I would not hesitate to recommend Kevin to any company or client, his approach in business is second to none, highly professional (very refreshing) Thank you again and I look forward to working with you in the not too distant future.
Daniel Malone – Project Manager / Building Surveyor
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
Will was very helpful at an important stage of my career. I had challenging expectations, Will made these his focus and together we succeeded in securing the best opportunity. I will recommend his service every time. It was a pleasure.
Carlos Ruiz, Architect - Sheppard Robson
Recently started a new job as a Geo-environmental Consultant close to my home thanks to Conrad. Kate Waltham who helped me out was fantastic and super friendly/helpful. It is safe to say I now have a job I am thoroughly enjoying with a lovely, short commute whilst putting me on the long term career path I want to be on. Thanks!
Callum Harris - Geo-environmental Consultant
James' support was invaluable in my recent success, securing a Director position with a new architectural practice. Helpful and friendly from the start, James provided exactly the right balance of professional advice, encouragement and feedback on my preparations for first and second interview, CV and business plan I had to prepare. Always making time to discuss the recruitment process, providing interview feedback, timely updates and giving advice regarding the important decisions I would need to make for this significant career next step. I would recommend James without hesitation!
Alistair Branch - Director
Darryl is a great recruitment consultant. He managed to hunt down a great job, which matched all my expectations. He did a perfect job. I recommend him to anybody who is looking for a new role. Thanks again Darryl.
Lorant Bako - Structural Revit Technician at Calcinotto
I genuinely feel very fortunate for meeting Darryl, before I had to look for my next career opportunity. I have come across many recruiters, but few have his exceptional expertise in communication, consulting and work ethic. Darryl did not promote me the most rewarding job for himself neither did he make me choose from a list of generic jobs. On the contrary, he supported me immensely during the recruitment process and approached the companies that required my skills and matched my aspirations in a professional and timely manner. I would highly recommend Darryl to anyone who is pursuing a career in the Engineering sector.
Georgios Roinas - Principal Infrastructure Engineer at Peter Brett Associates
This is the first time I worked with Ashley and I was very happy about his great efficiency andbrilliant service.

Ashley is not only an expert in his field, but also a very dedicated and helpful person who matched my personality well with my new employer. Therefore, I was very supprised when he infomed me about the 1st job interview after just one day of receiving my CV. And another three interviews in the following week, all with interesting positions and offers.

I am now very happy to join Chetwoods Architects, a leading company in Sutainability and Environmental Design, which is always my passion. Thank you Ashley and I would definitely recommend you!
Cuong Nguyen - Architect at Chetwoods
Whether it's just luck or a thorough and up-to-date understanding of the client's needs I've always found Conrad Consulting extremely proactive in seeking out those permanent and contract positions that were suitable for me. I find it reassuring that Graham is able to maintain the momentum in a professional and friendly way ensuring I have every chance to succeed in an industry with ever increasing employment pressures.
Simon Lamb - Chartered Civil Engineer at Bidwells
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
Rees is a determined and hard working recruiter who will allow you to make your own decisions about your future. Rees thinks long term, not short term. Rees is relentless in finding the right job for the right candidate. Rees is contactable night and day, and sometimes even on his holiday. Rees will not phone you every few hours, and instead provide you with an update every few days on all his efforts in one succinct phone call. The service Rees gave was head and shoulders above other recruiters I have dealt with. Thanks again Rees.
Howard Sheldon - Senior Building Surveyor at JLL
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
Great friendly and professional service provided by Will who managed to successfully secure a job for me working within the design team currently working on one of the largest heritage projects within the north-west region - something in which my experience and background was best suited towards through my CV. Finding this job has reignited the spark and passion I once had for architecture, and will ensure my personal career progression is back on track. Thankyou!!!
Stephen Wardle - Architectural Technologist at Purcell
I was grateful for Shawn's assistance in finding a new position. Always prepared to go the extra mile, Shawn regularly kept me apprised of job opportunities and pursued job applications on my behalf.
Gerry Corrance - Technical Director at WSP
I have recently been placed by James Jackson at Conrad Consulting at Darnton B3 in the position of Associate. I have registered with a few agencies in the past, but upon re-entering the jobs market was impressed by the attention to detail and understanding of my requirements that Conrad Consulting and James Jackson in particular had brought to my employment search. James had been careful to select only those opportunities that were a good fit with my skills and future aspirations, thereby eliminating the potential of mismatch and wasted time for both Employer and Candidate. I have settled quickly in my new position and  am excited about the potential for future career development here. This is a testament to the skills required in making a good match and reflects well on James. On the basis of my personal experience of the professional service I have received I have no hesitation in recommending  James Jackson of Conrad Consulting  to former colleagues looking for work or an Employer seeking to use professional recruitment services.
Paul Cockerill - Associate at Darnton B3
Stuart is hands down the best recruitment agent I have ever used and I am glad I came across Conrad Consulting. He is very friendly and approachable and he took the time to listen to me and find out exactly what role I was after and what my requirements were. I find this rare in the recruitment world so I highly recommend Stuart.
Cindy Barkley - Intermediate Architectural Technician at C7 Architects
I had a very positive experience dealing with Conrad Consulting and particularly Graham Ventham, he was open and proactive. My requirements and that of my employer were accurately met, as what was initially a short term role lead to a long term position.
Rich Street - Infrastructure Engineer at Price & Myers
For me Conrad Consulting really stood out over other recruiters. Finding someone like Darryl Yates to assist me in the process made it effortless. Within a matter of days Darryl had organised a list of companies to run through with me, with specified roles tailored to my skill set and career aspirations. The straight talking, no hard sell approach is absolutely ideal for me. Recruiters with Darryl's attitude and attention to finding a job that truly matches their clients are hard to come by in my experience. Darryl is so easy to converse with and helped me acquire my new job within two and a half weeks. I couldn't recommend Conrad Consulting more.
Helen Bullen - Principal Infrastructure Engineer at Bellamy Wallace Partnership
Would absolutely recommend Conrad Consulting. After an initial meeting with Rees I had interviews within a week. By the second week I was considering offers. Excellent service from start to finish.
Ross McKenzie, Senior Quantity Surveyor at Faithful+Gould
Rees contacted me regarding a possible position. Within a week I was offered the post. I would happily tell everyone how great Rees was when dealing with me during this change. 

He acted confidently, discreetly and swiftly and was able to deliver to above my expectations.
David Bower - Quantity Surveyor at Gleeds
Nick was excellent in helping me find the perfect new job. He was extremely helpful and made my job hunt very quick and painless by providing great advice throughout the entire application and interview process. He also continued to be of great assistance into my notice period once I had accepted my new position.

It was a pleasure to work with him and I would definitely recommend Conrad Consulting to anyone thinking about looking for a job in the engineering industry.
Alastair Gathergood - Structural Engineering Technician
I can personally recommend Martin Bell as a recruitment consultant who understands the needs of the Building Services industry. His enthusiasm and drive to consistently deliver high calibre candidates to meet the needs of specific business requirements is unrivalled in my experience
Ben Freck - Associate Mechanical at Qoda Consulting
Rees played a huge part in finding myself a new apprenticeship this week, absolutely delighted with my new position and couldn’t have got there without him! Excellent service, thanks again.👍
Jack Campbell - Apprentice Quantity Surveyor at McLeod & Aitken
Ashley provided a brilliant service. Matched my personality well with my new employer. He kept in constant contact throughout the process to ensure I was well informed.
