  • James is very friendly and professional individual, who is simply fantastic at what he does.

    A year ago I was looking to move from London to Yorkshire. In all the panic, James made the process of finding a job easy and simple. He helped me find numerous practices, scheduled all my interviews giving enough travel time to stay calm and collected with 4 interviews in 1 day!

    He advised me on being flexible and going for multiple companies that might be hiring to give me choice. Finding me the best fit and my next stage in life. He was doing all this and balancing a life with new born twins!!

    He was understanding and lovely to talk to, James went above and beyond so I was happy and I ended up where I wanted to be. I can say that after a year, I’m loving my work and I am making great progress in my current position.

    I am very thankful to James for opening my career path in Yorkshire and I would recommend anyone to get in touch, he really is good at his job!

  • I am writing to express my sincere appreciation for the outstanding job placement services provided by your recruitment company. I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to Ross Waddell, who went above and beyond to help me secure a job back in an industry I am passionate about!


    I was referred to your company by a friend, who was fortunate enough to secure his job through Ross and couldn’t not have recommended him more. From our very first interaction, I could sense his professionalism, dedication, and willingness to assist me in finding a suitable job. He took the time to understand my job preferences, my previous work experience, and my career aspirations.


    Ross provided me with valuable guidance and advice, reviewed my CV, and suggested ways to improve it. He kept me informed of job openings that matched my profile and facilitated my application process. He also coached me on how to prepare for interviews, and his constructive feedback helped me to boost my confidence.


    Thanks to his tireless efforts, I was able to secure a job in my dream industry, and I couldn't be happier. I cannot thank Ross enough for his exceptional service, and I am glad that I chose your recruitment company for my job search. He really has gone above and beyond, like no other recruiter that I know of!


    Once again, thank you ever so much Ross - you’ve been AMAZING!

During the application process he kept me informed of everything going on, communicated regularly and was just a phone call away if I had any questions. He guided me through the interview process and then after I accepted the job offer still offered his help and support to help me prepare for my new role. Kevin made finding, applying and starting my new job super easy and was extremely helpful, I definitely recommend.

  • Will has helped me a couple of times now to secure positions within Practices that I believe I would not have been able to secure myself, in both a timely and professional manner. I felt he listened to my requirements, helped me to understand the process effectively, and was extremely diligent and competent in his role. Will at a moment's notice was able to secure interviews (with my documents ready) within 24 hours, helped in salary negotiations, and removed the awkward aspects of the process. A real miracle worker and honestly, I couldn't have asked for more. I would happily recommend Will to anyone looking for a role within Architecture.

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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • After learning that I was potentially looking to move to a new position, Rees contacted me to make me aware of an opening with a prospective employer. Rees asked all the right questions to ascertain my current skillset, the reasons why I considering a move and ultimately what my future ambitions are and how these would fit with potential employer. We discussed the potential opening and Rees was very well informed as to the company’s current position, workload, future prospects and how he saw me fitting in. Within an hour Rees had an interview arranged and within a week of Rees and I first talking, I had an offer. I am now settled I my new position and everything Rees promised has been realised.

    Bryan Menzies - Quantity Surveyor at PMP
  • 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
  • Kevin, I cannot thank you enough for being so kind, encouraging and supportive. I found the recruitment experience with Conrad Consulting very professional and highly recommended.
