Leftfield International

Leftfield is an international field agency operating globally from our offices in London and Amsterdam.

We specialise in qualitative recruitment and have a reputation for high quality, which we apply to every aspect of the research process: fine-tuning the initial brief, identifying relevant locations and screening and pre-checking to ensure standout engagement.

We handle our clients' logistical needs every step of the way from advising on compliance and regulations to developing recruitment screeners. We pay incentives, organise venues or online platforms and co-ordinate catering and filming.

Our International Department operates worldwide and in the last year has co-ordinated projects in over 30 countries covering every continent. We work with trusted suppliers, moderators and translators for a 'one stop shop' approach to international fieldwork.

Our Experts & Elites Department also works globally, and our network includes Opinion Formers, Thought Leaders and Senior Professionals from an array of backgrounds and specialisms, with a particular emphasis on those from a policy background. We recruit directly from our offices, and in addition have a dedicated Indian desk based in London.

Our original UK arm has extensive contacts across Great Britain and over thirty years of experience recruiting focus groups, ethnographies, depths, online platforms and usability studies.

We take a unique approach to each project with targeted recruitment to ensure that the right voices are heard.
