Scout & Maven are purveyors and curators of the very best sales talent in Food and Beverage


Scout & Maven is a boutique talent procurement agency, born of a desire to bring traditional values back to recruitment with the Food and Beverage arena.

We marry the very best of modern recruitment technologies with tried and tested traditional methodologies and practices to deliver an unrivalled, A La Carte service to our clients and candidates.

We are driven by a desire to provide a world-class, personalised service and be recognised as the “best in class”.

The founders of Scout & Maven started their careers with a Rolodex and a telephone building a reputation based on hard-work, honour, relationships and results.

In a sea of “key board warriors” and homogenised recruiters driven by KPIs and metrics we aim to set ourselves apart by embodying the values and ethics which were instilled in us over the past 15 years, values we believe are sorely missing from today’s industry.

We make no apology for our “old-fashioned” approach. For us recruitment is personal.



Scout & Maven offer Sales and Marketing talent acquisition solutions across the Food and Beverage industries.

As specialists in our sector for over 15 years we have built a wealth of knowledge through long-standing industry relationships and market intelligence gained through internal exposure to trade events, associations and media.

We provide clients and candidates alike access to our unrivalled network of resources within the Foodservice, Grocery, On trade and Off-Trade sectors.

We guarantee to offer a personal, tailor-made solution specific to your recruitment need. Whether you are looking for people or a position our uncompromising approach will never change
