“My experience with Opus has been one of complete success. Moira contacted me on a position and was fantastic in guiding me through the process very quickly. I was surprised at the speed of the interview process and how quickly an offer was made. I have also had the pleasure of being a client and working with Gina.

“Moira and her team know the Food Science field better than any other firm out there. OPUS was my “go to” firm for all research & development and quality assurance search while I worked with Rich’s. They provide the best value in terms of quality, depth and span of relationships, managing the candidate and hiring manager experience and cost. On a personal level, Moira is one of the most intelligent and well-rounded leaders in the search business.”

Bob C.

“Moira is by far the best recruiter I have ever worked with. She goes beyond what’s expected of her, not only finding the perfect fit for both the candidate and the employer, but also making sure the candidate feels comfortable throughout the interview process. She was always up front with information and gave me tips on how to communicate with each person I interviewed with. She truly cares about the candidate and the employer and what’s best for each, not just filling a position and moving on.”

Sarah E.
