Leftfield International

Established in 2002, Leftfield is an independent field agency based in London.

We specialise in qualitative recruitment with particular expertise in focus groups, ethnographies and online platforms.

Our UK arm has extensive contacts across the country and we have extended our specialist databases to include B2B and Medical to complement our youth and consumer panels.

We have contacts with both agencies and participants in markets across the world and in the last year our International Department has co-ordinated projects in over 30 countries covering every continent.

Our in-house Key Opinion Former panel is truly global and includes experts from an array of backgrounds and specialisms.

We opened Leftfield North in January 2019 and will be opening a European office in 2020, as we increasingly aim to talk to new people and expand into new areas.

We take a unique approach to each project with targeted recruitment to ensure that we find the right participants.

Leftfield: do things differently
