Aquent Scout gives you access to thousands of specialized recruiters in one intelligent platform.

Scout is a recruitment marketplace that matches you to the best recruiters to fill your open roles. With Scout, you can tap into all the top recruiters across job categories, find the right permanent and contingent candidates faster, and seamlessly manage all your vendor relationships and back-office functions in one place, through a single point of contact.


Here's how it works.

Post a job

Share the job details so recruiters can understand exactly what to look for.

Get matched to the right recruiters

Our platform uses machine learning to match your job to the specialized recruiters in our marketplace who’ve had the most success filling similar positions.

See how they rank

Our system ranks those recruiters by their track records and how likely they are to fill your job—so you can save time by sending it to top performers first. Top recruiters are more likely to deliver you successful candidates.

Fill your job fast

You get better, more qualified candidates from the best, most qualified recruiters. That means your time-to-fill could drop by as much as 40%.

Streamline everything

Everything from submission to hiring happens within Scout, so all contracts, invoices, and records for compliance are centralized.

Stay on track

We track and organize the costs and data associated with hiring, so it’s easy to monitor your bottom line, programs, and progress.

Why Scout?

Engage every great recruiter

Work with all the best recruiters across job categories and markets. We make vendor expansion easy with our network of thousands of specialist recruiters to help you find the very best people.

Recruiter performance ratings

We rate individual recruiters, not supplier companies. These ratings help intelligently match recruiters to open roles, maximizing the success of your talent search.

Cut time to hire

Our vast marketplace of proven, specialized recruiters means you get the right candidates faster, slashing time-to-hire up to 40%.

Save on employment costs

Unlock economies of scale by consolidating your talent under Aquent as the employer of record. Recruit through the Scout marketplace and continue using your existing staffing vendors if you wish, all in one place.

Improve candidate diversity

By working with multiple recruiters nationwide, you can tap into a much deeper, more diverse pool of candidates.

Streamline everything

We’re a single source of accountability to manage all your temporary staffing and permanent search firm relationships. We simplify vendor management with one contract, one invoice, and one process.

Integrates with tools you already use

Scout seamlessly integrates into the most popular ATS and HRIS tools, so you don’t need to change your workflow or add any new software or infrastructure.

Our work is bigger than us.
