Moorgate, London, East London

The time to join Conrad Consulting as a Civil & Structural Recruiter in London, with a sure-fire way to becoming an established recruiter and losing the ‘Trainee’ title within months is right now!

Our London WeWork offices at Moorgate is where the role is based-- a short-walk from Liverpool Street and seconds from the Moorgate tube station.

Don’t know much about Civil & Structural Engineering or Recruitment? No stress!

#1 Civil & Structural recruiter and director Graham Ventham leads by example at Conrad and is recognised as an industry-leading recruiter across the UK, regularly visiting the office, usually more than once weekly. You will benefit from mentoring so that you can quickly learn the mechanics of recruitment and the industry-specific terminology required to succeed.

Day-to-day, you will also be supported by experienced Senior Consultant, Matthew – who covers Architectural recruitment in London and will be on hand daily to guide you whilst establishing a desk of your own.

The beauty of this role is the scope you have to make it your own, take ownership of clients, you’re schedule and your recruitment style.

What’s the rest of the team and company like?

Conrad’s friendly ethos and start-up mentality resonates throughout all our regional offices, where there are nearing 40 employees.

Within a short space of time you will get to know and work alongside specialists consultants from all our regional offices, particularly being based in our London hub.

The London team take part in regular weekly drinks and team lunches at steak restaurants, especially when colleagues visit from other offices. Annually, the whole company get together to celebrate our financial year in July with a company AGM – we have been to Leeds, Munich, Barcelona, Marbella, and most recently Portugal, which created a palpable buzz we are all yet to shake off.

Not only this, all consultants are put on an uncapped generous commission scheme paying up to 25% of billing from day one and continued top performance is recognised with:

Quarterly hit-target club days out
Annual trip to Miami for top billers
Bonus scheme
Consultant of the month

What sort of person succeeds in this role, and how quickly can I progress?

There is no formula for the ideal candidate for this type of role, however key characteristics we always recognise in our top performing consultants are:

DRIVE - Focused, goal-driven and take on challenges head-first. Always questioning how things can be done better.

RESILIENCE - Handling fall-backs. With recruitment, working with people is largely unpredictable, meaning your efforts may need to change direction at short notice. Those who can adapt quickest, thrive!

PASSION - Actively research and interest in their patch and sector to ensure they are able to engage with candidates, clients and colleagues - offering a high-standard service to clients.

We find our best consultants don’t require mentoring for long and are keen to take full reign of their desk.
