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.
Shawn recruited me for my current position of Public Transport Planner at Mott MacDonald. Shawn showed great ability as a liaison during the recruitment process, keeping me well informed of developments, being prompt in all communications and with an empathetic approach that helped to win my confidence in him. During negotiations over terms Shawn was an excellent facilitator and demonstrated a good understanding of what both myself and the employer needed.Andrew Radford - Transport Planner at Mott Macdonald
