    I co-founded Yolk in 2009 and the company has grown exponentially. I’m proud that our vision and leadership has shaped it into a recruitment business that people love to work for, and that clients are always ready to recommend. 

    My focus is on building the most unique, engaging and high performing recruitment business for our people so that they can in turn offer the most quality driven, creative and bespoke solutions for our clients and candidates.

    Managing Director

    I co-founded Yolk with the aim of building an ambitious and exciting company based on the principles of being bright, bold, and better for our clients, candidates and all our amazing people.

    As MD, I drive the company’s profitability and direction. I work closely with our senior management team to make sure that we’re being the best we can be; that we’re delivering the kind of service that reflects the Yolk brand.

    Finance Director

    Having spent 10 years in private practice before acting as Finance Director for an International Medical Supplies and Property Development business, I’ve had the privilege of working with some of South Wales' fastest growing, dynamic businesses.

    My expertise is in fast-growth. It’s also my passion; I love to help ambitious businesses develop. It’s what drew me to Yolk.

    Client Services Director

    I’m responsible for nurturing relationships with key clients and ensuring Service Level Agreements are met and expectations exceeded. I work closely with clients to find intelligent solutions to their recruitment needs as well as unearthing and capitalising on new opportunities for large contact wins. I continually seek to improve the way we partner with our clients so we can provide the ultimate client and candidate experience.   

  • David Jenkins

    Business Development Manager, Private Sector

    I focus on developing new business for Yolk and reach out to new clients.

    I get an understanding of their recruitment needs and ensure we're working with businesses in South Wales ranging from SME's to blue chip key accounts. 

    I originally joined Yolk as a consultant specialising in National sales recruitment and worked my way up to managing the Sales Recruitment division.
