Introducing Opus Energy’s new Northampton headquarters
11th March 2018
We are delighted to announce the opening of our brand new headquarters in the heart of Northampton, a state-of-the art building bringing all 700 of our Northampton team members under one roof.
The new headquarters, known to our employees as ‘Opus Energy House’, took a building with capacity for 1,500 team members, completely refurbished it and made it the new home for many of our teams – including customer service, operations, IT, HR, sales, renewables and business change.
It’s a signal of our company’s flourishing growth, plus a strong investment in the county of Northamptonshire, in which we have been operating for over 15 years.
Opus Energy House joins the existing Cardiff and Oxford offices to galvanise the all-UK based customer service, powering over 315,000 British business sites with gas and electricity.
The opening was marked with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, attended by Nikki Flanders, Chief Operating Officer, and guests of honour, Will Gardiner, CEO of Drax Group, and Paul Griffiths, Chief Executive Northamptonshire Chamber of Commerce.
Nikki Flanders, Chief Operations Officer at Opus Energy, commented: “The building marks a key milestone for Opus Energy and I am delighted to officially open our new headquarters. The new office is the largest investment in our people to date, built to create an energising environment for our teams. We’ve already invested in flexible benefits, free private healthcare and bonus schemes, and now we can also offer our teams a fantastic, state of the art working environment.”
Andrea Leadsom, MP for South Northamptonshire commented: “Opus Energy is one of the region’s leading employers and I am delighted to see investment in local jobs and infrastructure. Northampton is the home of small business with the highest concentration of small businesses in the East Midlands. Leading firms investing in the area are key to this, and we are delighted to have Opus Energy in the region.”
The new office space was specifically chosen due to its ability to best serve our team members – being local and spacious with a modern and sophisticated working environment. The refurbishment has seen some innovative additions, including a wellbeing room and studio to prioritise employee wellness.
Other benefits include a subsidised restaurant, courtyards and a rooftop terrace, as well as plentiful parking, green surroundings, good connections with public transport and a location close to the city centre.
Nikki Flanders concluded: “We embrace our role as an award-winning supplier in the business energy sector and have clear targets to ensure we continue to not only expand, but also to continue to support and energise businesses across the country. We made this investment to help attract the best talent in customer service, IT, smart metering and energy service, so we can in turn continue to provide excellent service to our customers. We’re excited to have moved in!”
