You’ve worked hard and you are, rightly, proud of your chosen specialism and career. Now you’re looking for a new opportunity and, in the competitive technical sector market, job hunting can be time consuming and stressful, leading all too often to a multitude of dead ends and disappointments. So how do you streamline the process and gain an edge on the tens, or perhaps hundreds, of other applicants when you finally discover that ‘perfect fit’ role?
The short answer is “Find a dedicated recruitment expert who knows your field inside out.”
Sounds simple, but the reality is that the recruitment industry is overflowing with consultants, and you need to sort the wheat from the chaff to locate a specialist who can back up their claims with action. You don’t want a generalist or a consultant who sends out your CV for totally inappropriate roles. You do want someone who takes the time to know you, understands your strengths and weaknesses and knows the best way to accentuate the former and divert attention from the latter – someone you can trust to work with and for you in your best interests as an individual.
If your specialism is in the Civil and Structural, Construction, Architectural, Surveying, Traffic & Transportation, MEP Design and Sustainability or the Building Services sectors, you need look no further than Conrad Consulting. We work exclusively within the technical industry and always have, so each of our consultants has accumulated years of expert insider knowledge, liaising closely with companies to determine their exact requirements. With this information in hand, we can spend time getting to know our candidates and determining their expectations – we don’t put potential candidates into generic categories to fill generic roles.
Throughout the recruitment process, we are on hand from 8am to 10pm seven days a week to offer guidance, advice and feedback. The whole procedure is undertaken in the strictest confidence and we guarantee we will never submit a CV to a client without first obtaining a candidate’s permission.
Finally, we don’t disappear once an offer has been made. We’ll endeavour to negotiate the best remuneration package with optimum terms, and we keep in touch over time so that, should you decide to move on in future, we are ready to help.
So if you’re ready for your next role, please contact us and get ahead of the competition.

Jamie was a great help in my move, he provided close communication and made sure everything went smoothly throughout the process. From discussing potential job roles and updates, my new job move would not have happened without his assistance. I have had trouble with recruiters in the past, so this close contact with Jamie who listened to all my requirements is a refreshing change.
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 (Candidate)
