Client testimonials

Conrad Consulting has been working with many clients over the years and here are a few comments from some of our clients.


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
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
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. 
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.

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 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
Over the last three years we have been steadily building an exceptional team of professional Architects in our Leeds Studio. Box Architects have an ambitious programme of growth ahead of us and ensuring we only attract the very best talent in the region is an essential ingredient to our business success.

Ensuring we get the best support and advice available as we make these strategic growth decisions is incredibly important for us and we are therefore particularly careful about who we trust to support our business in this critical area.

James at Conrad Consulting has worked with us on the appointment of numerous new positions across all levels of experience. He has taken the time to comprehensively understand our business, our culture and our requirements and this detailed knowledge allows him to strategically place candidates with us whom we can be confident will easily integrate into our culture and our practice.

James has proven over the years to be honest and fair and we consider him an integral part of our ongoing business success. For any Architectural practice seeking a similar path of growth to the one we continue to pursue, I would highly recommend you partner with James at Conrad Consulting to support you in your endeavours as we have done.
Graham Place, Director - Box Architects
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.
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.
Chloe Wilkie, Business Development & Marketing Manager
My experience over the years of working with Conrad Consulting and more specifically with Guy is outstanding! He helped us to fill a difficult vacancy despite encountering obstacles along the way. Guy was very cooperative & patient and kept in constant contact during the process. Guy is very knowledgeable and professional. Highly recommended!
Alan Jeffery, Associate Director - The Fulkers Consultancy
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
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 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
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
Darryl is the best in his industry! A real professional and excellent attention to detail. He really understood my needs and requirements as well as the candidates fit for purpose and matched experience. He knows the sector so well, I'm sure he could carry out half the roles himself. A very personable guy and always kept him in the loop and up to date with all leads. I will continue to have a long relationship with him for sure.
Stephen Dellow - The Stilwell Partnership, part of Patrick Parsons
After a competitive vetting and selection process, we partnered with Conrad Consulting to provide assistance with selecting and appointing an Associate Architect, as a new member of our Senior Management Team. This was a senior appointment within our practice and we were extremely keen to ensure we were being given the very best advice and support.

Conrad provided an exceptional level of service and assembled an impressive shortlist of potential candidates, all of whom were highly qualified and suitably experienced. They used innovative social media techniques and carefully considered opportunity literature to reach such a wide pool of candidates, which ultimately led to us successfully appointing our new Associate.

We value our continuing relationship with Conrad and are still working with them as our preferred partner when trying to find suitably qualified candidates to complement our growing team.
Jonathan Hunter, Partner - GSS Architecture
