Conrad Consulting's collaborative approach to search and selection means we aim to position ourselves as a strategic extension of our clients overall recruitment functions. Our success is determined by developing a clear understanding of the fundamental purpose. For each individual assignment we would use one of our dedicated industry specialists who will have an extensive knowledge and an established network in the sector.
Working in partnership with you we will identify and understand the key requirements of the senior level hire, and assist in the development of a detailed job description and action plan with timescales. This process allows us to then define the search criteria and develop an understanding of where to find the ideal candidate. Using our highly customised research techniques we are able to unlock the best possible talent for our clients on a national and international basis where appropriate. We can provide a short list of exceptional industry leaders who are both well established in their market sector and can contribute to the vision and culture of the organisation.
In summary, our process includes the following:-
We continually work to develop a network of the very best interim executives. Due to the collaborative partnerships that we have developed in our professional specialisms, we gain access to the best and most diverse interims.
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.Graham Place, Director - Box Architects (Client)
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.
We have been working with Conrad Consulting for over 10 years, and have found this to be a very useful relationship in the complicated and ever changing recruitment market.Michael Feather, Director - Bowman Riley Architects (Client)
In recent years we have used Conrad Consulting exclusively to target many positions for our organisations from Graduate level to Associate Level. Their ability to understand our business and cultural needs enables the right candidates to be identified, and we are able to robustly and efficiently find the right people.
Compared to a lot of other recruiters we have used we find that Conrad Consulting are not overly aggressive in their approach, and are very friendly whilst retaining their professional integrity. So much so that we see them as an integral part of our business to be able to attract the best talent in our sector.
We have tried many ways of recruiting and whilst a standard advertisement and interview process would be economically efficient it is also very time consuming, therefore we find that by using Conrad Consulting it can save us time and money to find the exact talent for us.
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 Jeffrey, Partner - Pellings (Client)
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.Jonathan Hunter, Partner - GSS Architecture (Client)
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.
