  • "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."

    Roger Whitehouse, 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."

    Dafydd Bright


  • “Having worked closely with Yolk Recruitment on a number of recruitment assignments, I have no hesitation in recommending them for your recruitment needs. The success of Yolk Recruitment is their emphasis on building relationships with clients and developing an indepth knowledge of both the business and the candidate. We have enjoyed a personable, professional service with Yolk Recruitment and envisage them being a business partner to satisfy Fluidmaster UK’s future recruitment needs.”

    Sue Cole, HRM

  • "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 picture."
