Job role: Principal Recruitment Consultant
Specialism: Surveying & Project Management - Scotland
I joined Conrad Consulting March 2017 to recruit within the Surveying & Project Management market throughout Scotland.
The fact that Conrad Consulting are technical recruitment specialists was the main appeal in joining what is also a very progressive brand.
Within a few months, due to continued success, I was promoted to Senior Consultant and am now referred to by a number of established Property & Construction Consultancies as a preferred recruiter and a specialist within my field.

I enjoy finding out insights about the Surveying & Project Management sector by having a developed network within the industry.

Rees is a determined and hard working recruiter who will allow you to make your own decisions about your future. Rees thinks long term, not short term. Rees is relentless in finding the right job for the right candidate. Rees is contactable night and day, and sometimes even on his holiday. Rees will not phone you every few hours, and instead provide you with an update every few days on all his efforts in one succinct phone call. The service Rees gave was head and shoulders above other recruiters I have dealt with. Thanks again Rees.Howard Sheldon - Senior Building Surveyor at JLL (Candidate)
