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.
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)
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.
I have recently been placed by James Jackson at Conrad Consulting at Darnton B3 in the position of Associate. I have registered with a few agencies in the past, but upon re-entering the jobs market was impressed by the attention to detail and understanding of my requirements that Conrad Consulting and James Jackson in particular had brought to my employment search. James had been careful to select only those opportunities that were a good fit with my skills and future aspirations, thereby eliminating the potential of mismatch and wasted time for both Employer and Candidate. I have settled quickly in my new position and am excited about the potential for future career development here. This is a testament to the skills required in making a good match and reflects well on James. On the basis of my personal experience of the professional service I have received I have no hesitation in recommending James Jackson of Conrad Consulting to former colleagues looking for work or an Employer seeking to use professional recruitment services.Paul Cockerill - Associate at Darnton B3 (Candidate)
James demonstrated enthusiasm and pro-activity in helping me to secure my current position. I would recommend James as a go-to consultant to help seek out those positions that you may not see advertised on the mainstream job sites. James kept in touch throughout the introduction, interview and start-up processes.Nial Coulter - Senior Project Manager at WPL Consulting (Candidate)
