A COMPANY is creating 100 new jobs.
Independent gas and electricity supplier Opus Energy, based in Northampton and Oxford, announced the roles on the same day it celebrated making The Sunday Times HSBC Top Track 250 league table of Britain’s leading mid-market private companies.
Published on Sunday, the league table ranks Britain’s private companies with the biggest sales.
Opus Energy’s success in achieving a placement in the Top Track 250 was based on sales figures to March 2011 which showed 31 per cent growth on the previous year to £198 million.
A typical Top Track 250 company is owned and run by established families and entrepreneurs and has between 100 and 13,000 staff.
Opus Energy employs 360 staff at both its Northampton and Oxford sites.
It has continued to see a rapid rate of growth for the first six months of this financial year and expects to create 100 new jobs by the end of 2012 to meet demand.
Managing director Charlie Crossley Cooke said: “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.
“We’re proud of our workforce in both Northampton and Oxford and expect that most of the new jobs will be filled by local people.”
