Can anyone recommend a good recruitment agency for sourcing participants for UT?
I've used Saros, Criteria and Qualtel recently (London / South East England), they've all been OK, but I thought it'd be useful to collate a list here.

We use Criteria for all our UT but would be interested to see what other companies get recommended. Just asked a friend and they just suggested taking a look at the AQR directory (Association for Qualitative Research). Hopefully that'll be of some help.
I have used Criteria for over 30 user research projects. They are very professional, methodical and thorough. Some of my projects were in financial services and required the recruitment of specialists within particular financial instruments that are known to be difficult to recruit. Time after time Criteria did a superb job, found the right participants and managed the logistics extremely well.
I just did this & seemed to help if you try searching for "market research recruiting" In doing so, I found this big list:
I can highly reccomend Magnetic Field;
They have never let me down and I have been using them for over 3 years now
