What we do


We provide efficient, reliable, accurate recruitment with regular updates throughout the recruitment process.  Our aim is to make your fieldwork run smoothly, and all projects are handled by a dedicated team member.

Qualitative

We recruit for group discussions, depths, accompanied shops, online communities, using both traditional (free found) and digital methods from our panel and also from lists.  To ensure quality, we routinely check for serial attendees.

Qualitative Digital Hub

Our Grapevine Hub has over 18,000 consumer consultants online, accessible at a touch of a button, enabling fast, accurate, cost effective recruitment.  We script, screen, and talk to Hub Members personally, to ensure accuracy and that the quality of participation is of a high calibre.

We have expertise when it comes to recruiting for Qualitative Digital Hubs, developed through an understanding of our client needs.  Not only do we recruit, we support you through the set-up stage, ensure thorough briefings and have a point-of-contact for participants to go to, to allow you to focus on the research element of the community.  For all online projects we include participant management as part of our service.

Mobile

We recruit for mobile/app based research, and have drawn upon our experience of these projects to develop an adaptable recruitment process that not only focusses on tech needs, but on engaging respondents and giving you the assurance that participation will be at the fore-front of our minds. We also manage participation throughout mobile projects, ensuring tasks are completed to a high level.

Telephone

We collaborate with preferred suppliers when asked to recruit business, trade or consumer respondents from client supplied lists or sample.  We adhere to all Data Protection legislation and follow strict guidelines on data security.

Our recruiter network

All recruiters are personally briefed by us to ensure that they understand all aspects of the project.  We have a team of over 500 recruiters spread nationally across the UK.  Quality is extremely important to us and all are recruiters are trained by a senior member of FI and references are taken before any new recruiters are trained and used.  All work is monitored in accordance with our quality control standards.  We do not have supervisors so all our recruiters deal personally with FI staff and they are loyal to the company.
