EMÉRIQUE OPOU

Founder and Chief Executive Officer

Emérique boasts over 10 years expertise in niche recruitment; her extensive pan-European experience has enabled her to gather a large network of professionals in the banking and insurance industries, including actuaries, financial engineers, quants, quantitative analysts, data scientists, risk managers and investment professionals. She recruits exclusively at executive and senior management levels.

Her network, mainly based in France, spans the UK, Switzerland, Belgium, Luxembourg, North America and Africa, where Emérique has been commissioned with international recruitment projects.

After earning multiple performance-related awards and promotions throughout her career, she took on the challenge of successively setting up the insurance divisions of a major international banking recruitment company, for its French and UK subsidiaries, by building teams of specialist consultants. Following this experience as a Consultant and then Senior Manager, she was recruited as Manager and then promoted to Associate Director to set up from scratch the French activities of a leading international headhunter focused on the banking and insurance industries.

Drawing on her diverse experiences, her passion for building long-term relationships and her determination to bring a consultative, natural and dynamic approach to her work, Emérique was able to build a strong network and subsequently decided to set up her own headhunting agency, Emérique & Partners.

Emérique holds a Master’s degree in International Business from Lyon and the University of Birmingham and has a keen interest for foreign languages, reading and indoor sports.


Emérique m’a permis d’accéder à mon poste actuel. Elle se démarque des chasseurs de tête avec lesquels j’ai eu l’occasion d ‘échanger jusqu’à présent. En effet, le travail réalisé est sérieux et efficace. J’ai beaucoup apprécié son suivi et ses conseils tout au long du processus de recrutement.
En plus, échanger avec elle est très agréable!
