The success of any business relies on the strength of its workforce, none more so than in the technical sector. The process of recruiting quality employees can be disruptive, diverting precious time and energy from core business. Outsourcing recruitment is the obvious solution, but is only cost-effective if your chosen recruiter is an industry specialist whose consultants take pride in a job well done.
At Conrad Consulting we work closely with our clients and candidates to ensure that their needs are understood and taken into account. The sector-specific knowledge of every consultant enables us to identify and source the type of candidate who is likely to be a good match for your organisation.
By doing your permanent recruitment we will take away all the stress associated with sourcing the perfect candidate, allowing you to be free to focus on your main business activities. By developing an ongoing working partnership with you and an in-depth knowledge of your business, we will maximise the probability of finding the perfect addition to your team. We will keep you informed at every step of the way so you remain fully in control of the process.
In all cases, we follow a highly effective process to develop our understanding of your business as well as of the type of person and skillset you need to positively impact your company performance.
We will initially work with you to completely understand the requirements and can assist in helping create the role profile if required.
We would use a combination of methods to attract the right candidates. These approaches will include;-
Candidates will be assessed against the role profile as well as their cultural fit within the organisation. We will screen all CV’s received to create an initial shortlist before going on to the first round of interviews. This stage will obviously include the careful evaluation of each candidate’s background and skills, as well as their overall suitability as a potential employee with your company. Relevant identification and eligibility will also be carried out on all potential candidates.
We will support you with your interview process as appropriate. Regular contact will be maintained with you to update on progress and feedback will be taken from both parties.
We will advise all candidates on the outcome of their application. Our aim is to provide every candidate with an exceptional experience that reflects positively on your company brand. The offer process will be fully managed by us and we will keep both parties updated throughout regarding start dates.
Once the successful candidate starts with you it really is just the beginning of the ongoing process as we want everyone we place to have a long and successful career. We will maintain regular follow-up calls to both you and your new team member to monitor success.
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 (Client)
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 (Client)
Conrad provided Arcus with a very professional and responsive service during our recent recruitment process. James Wade took time to understand our needs and provided us with candidates to enable us to fill our vacancies swiftly and I would highly recommend Conrad to other organisations similar to ourselves.Clive Sellers, Managing Partner - Arcus Consulting LLP (Client)
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 (Client)
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.
Through our dealings with Conrad Consulting, we have always received an excellent, efficient and personal service. On the Structural recruitment side, I have personally dealt with Nick Grayston over many years. Nick always goes about his job with a smile and always goes the extra mile to ensure that the recruitment process goes ahead seamlessly.
