How we work
Any project large or small
Our team of recruiters are highly experienced and can handle assignments, minute or mammoth… as such we are used to working on challenging projects for free find or list recruitment.
We have a database of respondents covering all major cities in the UK plus a few places in between – whatever your location, we’ll source the participants.
We pride ourselves on our clean data and all respondents who participate in research are recorded on the database so we know who has done what, where and when.
Going global? People for Research handle recruitment projects at home and abroad.
All work guaranteed
We like to work in partnership with our clients – at every stage of the recruitment process we will provide you with regular updates (good, bad and indifferent) so you know what we know. Further, all work is covered by our Recruitment Guarantee.

People for Research
Queen Charlotte Street
People for Research have been recruiting people for a very long time as far back as the 1980s! We opened our doors as the first focus group viewing facility in the South West way back then.
Recruitment and technology have changed massively over the intervening years, but the principles of finding good participants haven’t.
There were no such things as email, Facebook, Google or world wide web back then and finding the correct participants was an art. We have translated this into the world we live in today and, as a result, are the UK’s leading participant recruitment company for usability research and the UX sector.
Gone is the old style one-way mirror viewing and in comes the high-tech user experience lab with lots of lovely techy stuff to see what users are doing during research.
We won’t rest here! The team are already working on new products and services to further support the world of behavioural insights.
People for Research HQ now occupies a prestige spot just off Queen Square, right in the heart of the vibrant and creative city of Bristol, setting and defining new standards in participant recruitment and management.
