Who We Are
Chief Executive Officer
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.
Chief Operating Officer
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 COO, 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.

I identify new business in the private sector, allowing Yolk to partner with clients who are undergoing growth and discovering how Yolk can take this to the next level.
