m a really proud Bristolian, find me a better city, it has great pockets of culture, excellent events like the harbour and balloon festivals and it’s great for food, from my picture you can see I like food.

For me and the team it’s really important that we provide superb service for both our clients and candidates, relationships are key and I encourage meeting the people we work with as much as possible. Internally I promote working in an honest environment where everyone feels happy and supported even when we experience those tough days. I’m also really passionate about developing people within their careers.
