Leading independent business energy supplier, Opus Energy, is opening a new office in Cardiff, South Wales, as part of its continuing expansion and development of its customer service and support offering.
Opus Energy celebrated the opening of its new office with a ribbon cutting ceremony on October 10th at Capital Quarter, Cardiff. The opening was attended by several prominent guests, including Rt. Hon. The Lord Mayor of Cardiff, Councillor Monica Walsh, Ken Poole, Head of Economic Development at Cardiff County Council, Andy Nash, Operations Director, Opus Energy, and Nigel Mears, Contact Centre Manager, Opus Energy.
Rt. Hon. The Lord Mayor of Cardiff, Councillor Monica Walsh cut the ribbon at 10.15am, officially declaring the new office open, and gave a short speech.
Opus Energy, founded in 2002, employs more than 750 people in Northampton and Oxford and is sixth largest supplier of gas and electricity to businesses. The company is now bringing its operations to Cardiff, resulting in 100 new jobs over the next 12 months and the possibility for future expansion.
“We’re really excited to be bringing Opus Energy to Cardiff and to build on our commitment to deliver an unparalleled service for our customers” comments Operations Director, Andy Nash. “We are particularly looking forward to moving in to Capital Quarter – a brand new regeneration space in Cardiff – and to finalising our recruitment drive in the local area.”
The home of Opus Energy’s new office, Capital Quarter is Cardiff’s largest redevelopment project. Much of the site is now operational, but once fully complete, the development will house one million square feet of residential, student, office and retail space. By establishing itself in Cardiff’s bustling city centre and within easy reach of the university, Opus Energy has already appointed 19 members of staff and will be undergoing a significant recruitment initiative to hire a full team for its new office.
