A brief historyConrad’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.
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.
I had used Conrad Consulting for many years when I needed staff for my team. Graham only ever sent through a few selected CV’s, but they were always worth seeing, and I took on several excellent candidates through this route. So when it was my turn to look for a job, choosing Graham as my consultant seemed the obvious choice. Professional and hard-working, with a good knowledge of key players in the market, he worked with me over a period of months and arranged a series of interviews that led to several offers. Always discrete, he was able to secure a deal on my behalf and, six months on, the new job is working out well. I would have no hesitation in using Conrad Consulting again as employer or candidate.Stephen Beggs - Capita
