"Having worked for my previous employer for nearly 26 years and facing redundancy on 30th June along with many of my friends and colleagues, I’m delighted to have secured a new role with a Digital Bank as an Intelligence Officer. I would like to recommend a wonderful recruiter for the financial services industry Jessica Harmer of Yolk Recruitment. I have heard disappointing stories from colleagues not getting feedback following interviews or not hearing back from recruiters but Jess is another level and has first class communication and is so determined to support you in your search for employment!”
“Yolk have provided a first class service at a personal level in recruitment at all levels. Most recently a key position of Financial Controller which was successfully filled within a month of the position becoming available. Candidates were chosen carefully having listened to our specific requirements. A wide choice was given allowing us to pick the best possible candidate. Arranging to come and see us to discuss the final short list and guide us in making our final choice to fill the position was a first for me and indicative of both the professional and personal service provided by Yolk. I have no hesitation in recommending Yolk based on the high levels of service and wide choice of suitable candidates put forward.”
Sharp, considerate and efficient to boot. They only called with relevant and personable jobs for me, guiding me through each process. I have been on the temporary circuit for a while and I've been blown away by just how fantastic they are, credit where credit's due. I'm now perfectly happy in the position Josh handpicked for me. Thank you so much, exceeded my expectations by a long shot.
"After struggling to find the right candidate elsewhere, we fell upon the angel that is Yolk Recruitment. Both Merle & Josh listened to our needs and provided us with some excellent choices, so excellent in fact that we struggled to just choose one candidate! Having small offices, we were delighted when Yolk offered their beautiful space to conduct the interviews. They are a cut above the rest in our opinion."
Yolk Finance: Make your Career Count
In February 2020 we headed to Swansea University to run a workshop session with Accountancy graduates offering them career and recruitment advice. This also included a webinar beforehand run by our Finance Recruitment Consultant Josh, and both sessions included advice on CV writing and job applying.
Cheese & Wine Networking Event
We held a cheese & wine networking evening in October 2019 with a panel of guest speakers from Admiral Group, Principality Building Society, Innogy Renewables UK and Helen Morgan. With plenty of cheese and wine in supply, and a room full of client and candidates the event was a great success!
