Executive Search

Opus Executive Partners have established an international reputation for excellence in Executive Search, advising companies on the appointment of Presidents, CEOs, CFOs, COOs, and Senior Vice Presidents in Exploration, Corporate Development, Production, Corporate Affairs and, Engineering. We excel at identifying, assessing and attracting senior management talent to our clients. Achieving results quickly, skilfully and effectively have made us the partner of choice for our clients.

Our complete commitment to our industry sectors ensures that we can truly understand and meet our clients’ needs by specialising in attracting world-class Board and Senior Management level talent that specifically meet their business requirements. Whatever the board level position, Opus will use their client focused relationship knowledge to offer creative solutions that will build successful leadership teams. Clients that have benefitted from our expertise come from the entire spectrum of the natural resources sector.

Be it a new position, a controlled succession or an emergency placement we know every search assignment is a unique business challenge for our client. Whether your company is growing or undergoing transformation we have the expertise, knowledge and experience to deliver long lasting value. However a global search means exactly that, when working on a client’s needs, no filing cabinet, network or candidate pool can provide a truly extensive search that genuinely meets the client’s needs, that’s not what clients are paying for or expecting.,

We work in partnership to understand your business strategy, goals, values and culture. For each assignment we meet key stakeholders; prepare a detailed assignment brief; identify necessary leadership competencies and management credentials; interview world-class talent from diverse backgrounds; conduct comprehensive due diligence of candidates; negotiate remuneration and benefit packages; and carry out post-appointment evaluations to ensure candidate transition and integration.

We pride ourselves on being good ambassadors for our clients and always represent them in a factual but highly attractive manner, we don’t cut corners and we don’t waste our clients time, our time or the candidate’s time. We know what fits and what doesn’t or won’t. This level of focus ensures that work done for our clients is effective and efficient, investing time and effort where it will benefit the clients needs and moving on and away from everything else that would only serve as a distraction.

"I thought I knew the candidate market well but working with Opus was a good decision. They provided a short list of high calibre candidates all of which would have been great hires. Value for money and excellent results."

"I can wholeheartedly recommend Opus partners. From the beginning of the research process through to offer and acceptance, their service was professional and responsive. The attention to detail went beyond the norm for the sector which undoubtedly contributed to the successful recruitment exercise."

"As the natural resources specialist search firm, Opus Executive Partners did a thorough and very successful job in solving a difficult, unusual, worldwide search for the UKAEA."

Leaders are made, they are not born. They are made by hard effort, which is the price which all of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile.

I love that i think outside the box. There is so much more outside than inside, inside is very limiting for someone like me..


Success is not for the timid. It is for those who seek guidance, make decisions, and take decisive action.
