As our ambitious growth plans continue, Yolk Recruitment are excited to welcome Gareth Burford to the team to operationally enhance our multi-divisional business.

On joining Yolk, Gareth’s focus will be to build on the successful foundations of our recruitment consultancy performance, ensuring Yolk’s divisions are working at optimum efficiency so that we are offering our clients and candidates the best possible recruitment service.

On the appointment, Dale Williams, Group CEO has said,

“Following a sustained period of exceptional growth, it had become apparent that we required extra experience within our available management bandwidth to support our team of highly skilled, loyal people, to achieve their ambitions. Gareth’s experience in engaging diverse teams across multiple disciplines will help us to integrate our business so that all divisions and stakeholders are working as collaboratively as possible to continue in our mission of reshaping recruitment.”

Gareth’s experience in recruitment has been developed with over 15 years at the recruitment firm, Randstad. Initially starting as a trainee consultant on the temporary desk, over the years he diversified into a more commercial role across both temporary and permanent recruitment.

Developing further, he was promoted to Cardiff’s branch manager, which was followed by helping to steer the Bristol branch, which went onto become the most profitable regional office during his two years there.

Gareth then moved into an Operational role where his passion was helping consultants and managers become experts within their verticals, ensuring recruiters were able to offer their clients and candidates a completely specialist experience.

Gareth’s experience of coaching team members, from associates through to divisional heads is incredibly exciting for Yolk, as he will be focused on the people element of our business. Using performance data and getting to know all the people within our business, Gareth will be able to help map out personal development and performance plans for Yolk’s consultants.

By coaching our people to reach their full potential, Gareth will be helping to elevate our day-to-day operations and how we can all work together to enhance our business offering.

On his appointment at Yolk, Gareth says,

This is a very exciting time to be joining Yolk, who’ve had so many great achievements over the years, I feel very fortunate to be a part of a very experienced team and will pull on all my experience to support the growth of the people to achieve their career goals. I can’t wait to get to know everyone personally and professionally and build on the successful foundations of the business.”

Gareth’s goal at Yolk is to empower our people to grow within the organisation while offering a best-in-class and valuable recruitment service to our clients and candidates. Yolk are thrilled to welcome Gareth to the team, and we look forward to reaching the next stage in our ambitious growth plans with the best recruiters in the business.
