Emily Smith

Senior Recruitment Consultant

Emily is our resident Little Miss Sunshine with buckets of determination and the will power to match. She would be utterly unbeatable in a pub quiz about the TV show Friends and you would have to have the bravery of a warrior to try and compete with her. Sometimes, when there is a full moon, Emily can have enough sass to scare even the bravest trying to buy the last turkey on the shelf on Christmas Eve. She goes above and beyond for her clients, candidates, and colleagues and makes everyone laugh with her witty pop culture comments.

Emily has a really good eye for finding the right role for the candidate. After our first meeting she could tell the roles I'd be interested in, even before I knew I'd be interested in them myself. She is so supportive! I've come across recruiters in the past who push you into any interview hoping you get the job, which Emily completely isn't. She understands if you're having any issues or concerns and talks you through the process. She gives so much time and effort at preparing and supporting you for your interview. Emily's a really calming influence! Thanks a lot, Emily.

We have interviewed a number of candidates and worked with a number of recruitment firms and Opilio have been incredible in the service and experience that Emily has delivered. I have worked with recruitment companies from a personal perspective, with previous companies, and I even worked at one for a short while. Never have a had the pleasure of such a professional service. Emily has shown incredible candidate management skills, ensuring they were really prepared and presented in the best way. Dealing with her from a business perspective has been really easy and I can’t think of any other agency we would want to work with again.

I have been very impressed with Emily's positive attitude and professional advice during my last interview. I feel more confident to find my next role very soon and I am grateful for all the support. The communication has been excellent, Emily has always responded in time. I recommend Opilio because of the positive experience I've had with them!!

Emily has been great in assisting us with one of our crucial hires in our London office throughout a major growth phase. She was able to successfully understand what we needed, and advise where necessary. Emily provided us with a fantastic shortlist of high calibre candidates in a short space of time. These candidates were vetted well and she was able to point out why she sent in the candidates, given our needs and requirements. Emily guided both us and the candidates through every stage of the interview and hiring process, and made the process very easy and smooth for us. In the end, we had a tough job choosing between the two final candidates, but I know we made the right decision in the end. We now have a strong addition to the team who is enjoying their time with us. I would recommend Emily as it’s refreshing to deal with such a positive and understanding consultant, and we will absolutely be using her in the future. Thank you Emily!
