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.

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.
