Higher Education Executive Search

new graduates throwing their graduation hats upwardY Scouts is a higher education executive search firm that believes inspired organizations and inspired leaders begin with why.

Why does your educational institution exist? Why do you get out of bed in the morning? When organizations and leaders know why they do what they do, they inspire others to be a part of what you do.

We connect education executives who want to make a difference with institutions that are making a difference.

We understand how important it is to hire experienced people who are motivated by your mission and fit within your unique culture. Every leader we present has the right mix of professional skills, personality, and purpose that fits with your institution.


Y Scouts’ Higher Education Executive Search Process


Uniquely Experienced Higher Education Recruiters

Led by Paul Eisenstein, a nonprofit executive who is driven to “put a dent in the universe,” the motivations of our clients at Y Scouts are clearly understood.

Paul and our team of education headhunters understand the functions and dynamics surrounding the most critical leadership roles in educational institutions.

Y Scouts education recruiters help colleges and universities maximize profitability by delivering exceptional leaders with our college president search firm services.

By combining our knowledge of the nonprofit sector with an active network of education executives, Y Scouts is able to present the highest caliber candidates to our clients.

Covert Education Recruiting Search Operations

Additionally, our Y Scouts education recruiters are covert. Our search operation is completely confidential with precise perfection to deliver you a leader that’s ready to win the future.

Unlike most education recruiting companies, we don’t post jobs.

We take this no job posting approach to ensure that we get to the stuff that hides beneath the surface.

In addition, we make sure that a candidate’s intangibles are aligned with your company’s culture, values, and mission.

These intangibles include the creativity or innovative potential of a candidate as well as other soft skills like communication. By assessing these skills, our team ensures you receive a comprehensively talented candidate who is dedicated to their role.

By and large, the result you can expect is an authentic, exceptional leader that’s ready to raise the game for everyone on day one.
