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 had the pleasure of working with Stuart Allsopp at Conrad Consulting for the past 9 months on all of (omitted)'s construction-related recruitment. Conrad are one of our few Tier 1 preferred suppliers for the recruitment of site and other construction staff. Whilst I have only worked with Conrad on these roles, they have also supported other areas of the business on engineering roles. Whilst I have been working with Conrad for 9 months, since I joined (omitted), the HR team and Technical Directors have been partnering with them for a number of years. 
From my direct involvement with Stuart, I find that he has sought to fully understand the roles we are recruiting for, and to grasp the intricacies of our requirements such that he has been able to consistently provide high quality candidates for consideration. Since working together, Stuart has managed to help us fill some difficult roles where we have previously been struggling to find the right talent. Stuart has demonstrated tenacity and commitment to meeting our needs, and whilst he must work with a number of clients, we certainly feel a personal and dedicated touch. 
Stuart and the Conrad team have become trusted recruitment partners, and we hope that the relationship continues in the future.
