Staffing & Recruitment

Your On-Demand Talent Team

We’re on a mission to democratise hiring for founder led start-ups, and give everyone a fair, equal and affordable opportunity to hire the best talent.

The FlexScore® is the result of a rigorous 2-step verification of a company’s flexibility

First we assess the flexibility options Scout provides and then we anonymously survey a statistically significant proportion of their employees to make sure Scout is as flexible as they say they are. Our assessment is based on the six key elements of flexibility: location, hours, autonomy, benefits, role modelling and work-life balance.

We ask the hard questions so you don’t have to.

What employees are saying

"Scout inherently is remote-first and flexible. The attitude towards parents (new and 'old') is fantastic, ensuring a remote-first organisation still stays connected, and work-life balance is fantastic."

Flexible working at Scout

At Scout, we're proud to be a flexible employer.

We believe that flexibility allows people to be more productive and happier at work and life in general. We value and promote work-life balance and we respect that people may be productive at different hours or have various commitments. As such, we entrust people to be in charge of their time, depending on their individual and client's needs.

We also offer employees rewarding benefits, including enhanced parental leave, work from home allowance, generous holiday, enhanced sick leave, pregnancy loss leave and teambuilding days.

What do we think of Scout?

Scout started their accreditation with a great score on their Employer Benchmark, but they actually exceeded that score with their Employee Benchmark, which is quite rare. This shows us that the employer is going above and beyond the norm to facilitate a progressive flexible working environment, and the employees are satisfied. It's an exceptionally positive position to be in for everyone!
