A brief history

Conrad’s founder, Graham Ventham, started his career in recruitment in 1995. He was drawn to the challenges and opportunities of the Civil & Structural sector but, as his expertise grew, he realised he could serve his clients better by starting a bespoke company implementing his own high standards and working practices. 

Graham made a courageous decision to branch out alone, and Conrad Consulting was born. The company quickly gained a first-rate reputation with clients and candidates alike, largely owing to its founder’s commitment and sheer hard work.

Throughout the ensuing years of expansion, Graham has remained fully active as Director of the company, instilling his co-workers with his infectious enthusiasm.  Every consultant has specialist knowledge gleaned from years of experience in their designated field but all work together to provide the best recruitment service possible.

A few words from Graham:

The key to our success over the years has been in offering a highly personalised service. We aim to build relationships with clients and candidates that enable us to understand their requirements in detail, because to recruit effectively you have to treat each case individually. Although Conrad has grown, we have retained our 'small and friendly' ethos so that we can continue to do this.


A comment from a client...

I have involved Conrad Consulting in the structural engineering recruitment needs of Cundall at all staff levels since its formation as a recruitment consultant. We do so because they have shown us they understand the needs of our business and have been able to provide excellent candidates for our consideration which has helped us shorten the time we need to spend on recruitment. We have enjoyed the ability to have honest, open and trusting interaction and importantly a friendly approach particularly with the business owner, Graham Ventham. Amongst the large pool of such consultants, but unlike most, we have continued to use Conrad Consulting since they have proved their continual ability to fulfil our needs in a personable way that makes the difficult process that little bit more enjoyable.
