Independent UK business-to-business energy supplier, Opus Energy, has today announced the creation of an extra 100 jobs. This follows the company’s recent feature in The Sunday Times HSBC Top Track 250 league table of the UK’s top mid-market private businesses.
Published on Sunday 16th October, the Top Track 250 league table ranks the UK's mid-market private companies by their sales. Opus Energy’s ranking in the Top Track 250 was achieved through a 31% growth in sales over the previous year; the sales figures for the year up until March 2011 show that Opus Energy achieved £198 million in sales.
Typical Top Track 250 companies are owned and run by entrepreneurs and established families, which have between 100 to 13,000 employees. Opus Energy employs 360 staff at both its Northampton and Oxford offices, but as the business has continued to see rapid growth during the first six months of the 2011 financial year it aims to create 100 new jobs by the end of 2012 to meet demand.
Charlie Crossley Cooke, Managing Director, Opus Energy Ltd, states: “We are extremely pleased with this recognition of our performance over the last year but are now very much focused on the future. We are creating these new jobs to meet our continued level of growth.”
