Alex Dixon
Ovo Energy

Great at finding the right job opportunity and a real pleasure to work with. I have a great experience working with Chris from Intelligent people during my recent job hunt. He was able to find me some great opportunities with the leading companies in the market within weeks. The feedbacks are always timely and they are great at getting me the time needed to take the right offer.

Alex Wang

We really liked that Intelligent People had a defined recruitment process: preparation, sourcing, approaching and engagement, selection and screening, shortlist, interview, and offer. The process was thorough and gave us a good feeling from the outset that Chris and his team knew what they were doing.

Andrew Watson

Chris was successful in helping me find an excellent position in eCommerce for a high-profile global company. He did this very efficiently in a very difficult market and I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Chris again.

Ben Chisell

Intelligent People did a brilliant executive search, providing a quality list of very engaged Marketing Director candidates to us extremely quickly. The quality of the shortlist we received is testament to the expertise and service offering within Intelligent People. We couldn’t be happier with Intelligent People as our executive search recruitment partner for this role. Read the full case study.

Ben Corlett

I would absolutely recommend Intelligent People to other businesses. In fact, I’ve already told several people about them when they needed help with recruiting at various levels. If I ever need assistance with finding B2C executives or other important commercial leadership roles, I will happily turn to their recruitment agency again.

Cat Costigan
Milk & More

Chris was a great guy to work with; he took time to understand me, my career and the type of role that I was looking for. He presented some great options and I was delighted to join eBay as a result. He was diligent throughout the process, both managing the process and ensuring everyone kept things moving to conclusion. A great guy and someone I would heartily recommend working with.

Chris Webster

I worked with Intelligent People when applying for roles at two separate companies, on each occasion dealing with different representatives. In both cases, I was highly impressed with the high level of service and assistance with preparation. Having worked with several recruitment agencies over the years, it is no exaggeration to say that Intelligent People’s commitment to personal service and support is first class, certainly among the very best I have experienced. Not only was the briefing process thorough, but it felt like both representatives were dedicated to my application; always available, always positive and always professional. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending Intelligent People to employers and job seekers alike.

David Thwaites

I’ve been working with the two consultants simultaneously from IP during my recent job search. Throughout the full cycle both guys were super friendly, really got the gist of the workplaces and were able to communicate the nuances very clearly and in a friendly manner. They were helpful, supportive and very on-point! @job seekers, don’t think twice these guys are bossing the market, well, at least for Digital roles that I was after. Pleasure to deal with them on many levels.

Dmitry Meltsov

I’ve had a long history with Doug at Intelligent People, we’ve been working together since 2010. The main reason for this long-standing relationship is that I trust Doug to get the results that I need. It’s nice that we get on personally, but ultimately, I go to Doug because he makes the recruitment process work for me. He quickly identifies what I need, understands what skills are needed to fill the gap, and the type of person that is likely to fit into my teams. Read the full case study.

Doug Conely

Chris is a delight to work with and has provided us with some exceptional talent over the last 12 months. He understands our business very well, is intellectually curious and incredibly passionate. Nothing seems to faze him. A genuine guy who has your interests at heart!

Louise Curtis

A topflight recruitment organisation. Doug was dogged in helping me find and close an excellent offer for a product management role, and when then that unfortunately fell through, the organisation came together to help me find even better opportunities. Nothing but friendly, professional service and a deep network of opportunities make this an essential organisation to be in contact with if you’re looking for role in London, particularly one in product management.

Ian Randolph

It has been a pleasure working with recruiters that have your best interests at heart. I was in contact with George and Doug for multiple product marketing opportunities in the market. Both men have been professional and a great support throughout the process to make sure I would make the right decision. Doug has been instrumental in securing the next step in my career and I can’t thank him enough.

Jasmijn De Baan

I would recommend and use their recruitment service again based on the facts that they put together a shortlist including great calibre Product Director candidates, they understood our business from the get-go, and they were extremely responsive to us. We got the result that we wanted – a great Product Director!

Jayne Hart

Out of all of the recruitment companies I applied through, Intelligent People were the most efficient and pleasant to work with. I would highly recommend you to other people I may come across looking for work. You responded quickly to my emails and questions, gave detailed information, and connected me with jobs that were exactly what I was looking for. Thank you so much for all of your help.

Jennifer Ruddock

Probably the best recruitment team I’ve worked with over the past ten years, highly professional with a personal touch, they take the time at each stage of the process to ensure that the fit is correct, they want to build long-term relationships rather than focusing on single placements.

John Grey

Amongst the best recruitment agencies I have ever had the pleasure to deal with. Made the whole process as efficient as possible, supporting me every step of the way. Both Becca and Chris were available at all times, kept in constant touch and offered valuable advice. They are friendly and approachable.

Laurence Bresh

When I am looking for the best Product Managers on the market, Intelligent People are my first and only port of call.

Luke Coleman
Argos / Home Retail

Simply put, Intelligent People are my go-to for product hires. They have always been honest, professional, and considerate balancing the needs of candidates with those of the hiring company. For my recent search – in a very difficult market – they were my first port of call and helped me land the perfect Product Manager for the role, who’s doing a fantastic job. The process was simple and straightforward, the shortlist was exactly what I wanted and the advice along the way, including salary benchmarks, candidate profiling and analysis was invaluable and refreshing in the scrappy world of recruitment.

Nick Brown

I trust Chris at Intelligent People to help build first class product management teams for my business. His open and collaborative approach to recruitment is refreshing, with strong knowledge and experience across the product management space that we need from a recruitment partner. Read full case study.

Owen Riddall

Without a doubt, the best recruitment agency I’ve ever worked with. Shame to use that term, as they are so much more. Always attentive, supportive, thoughtful, they really do things differently whichever side of the fence you’re on. Chris and his team are really something else, lovely folks as well, so whether you’re looking, or finding, talk to them. Just head and shoulders above the rest.

Paul Sherlock

Intelligent people have always looked after me well. They got me my last-but-one role and came within a whisker of getting me one this time round (though I went direct as it happens). And, as a Product Manager, they had the lions share of the decent roles.

Philip Baxter

A friendly and professional team who really know their market and clients, I’d highly recommend Intelligent People as specialist recruiters for product and product design. They take the time to thoroughly understand a brief, role and requirements, and always put forward a shortlist of highly relevant candidates. Intelligent People are our first stop for product positions, and we’ve successfully recruited a number of both contract and perm roles over the years.

Ruth Tapley
Ambassador Theatre Group Ltd

The outcome of working with Intelligent People as a recruitment agency was very successful – we ended up securing a great candidate. I’m sure we would not have found this candidate through our own recruitment methods of job ads, so utilising an international executive search firm to headhunt for us, find the candidate and sell them on our business, was definitely the best strategy.

Seth Weinberger
Chapter One

Overall, I’d highly recommend Intelligent People for both contingent and retained executive searches within product. Both experiences I’ve had with the business, for a Head of Product and VP Product roles, have been extremely positive. The recruitment team were able to provide a good range of strong candidates for each search. The communication from Doug and his team has been highly effective and has helped to drive the results we’ve needed for the business.
