Jessica sets the benchmark in her field for being an outstanding recruiter, from start to finish she provided me with advice, guidance and mentoring through the interview process whilst reinforcing confidence in myself that I am right for this role.

I find this rare in the recruitment world so I highly recommend Stuart.

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.

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
After being in contact with numerous agencies over the years, I find many difficult to work with. Jessica is a very pleasant exemption. Her personality and knowledge make it very easy for her to talk to, and she really understands the industry and companies involved. She really does ‘go that extra mile’; and was approachable throughout and kept me fully informed of developments. I would highly recommend Jessica to anyone, and have recently.
David Mason - Principal Mechanical Engineer at WSP
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. 
Joshua Saunt - Architectural Technician at Darnton B3
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
I was in the process of relocating from Canada to the UK and didn’t expect to have my employment arranged before crossing the pond. Jessica didn’t just find me a job; she completely understood the expectations I had in a future employer and carefully considered the needs arising from my specific circumstance. She found me a position that fit the criteria I was looking for and more! Her insight into the market and her familiarity with the work environment of individual companies facilitated my transition to a company that fits both my needs and my values.

Jessica works quickly, is very professional, and provides great follow-up communication. I would recommend her to any design professional requiring the services she provides.
Andrew – Senior Electrical Design Engineer
I hardly knew of Conrad Consulting prior to meeting one of their agents. I particularly worked with Cameron Fairweather. Cameron exemplified what a true professional resourcer should be. Within a short period of liaising with Cameron, Conrad Consulting organised an interview with a company tailored for my skill set and vice versa. It is rare in the current market place to find recruiters that care much about their clients in a manner that suits all parties. Conrad Consulting is highly recommended
Dipo Adeniyi – Senior Mechanical Design Engineer @ ME Engineers
Jessica assisted in my search for a graduate job in the building services sector. She took the time to understand my requirements and supported me throughout the application process. Her continued support upon acceptance of a job offer and general advise has been greatly appreciated.
Luke Elam - Graduate Engineer
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
Jessica help me to find a new job opportunity. She was extremely professional organizing everything for me taking in account my preferences and requirements. She was exceedingly easy to work with and answered my questions diligently. I would highly recommend her for recruiting in the Building Services sector.

Jessica was very professional and helpful throughout my employment process, providing me with valuable knowledge and advice on how to approach contract negotiations with my new employer.
