Our Staff

Scott Stiles, Co-Founder and CEO

Scott is the Co-Founder and CEO of the Fair Employment Foundation which seeks to make exploitative recruitment unprofitable and realign the incentives of all stakeholders in the recruitment process. FEF does this by building and testing ethical recruitment agency and training centre models.

After an internship in Hong Kong, Scott spent his last year at university developing a business plan for an ethical placement agency that would set a new standard for the broken recruitment market. He and his co-founders realised the plan as Fair Employment Agency. Since 2014, FEF initiatives continues to set new standards for recruitment and training, improving the eco-system of migrant worker recruitment.

Recognised as an Ashoka Fellow and one of Forbes “30 Under 30” social entrepreneurs in Asia, Scott is now based in Manila, building out the next stage of FEF’s interventions to end exploitative recruitment at greater scale, in other migrant work industries and geographies.

 

Scott is convinced that business can solve forced labour globally.
