Job role: Associate Director
Specialism: Construction - London
I recently joined Conrad Consulting to help with the exciting launch of our new London office in Moorgate. I was initially attracted to the company as the ethos and ethics surrounding recruitment were synonymous with my own code of practice. Recruitment that delicately balances the need of both clients and candidates in an open and honest way.
I began my career as a Recruitment Consultant in 2010 and have always worked within the construction market, predominantly within London and The South East although have experience working Internationally having spent two years in construction market in Australia.
I am very lucky as I love my job and feel recruitment was my calling, especially as it is something ‘I fell into.’ I really care about the aspirations and needs of candidates, whilst providing an honest and open service to clients. For me, there is no better feeling in the world than finding someone their perfect role and fulfilling a clients’ need at the same time.
Outside of work I love to read, pretty much anything that has text and enjoy making my garden look pretty, when the weather permits. Once the garden looks lovely, I admire my own work whilst drinking a nice glass of wine. I also recently got engaged and so we are both looking forward to planning the wedding.

I started working with Ruth when my company experienced a period of growth during 2018. We had previously had some bad experiences working with some recruitment agencies and so were naturally cautious to start a relationship. However Ruth made the effort to visit our offices to meet both myself and the Managing Director and sought to establish what our company were about and what we were looking for. As a result Ruth has managed to fill numerous vacancies for us, and the quality of the candidates that she sends our way has been exceptional. In addition to this, Ruth has sound knowledge of the construction industry and has been a great help to me personally since I joined the industry.Amy Upton, HR Manager - JPJ Installations
