What makes Skout so special?

What makes us different

What we stand for

Openness creates opportunities

As a team we have the integrity to deliver on our promises, fostering trust in everything we say and do. As an employer we create an environment to nurture honest and open conversations and actions. For our clients we are not afraid to speak out to help them achieve their goal.

A brand we believe in!

In the summer of 2021, we teamed up with Rumba Tiki Lounge in Macclesfield to create a special cocktail to celebrate the launch of our new brand!

Our brilliant, bright new brand colours and gradients reminded us somewhat of a tequila sunrise cocktail, so, after an excitable brainstorm, we thought what better way to celebrate the launch of our brilliant new brand than with our own bespoke cocktail! Watch it being created below.
