Your own embedded talent team to take your company to new heights


We are disrupting the embedded talent space, by offering an affordable, flexible and risk averse solution for start ups and scale-ups. On top of hiring, we offer a full recruitment solution, looking after lots of extra projects, such as Diversity & Inclusion training, recruitment process design/redesign and implementation, hiring manager training, ATS implementation, market mapping, salary benchmarking and more! We were very proud to be listed in the Startups.co.uk index for 2023. The index is the UK’s longest-running index of the Top 100 most disruptive and innovative small businesses.

So what is embedded talent? An embedded talent consultancy provides a business with one or more Talent Partners that become fully ’embedded’ in their client. At Scout, that means that the Talent Partner works for their client on the same contracted hours as all other full time employees and their time is dedicated entirely to their client. The Talent Partner will be given access to internal communications, attend internal meetings, use internal platforms and may even attend the Christmas party. They are, in essence, no different to any other permanent and full time member of staff.

Source talent worldwide

We hire across EMEA, APAC and US. Wherever the best talent for you is, we´ll find it.
