I am grateful for all the help you have given me in the interview process and how you were always available and your advice was always helpful.  It has been a pleasure working with Yolk Recruitment and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend or work with you again in the future.  Thank you for everything!

    Tyler

  • ​Thank you Phil for all your help and support with Engineering recruitment, your continued efforts are hugely appreciated. You’ve been a pleasure to work with, and I look forward to our paths crossing again!

    Client

    Process Engineering Manager

  • ​Phil is a true professional, someone who is driven and passionate about achieving the best results for his customers. Phil has always gone that extra mile and has always updated me at regular intervals, this has been reassuring especially through Covid. I can’t speak highly enough of my successful experience with Phil, someone whom I would highly recommend.

    Candidate

    Manufacturing Process Improvement Engineer

  • ​Phil is a true credit to the recruitment industry in many ways, and is truly a 'people person' in every sense. During a difficult time in my career, Phil was of great support and comfort, even ringing me to see how I was getting on when he had nothing available. Rather than just a number, Phil made me feel valued and displayed true professionalism. A top person who receives my highest recommendation, and a credit to Yolk Recruitment!

    Candidate

    Production Controller

  • ​My experience with Phil as a recruiter has been exceptional. I couldn’t be more impressed with his approach. He is someone who understood my ambition and has gone the extra mile to help me achieve my desired career. Phil has brought professional advice at all stages of my employment and has helped open doors for my progression. I highly recommend both Phil and Yolk recruitment.

    Candidate

  • ​I had a brilliant experience with Andy Jones from Yolk Engineering. Professional, informative and always quick to answer any questions. He found me a perfect match with the company I am now in.Highly recommend Yolk Engineering and thank you, Andy!

    Candidate

  • ​The Royal Mint has worked closely with Yolk Recruitment since 2009.They have proved very effective in their methods and I have been particularly impressed with the level of customer service they provide not only The Royal Mint but also the candidates that they represent. Should I need advice or guidance on a particular role, I know I can trust the team at Yolk to provide me with an unbiased, professional and honest consultation which I value.

    HR Manager

  • ​Yolk have been instrumental in the successful delivery of Renold’s growth ambitions in 2016/2017. The quality of candidates presented to us by Yolk is far higher than we previously received from other agencies. Now I don’t even need to see the CV to arrange an interview and I can’t remember when I didn’t make an offer to someone I’ve interviewed. The team at Yolk have always filled us with the confidence that they can deliver – and they do!

    Operations Manager

  • Having already worked with Phil and his team on permanent recruitment projects, it was a no-brainer to turn to Yolk when we had a need for a temporary team of Production Operatives. Relying on their recruitment knowledge and processes has been incredibly important when getting the new team recruited, on-boarded, and the financial and legal admin sorted immediately. We can’t recommend Phil and his Engineering recruitment team enough.

    Gary Dowthwaite PhD

  • I'd just like to thank you for Phil and the team at Yolk for helping me find my perfect role with such a fantastic company - the advice and guidance you have offered through this process has been second to none and I feel that your approach has been completely informed with no frills or false information in an honest and well intentioned manner with complete professional management of my expectations.

    Candidate

  • "I have worked with recruitment companies for 30 years. I can honestly say Yolk are the first recruitment company to really listen to our requirements, understand our culture change programme and rapid expansion plans and to deliver on the brief. A no nonsense, added value approach."

    Managing Director

  • "From the very first phone call Phil was very friendly and easy to get along with. He laid out his plan for me clearly and put me at ease that we'd find a job fairly easily. Phil was in constant contact with any news and gave out very good advice on what to do at the interview stage. I wouldn't hesitate to use Yolk and Phil again if needed and will be recommending to friends if they are looking for work."

  • "I have had the pleasure of working with Christian over the last 5 years, he placed me in a superb role 4 years ago and has now placed me in an even better role. He has the rare attribute of being very professional and driven but retains the personal touch. He has become a good friend over the years and I wouldn’t think twice about recommending him if you are looking for a recruitment consultant personally or an employer looking at the bigger ...

    Candidate

  • "Phil is a true credit to the recruitment industry in many ways, and is truly a 'people person' in every sense. During a difficult time in my career, Phil was of great support and comfort, even ringing me to see how I was getting on when he had nothing available which was definitely a first. Rather than just a number, Phil made me feel valued and eventually placed me with a fantastic company and culture. This was after receiving two separate o...

    Production Planner

    Candidate

  • My experience working with Yolk Recruitment has been professional, friendly and crucial to advancing my career to where it is today. After finding myself in a position looking for a new role within electronics in South Wales, I began getting calls from countless other agencies who often half-heartedly tried to sell me a job outside of where I was looking geographically, and some of the time the job itself didn’t even exist. When I first spo...
