Providing World Class Candidates for World Renowned Clients
Quintessentially People is a leading international staffing/recruitment agency, head-quartered in London, with further offices in New York City, Los Angeles and Fort Lauderdale. Our clients at QP range from numerous well known UK and international businesses, through to private individuals and families such as Royals, politicians, international businessmen and high profile names in music, fashion, film and television. We also represent a wide range of less well known clients - helping them to find staff for their businesses and homes around the world.
We are a unique staffing agency with the services we offer to our clients, and we have the advantage of being part of the largest lifestyle business in the world, the Quintessentially Group. The Group has offices in 67 cities globally, with 23 sister businesses covering industries such as private aviation, music, film, television, publishing, concierge, property search, wine, PR, design, events, weddings, private wealth management, insurance and education to name a few. We also have our own charity, the Quintessentially Foundation, which has raised £6 million since 2008.
Quintessentially People was set up in 2011 by Samuel Martin - whose experience over the past ten years ranges from working in film and television production through to supporting high profile figures in government, fashion, retail, media and private family offices - and Ben Elliot and Aaron Simpson - the founders of the award-winning luxury lifestyle company, the Quintessentially Group.
“After spending 9 months refurbishing our home, we decided that we needed a housekeeper, someone who could help us after moving back organising all the various tradesmen, builders, deliveries as well as keep the house tidy. Obviously we needed someone trustworthy and articulate. I assumed that the search would take some time. However after I contacted QP, I was quickly given the CVs of 4 candidates who were high calibre and had all the qualities that I was looking for. QP made the search process very easy and I am delighted with my new housekeeper - someone I would have never found without the help of QP.”

"Q People responded quickly to our urgent request for a Director and we are delighted with the candidate who has started already. No mean feat as she has relocated to London for us and this successful hire is thanks to Q People's diligence, careful handling of the candidate and total understanding of our needs. We have asked for another position to be filled yesterday and Q People have 3 good candidates already!"
FROM THE CEO OF QUINTESSENTIALLY EXHIBITIONS
“Quintessentially People is a significant step above any other agency. During a recent nanny search, we also worked with two other agencies. There was no comparison between the quality of candidates we saw from Quintessentially People and the other agencies. The customer service was also phenomenal. Carmen had a clear understanding of our needs from the first conversation, did a great job screening candidates and was always available to answer questions to guide us through the process. I highly recommend Quintessentially People!”
