Do you believe that scouting talents is mainly about sitting in front of LinkedIn and conducting interviews? We believe it´s so much more. We see Scouts as explorers sent out to gain information about people, markets, and possibilities. Good Scouts know their terrain, methods, and vision to gain knowledge and insights with every search. As our Scout, you’ll explore one of the most valuable assets: talents.

Being our talent scout means you´ll manage your own discoveries. You'll decide about the channels, methods, tools, and routes to take. You'll have full ownership of your exploration, while assistance from other Scouts right next to you is always provided. It also means cooperation and sharing expertise is crucial to our team’s mission.
