INNOVATIVE RECRUITMENT

Here at Near and Far we are passionate about doing things differently. Whilst the research industry and the impact individuals participating can have has evolved, we believe the recruitment process has been left behind, still relying on databases, squeezing people into boxes and 'making do'. ​
 

We find fresh minds for each project.

 

Unlike traditional market research recruitment agencies we don't rate ourselves on a database and the number of people in our networks, we believe in finding fresh minds for each project without boundaries, promising to identify the most unique yet relevant people to inspire your brand, teams and projects.

Immersed in communities & trends.

Finding innovative, forward thinking individuals requires an innovative approach. We do this by immersing ourselves in the communities near and far, online and offline to find the right individuals to take your thinking to the next level. 

 
 

OUR PROCESS

Together we define and agree on a brief

We immerse ourselves in the relevant spaces, getting to know the communities, trends and the hierarchy of who's leading & following

We engage with individuals from these communities, starting to build a relationship

We screen all individuals against the agreed criteria, incorporating conversation to gauge qualities a screener can't provide

We provide you with a shortlist of individuals we believe best suit your challenge - often including wildcards

We can then support as little or as much as you'd like in the fieldwork process...
