Our considerable, hands-on industry experience gives us a true understanding of clients’ and candidates’ needs. We provide a personal, professional and effective recruitment and search service at competitive rates.
Most clients in the fine art, auction and luxury markets are highly specialised and often small to medium sized businesses. Sourcing, interviewing, assessing and selecting the person who is the perfect fit can be a lengthy and time-consuming process. Our aim is to refine this process for you. Once we have taken a full brief we aim to present a shortlist of at least three applicants for each vacancy. We will always agree timescales with you and we will only ever select a pool of applicants who we have personally met and screened for your specific role.
Candidates CV’s are submitted along with our own précis and interview synopsis. We can carry out statutory, right to work in the UK and proof of address checks and can take up references too.
We look forward to helping you find the perfect fit for your organisation.

We have used a number of recruitment consultants specialised in the art world before but have only ever been totally satisfied with the services of Drummond Read. Julia’s understanding of our needs was obvious from the start and her care and attention during the process of recruitment was very reassuring."Stuart Lochead, Managing Director, Daniel Katz Ltd
We had been looking for a General Valuer for some time and had been unsuccessful in finding the right candidate through traditional advertising. Drummond Read understood the brief and Julia tackled this tricky search with determination. Drummond Read presented us with some excellent candidates, which resulted in a key appointment for our business earlier this year. Julia has also helped us find a Toys and Collectables Specialist and a Pictures Cataloguer"Jeremy Pattison, Managing Director Auctioneer and Furniture Specialist, Tennants Auctioneers
With her art world background Nina quickly understands our specific requirements when undertaking a recruitment project and provides valuable input into defining the candidate profile. From working together she has gained a good feel for the culture of the organisation and consequently the quality of the CVs we receive is a close match to our needs which leads to an efficient and streamlined process. She is thorough in her approach, always available and keeps in touch after successful candidates have been appointed. I have no hesitation to recommend her to other organisations."Tim Jones, Director of Finance and Administration, Hauser & Wirth
I have been using the services of Art//Work Recruitment for the past 3 years. In this time Nina Langford has assisted us in effectively placing excellent staff within our galleries. Nina has always presented me with quality candidates, been very professional and most importantly been discreet and sensitive to our requirements. I would highly recommend Art//Work Recruitment to any company looking for quality staff."Robert Holzberger, Director of Operations, Victoria Miro Gallery
Nina has sourced a number of excellent candidates for us over the past three years. Her first hand experience of the commercial art world coupled with a intuitive yet rigorous approach means she consistently presents shortlists of the highest calibre. I would recommend her services to any organisation wishing to build a great team."Cassie Vaughan, Director of Operations, Timothy Taylor
I contacted D.R.A.W because I needed very specialist advice on an important clock collection which involved clocks by the premier names of English clock making. At the time I was on holiday but by the time I returned, D.R.A.W had organised a specialist with many years’ experience who catalogued the collection to a tight deadline, with condition reports and invaluable advice on cases, movements and makers. The whole process was made easy by D.R.A.W. and was excellent value for money and I would not hesitate to recommend them."Jeremy Lamond, Director, Halls Fine Art Auctioneers
