I have had the pleasure of working with Stuart Allsopp at Conrad Consulting for the past 9 months on all of (omitted)'s construction-related recruitment. Conrad are one of our few Tier 1 preferred suppliers for the recruitment of site and other construction staff. Whilst I have only worked with Conrad on these roles, they have also supported other areas of the business on engineering roles. Whilst I have been working with Conrad for 9 months, since I joined (omitted), the HR team and Technical Directors have been partnering with them for a number of years.UK House Builder
From my direct involvement with Stuart, I find that he has sought to fully understand the roles we are recruiting for, and to grasp the intricacies of our requirements such that he has been able to consistently provide high quality candidates for consideration. Since working together, Stuart has managed to help us fill some difficult roles where we have previously been struggling to find the right talent. Stuart has demonstrated tenacity and commitment to meeting our needs, and whilst he must work with a number of clients, we certainly feel a personal and dedicated touch.
Stuart and the Conrad team have become trusted recruitment partners, and we hope that the relationship continues in the future.
Rees at Conrad Consulting has been assisting us with our recruitment for nearly a year and during that time he has provided us an excellent service, resulting in our company recruiting brilliant new Quantity Surveyors.Chloe Wilkie, Business Development & Marketing Manager
Through his in depth knowledge of the Construction industry, Rees very quickly gained a full understanding of our requirements and has been able to match those requirements to skilled and qualified individuals in the job market.
He is very proactive about finding out as much detail as possible about each candidate to qualify their suitability for our vacancies, which has been a massive help in our decision making process and has saved us a lot of time.
As a result of the service Rees has provided, we use Conrad Consulting as our sole provider of recruitment services for all our Construction related vacancies.
I have a longstanding relationship with Conrad Consulting who have always maintained a thorough understanding of the nature of our business and our needs when tasked with specific capability requirements for our recruitment. Conrad Consulting and particularly Graham Ventham have always been honest, enthusiastic and very professional in the performance of their service. They have always endeavoured to match high quality candidates with specific positions we have targeted. Regular communication has also demonstrated that they are very much aware of the pervading market conditions and have a very good ‘finger on the pulse’ without the need to overstate sentiment in the broader design consultancy business. Above all Conrad Consulting’s attention to detail, knowledge and trustworthy service make them the leading recruiting agency that I turn to when recruitment outside our business is contemplated.Steve Prichard, Business Unit Director - Aecom
We have worked with Conrad Consulting for 9 years and have built up an excellent relationship of mutual trust and respect. For the last few years when recruitment needs have been lower we chose to solely work with Conrad Consulting. They know our business and the needs of each of our offices and we only receive CVs that match those requirements.Jane Saynor, HR Manager - Clancy Consulting
I have involved Conrad Consulting in the structural engineering recruitment needs of Cundall at all staff levels since its formation as a recruitment consultant. We do so because they have shown us they understand the needs of our business and have been able to provide excellent candidates for our consideration which has helped us shorten the time we need to spend on recruitment. We have enjoyed the ability to have honest, open and trusting interaction and importantly a friendly approach particularly with the business owner, Graham Ventham. Amongst the large pool of such consultants, but unlike most, we have continued to use Conrad Consulting since they have proved their continual ability to fulfil our needs in a personable way that makes the difficult process that little bit more enjoyable.Gary Rollison, Partner – Cundall
Conrad Consulting and Gary Gabriel Associates have worked very well together over many years. We like people who are highly professional, self-motivated and self-disciplined but who know how and when to have fun. Graham has the great knack of finding them.James Wallace - Practice Manager at Gary Gabriel Associates
I have worked with Conrad Consulting for many years now and have always been very impressed with their professional service and high calibre of candidates. Conrad Consulting have acquired a good understanding and knowledge of our business during our working relationship, meeting our requirements every time in an efficient, professional and friendly manner.David Sharp, Director - Meinhardt Group
Over the years we have worked closely with a number of Recruitment Consultants but Stuart’s approach to finding us not just ‘a’ new member of staff, but the ‘right’ member of staff was refreshing. Stuart asked us specifically who we were after, why, and took the time to understand our business and requirements. We were really pleased with the candidates he put forward as they were already personalities that would work within our business which led to successful job offers being made for 2 different positions, and as such we look forward to working further with Stuart and Conrad Consulting.Steve Duffy - Director at HNW Architects
Conrad Consulting is the leader of the class in Civil and Structural Engineering recruitment. Whether you’re recruiting or looking for a position, Graham should be your first port of call.Philip Kwan, Technical Director - Sinclair Johnston & Partners
I had used Conrad Consulting for many years when I needed staff for my team. Graham only ever sent through a few selected CV’s, but they were always worth seeing, and I took on several excellent candidates through this route. So when it was my turn to look for a job, choosing Graham as my consultant seemed the obvious choice. Professional and hard-working, with a good knowledge of key players in the market, he worked with me over a period of months and arranged a series of interviews that led to several offers. Always discrete, he was able to secure a deal on my behalf and, six months on, the new job is working out well. I would have no hesitation in using Conrad Consulting again as employer or candidate.Stephen Beggs - Capita
