Launched in 2015, Yolk’s Healthcare recruitment division is headed up by Kate Turner who holds over 12 years in international healthcare recruitment.

We listen first, ensuring we find both the client and the candidate the perfect fit for their future.

Yolk Healthcare cover large scale recruitment projects, as seen below with examples including high volume nursing requirements for Hallmark Care Homes and SilverCrest Care, while also covering bespoke recruitment vacancies, whether that’s a hard to fill Operation Director or Director of Nursing.

  • Registered nurses

  • Anaesthetics and recovery nurses

"We take pride in offering both the client and candidate a streamlined recruitment process that includes the best in the business post placement care. The Healthcare industry is at the beating heart of our country and we know what a demanding line of work it can be.

We make sure all of our nurses are fully integrated into their new role, helping both sides iron out any initial worries or concerns and we will check in regularly to ensure that everyone is happy."

What We've Been Up To

  1. Nursing recruitment days, with Hallmark Healthcare
    1. We’ve previously run a number of highly attended recruitment days for Hallmark Care Homes.

      Yolk and Hallmark worked together in partnership across the two day event for registered nurses, and they were held at both Yolk’s office premises as well as on-site at Hallmark Care Homes.

  2. Healthcare Superstars
    1. As part of the global, 'Nursing Now' campaign raising the profile and status of nurses worldwide, we wanted to celebrate all of the unsung healthcare professional heroes out there by dropping in with some treats for our monthly winners. Nominations could be either a colleague, member of staff or a friend.

      Congrats to our recent winner Karen at Silvercrest Care Homes!

  3. McMillan Coffee mornings
    1. Over the years we have supported MacMillan Cancer with coffee mornings at Yolk’s Cardiff office, hosted by our very our Healthcare superstar recruiter, Kate Turner.
