Analogous to a sports team which sends out professional scouts to identify and acquire the best current and emerging talent, Martin Kingston & Associates can be engaged as a Talent Scout for your organization, seeking, attracting, and acquiring the best talent working today.

Our Talent Scout Service is especially useful for clients requiring:

  • a specific talent profile that (when found) can be hired at anytime
  • a deep base of future prospect, top quality, qualified candidates for anticipated or planned future openings
  • a dedicated partner able to "build a bench" of the very best talent
Pro-actively targeting individuals at the top of their industry or profession is a clearly defined strategic initiative designed to identify and attract candidates that can address future recruiting requirements, versus a reactive approach that may involve filling a current vacancy.
