The 7th July 2017 saw Opus Professional Services Group’s offices gather together from all round the globe to celebrate the achievements from the first half of the year.
The day began with a Conference held at the Watershed where the business discussed the successes of the first half of the year, as well as, what to expect for the second half.
After the conference staff were whisked off to Chew Valley Lake, Somerset for an all day festival, also known as Opus Fest. They were greeted on arrival with glasses of Pimms and local Somerset Cider, in addition to a Lanyard which contained a site map, itinerary of the day and food tokens for a Hog Roast, fish & chips and UNLIMITED Ice-cream. The venue, four giant Tipis had a stunning back drop of the lake and was the perfect spot to set the scene for the day ahead.
The festival also had team building activities for all staff to get involved in; Tug of War, Human Football Table, Bouncy Castle, Rounders, Giant Connect 4, Giant Snakes and Ladders, Giant Jenga, Sumo Wrestling and a Bungee Run. In true festival style, there was also the opportunity for them to camp and glamp overnight. Live music entertainment was provided by up and coming Hip-Hop and Neo-Soul band Population: 7, Bristol based Reggae and Street Soul band Laid Blak, finished off with a DJ set by DJ Bunjy.
Managing Director of Opus Recruitment Solutions, Nigel Ramana said “It was an amazing all day event with no expenses spared, to celebrate a good year so far. With lots of entertainment, fun and games to help build on our already team spirit and collaboration”.
Eanna Barry, Principal Recruitment Consultant at Opus Recruitment Solutions commented “We do things differently here at Opus – we’re not your typical boring corporate”.
We’re already looking forward to next year’s Opus Fest!
