Testimonials

“We’ve worked with The Field team for many years and can’t recommend them highly enough!  Whether it’s quick turn around projects, difficult to reach audiences, or complex methodologies, The Field tackle each brief with a depth of understanding, sensitivity and real-world savviness that comes from many years of expertise.
We consider them much more than a recruitment team.  As their name suggests, they consider all things fieldwork, which for a researcher is value added each step of the way.

“Laura is always a pleasure to work with and responds quickly and thoughtfully to our video briefs. She intuitively knows how to use video to bring consumers to life in a compelling way and her work has been a key part of our visual output for clients.”
Sarah Davies – Founder, The Behavioural Architects

“Claire has been recruiting for me for many years so I can safely say that she offers truly excellent recruitment and fieldwork services. Unlike some recruiters who are simply focused on getting bums on seats, Claire is passionate about qualitative research and understands the need for high calibre respondents who meet the specific recruitment criteria for a project. She has a great deal of experience and she always provides added value by offering knowledgeable advice on sample structures. Highly organised and with an extensive network of recruiters across the UK (and beyond) I am always confident that she can deliver, whether I need to speak to groups of urban teenagers, yummy mummies, pet owners,  builders… you name them, she can find them!”
Selena King, Selena King Consulting

“Researchers who have done their own recruitment know it’s hard. Really hard. It requires great charm, tenacity and ingenuity. Oh and rigour – lots of rigour too. Claire has all of these in great spoonfuls. She also has an uncanny ability to gauge and adjust the sanity of researchers’ requests. I can’t count the number of times she has transformed a project by modifying vague, abstract schemes to make them feasible, or – just as common – taken an implausible sounding brief and cheerfully shown it to be possible. If you’re hunting for the 5 cogent respondents in a field at a festival, some brilliant groups alchemised out of a tattered list of pipex and blueyonder email addresses, or you just want to conduct your research on a boating lake, accompanied by the Queen’s favourite royal photographer, then there’s only one person you should call.”

“There’s no one I’d recommend more highly for producing a research film. Laura’s a great editor, with a talent for telling a story.  She’s also an excellent researcher in her own right.  This means she gets what you’re trying to do instinctively and can turn things around at great speed. You can also leave her to get on with a film entirely on her own. This would be a shame though: there are few such charming, good natured and entertaining people around.”
Richard Atkinson – Founder, Copasetic Research

“Claire and Laura are a great field team. They take time to understand researchers’ briefs and to come up with solutions to even the toughest recruits.  With years of agency experience behind them, both of them have a solid understanding of how research works and the role recruitment plays within a successful project.   They can help navigate every stage of recruitment, from assisting with initial sample definition, through creating your screening materials for you, to delivery of on spec recruits and getting participants to remain engaged with your process.  Their network of recruiters can be trusted to go the extra mile, giving quality recruitment on even the most peculiar or demanding of projects and sample specs.

Pragmatic and positive, they make projects work.”
Tom Marriage – Founder, Copasetic Research

“Laura is a pleasure to work with and her experience as a researcher shines through in her video outputs as they are always high quality, engaging and insightful. Thank you for all of your hard work and brilliant work so far!”
Caroline Westwood – Research Director, 2CV

“Claire and Laura have helped me with a broad range of insight studies over the years, helping us to add rich depth to design and innovation projects. Whether is be London’s coolest consumers, PoME razor users or creative cooks, the guys at The Field are always on-hand to help not only recruit, but consult and guide the successful recruitment of respondents. The Field always go over and above to deliver and are also really great people to work with. I couldn’t recommend them enough”
Rosie Broadhurst-Hooper – Dragon Rouge London

“I have been working with The Field over the last three years for our creative recruitment needs. I have always been able to rely on Claire and Laura for their super fast reactions, turn around and expertise in finding the right respondents for our projects. They have always been available at short notice and no challenge is too much trouble. We have worked with them on sourcing respondents for both large and smaller scale research projects and their networks have also enabled us to recruit in other countries. I’m looking forward to continuing to partner with The Field on our future projects”
