Our Role Functional Area Expertise

Join the Y Scouts Leadership Community

By joining the Y Scouts Leadership Community, you’ve signaled to our team that you are open to hearing from us if one of our open roles could potentially match your qualifications. This does not guarantee someone will be reaching out. We are a small, but mighty, executive search team that works side by side with our clients to strategically seek out candidates who fit the criteria for open roles.

A factor that differentiates Y Scouts from other executive search firms is one of our key principles: the Y Scouts Covert Discovery Process.  We don’t publicize the clients we’re working with or the roles for which we’re hiring. Intentionally.  We believe in learning about our candidates in an genuine way and allowing them to be fully authentic in who they are and what makes them unique, rather than feeling the pressure of trying to align to a specific role or company.
