Conrad Consulting is a dynamic and fast evolving company, dedicated to fulfilling the demand for an efficient, skilled and cost-effective technical recruitment service. Since our inception in 2001 as a company devoted exclusively to the Civil and Structural sector, we have expanded our expertise into the built environment, including Construction, Building Services, Architecture and Surveying. We now supply top quality personnel for a diverse range of roles throughout those sectors.
Conrad Consulting handles permanent, temporary and contract positions. For a full list of the roles we cater to in your field, please choose from the categories below.
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.
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.
After a competitive vetting and selection process, we partnered with Conrad Consulting to provide assistance with selecting and appointing an Associate Architect, as a new member of our Senior Management Team. This was a senior appointment within our practice and we were extremely keen to ensure we were being given the very best advice and support.Jonathan Hunter, Partner - GSS Architecture (Client)
Conrad provided an exceptional level of service and assembled an impressive shortlist of potential candidates, all of whom were highly qualified and suitably experienced. They used innovative social media techniques and carefully considered opportunity literature to reach such a wide pool of candidates, which ultimately led to us successfully appointing our new Associate.
We value our continuing relationship with Conrad and are still working with them as our preferred partner when trying to find suitably qualified candidates to complement our growing team.
I’d like to thank you for the valuable assistance you provided me in securing my present position.

His efforts, enthusiasm and the general pro-active nature went a long way towards making me feel comfortable and positive even in the climate of what I know is a highly competitive job search. To James and Team, a job well done and I will rely and recommend on your talent search expertise in the future.Farouk Yusuf - Chartered Quantity Surveyor at Arcus Consulting (Candidate)

I would not hesitate to recommend Kevin to anyone looking to move on in their career or seeking new opportunities. I found Kevin very easy to deal with and felt he was actively working on my behalf in my recent search for new opportunities. There are very few recruiters out there that I can say that about and Kevin is one of them. A credit to Conrad Consulting and the recruitment industry.Mark Jackson - Senior Building Surveyor at Munday + Cramer (Candidate)
Ashley was very helpful in securing me a new job when I was relocating to Birmingham from London last year. Not being familiar with many practices in the West Midlands Ashley was helpful and put me in touch with a number of good practices that I was not aware of before and that suited what I was looking for. I am now happily working with D5 Architects with whom I got the job through working with Ashley. He was very supportive and continues to ask how I am getting on, even 4 months into my new job. Would highly recommend.Hannah Davies - Architect at D5 Architects (Candidate)
