Opus Energy opens new Northampton HQ

Opus Energy has officially opened its new headquarters, based in The Lakes Business Park, Northamptonshire, bringing 700 staff under one roof.

The new headquarters is known as Opus Energy House, a refurbished state of the art building which will unify the brand’s four offices in the county.

Complemented by its sites in Cardiff and Oxford, the office houses numerous key business roles, including customer services, operations, IT, HR, sales, renewables and business change.

Nikki Flanders, chief operations officer at Opus Energy, said: “Today 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 refurbishment has seen some innovative additions, including a well-being 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!”
