Quintessentially People (or "QP") are a global headhunting agency, predominantly focussing on private and corporate support roles for high profile & high net worth individuals & businesses internationally. We are head-quartered in London, New York City and Los Angeles, and will be opening further offices in the USA, the Middle East and Asia in the coming months.
QP 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.
Our clients at QP range from numerous Royal families, politicians and international businessmen, through to high profile names in music, fashion, film and television - and we also look after a huge number of well-known businesses too, helping them to find candidates for their senior members of staff and international offices.
We are a modern agency with a modern vibe and a modern focus – we are very careful about the candidates we choose to represent and equally careful to ensure we work with clients who will treat our candidates with respect.
The following will give you an idea of just a small number of the positions we are tasked to headhunt on behalf of our clients – they have included a private PA & private travelling chef for a high profile name in music; a travelling Palace Manager for a foreign Royal; a couple to manage the estate of a senior politician; a Director to run an international family office; a Captain and his crew for a mega yacht for the summer season in the Mediterranean; a publicist and business manager to oversee the launch of an international business on behalf of a foreign Royal; a Tutor and PA to educate and manage the wife of a foreign non-English speaking President; a Nutritionist and Personal Trainer to travel 24/7 with the owner of a high profile American fashion brand; a Managing Director to head up a small international hedge fund; a Marketing Director for a well-known champagne brand; an events planner for one of the world’s leading events agencies – as well as many others.
Our agency is very diverse, looking after the needs of a wide range of different clientèle. The types of client we represent tend to be very high profile individuals or businesses and therefore we do not advertise our positions for the general public to view. Only candidates who have been pre-approved for access to our information and entered into a non-disclosure agreement with the agency are given login details to our site and can view job positions available – preventing the public from being able to see the positions and from the positions appearing in search engines.
QP is one of the only reputable private staff agencies in the world to not only hide their positions from the public, but to vet and filter out any irrelevant candidates applying on their website, which prevents job applications being made to these positions that do not meet the criteria set (as well as keeping the details of positions confidential).
Registering on the website does not automatically mean you are registered with our agency. If you want to do this, please contact us using the details below to interview with us in person.
Once approved, recruiters can advertise relevant positions either manually or using Broadbean technology, search for candidates (by keyword and/or experience), download CVs, track jobs advertised as well as applications made.
Once approved, candidates can search, apply and track jobs through their profile, as well as sign up for job alerts, newsletters and special promotions.
We pride ourselves on being available 24/7 for our international clients and candidates – if you ever need to get hold of us please call, email or text at your pleasure (at a reasonable time, remembering that we are based in the United Kingdom). If we do not reply within 48 hours, try again. We will always endeavour to get back to you – unlike some other agencies we will never just ignore a request, even if it is irrelevant to our agency.
