Our Team

Our team has a wealth of experience and understanding of the market research sector, having worked both client-side as researchers from 2002, and specialising in participant recruitment since 2006. We started our careers as market researchers, therefore we have the benefit of knowing exactly what is required and expected of a recruiter. Over the years we have worked with numerous world renowned companies, across a range of sectors, as well as boutique research agencies; as such we have the expertise to confidently recruit for almost any subject, no matter how big or small your needs might be. 

We pride ourselves on being able to deliver a high quality, stress-free service to each and every client. We are very aware and understanding of the unpredictable and fast-moving nature of research and we can guarantee that we will be right by your side throughout.

Darren Strick

Director and UX Participant Recruitment Specialist
Darren is our resident tech-expert and one of the leading names in UX research participant recruitment. A self-confessed gadget geek, UX Participant Recruitment is his speciality. Darren has worked in close partnership with some of the world's largest, most high-profile, gaming, design and technology companies and has received high acclaim for his expertise and passion for the sector. Whatever the latest games console or title, mobile device, or other new technology, due to be released to the market, you can be sure he has it, has pre-ordered it or knows all about it. It’s an expensive habit but one that keeps his finger on the pulse and up to date with the kinds of products his clients need participants to test. A line from one of his favourite client recommendations: "The phrase that comes to mind when I think of Darren is 'Ridiculously efficient’. I've always been particularly impressed by his ability to handle even the toughest recruitment and his ability to juggle multiple projects at the same time." In his free time, Darren is a keen landscape photographer and videographer and has had many images published nationally.
