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 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.Gary Rollison, Partner – Cundall
