Public Appointment Service (Ireland)

We are working collaboratively with the Public Appointments Service in Ireland to provide leading edge in depth assessment services for the most senior Executives in the Public Service using our premium Prism methodology to help enhance the talent pool.  

This approach enables us to provide succinct business focussed assessment reports and very insightful judgements and conclusions, helping to inform and bring higher levels of objectivity and confidence to the panel’s appointment decisions.  

Irish Rails HPT

Opes have been providing support services for a large-scale Organisation Development and Leadership in Irish Rail for the past two years. The programme supported the Executive Team and Senior Leaders to develop the Mission, Vision and Values of the business and to align Leadership capability and practices to the vision. This included updating the competence framework, assessing capabilities and development planning for 140 leaders, master classes, business improvement teams and executive coaching.

As a boutique consultancy, Opes is agile, responsive and personal. We work with organisations to develop leadership, talent and culture to increase performance and engagement. Our unique solutions are a blend of assessment, coaching and powerful organisational change programmes. Our approach is evidence-based; we use methodologies that work and deliver results. Our people bring a distinctive blend of skills including business psychology, people and organisation development, lean thinking and most importantly a strong customer focus.

As a business we focus on:

  • Optimising the solution for our clients to drive practical performance improvement
  • Partnering with them to build their capabilities
  • Enriching those we come into contact with through our work by using a strengths based approach
  • Sustaining change at individual, team and organisational level long after we have left

Opes partnered with us to help us take a fresh perspective on our talent strategy. They worked with our Senior Management and HR teams to facilitate the creation of a new Talent Management & Succession Management Policy & Strategy and the delivery of an innovative assessment and development solution for our high potential employees. The impact of this project has been significant – to quote one of the participants “The Future Leaders’ Programme was a fantastic addition to L&D in Tourism Ireland………It is setting the Company up for the future and ensuring that talent across the Company commits and contributes beyond their core role…..If anyone asks if they should apply for the Programme I automatically say ‘Yes’
