I would like to say a huge thank you to Mr. Dan Mason, for his great help in finding me a suitable role, and resolving an unforeseen, difficult problem in forming a contract with the new company. He followed up closely, supported me and the company through the whole process and has been such an encouraging presence. I would recommend Yolk and in particular Dan to anyone who is looking for a new role. Thanks again!
I have the highest praise for Yolk Recruitment, based on my recent experience. Oliver Coodye called me early on August 30, took my information, and through his hard work and dedication, set up 3 appointments leading to me gaining employment on September 5 with a fabulous company. He also called me regularly to keep me informed. 11 out of 10 from me!
I was reluctant to trust a recruitment agency due to previous experiences. Nicole changed this perception and ensured I had all the resources available to properly prepare for my interview. Nicole offered to have a practice interview so I was fully prepared. She kept me up to date the whole way through which shows her passion, support, and primary aim. This felt like a very personalised service and I would recommend Yolk and Nicole!
"Yolk Legal's recruiters are highly personable and it shows from their great networks. They took the time to understand the exact requirements of the role to ensure they put forward the best candidates to us, which converted to a highly successful placement rate. Once placed Yolk Legal would always conduct a post placement meeting. I still recommend Yolk to those that still work within the field."
Nicole was a great support and friend to me in my job search. She went above and beyond to ensure that I was comfortable with putting a business plan together and even helped me format it before sending to my future employer. Through her professionalism and dedication she enabled me to air my concerns and develop the confidence to ask for more clarity from my new employer and she kindly checked in on me regularly to see if I was okay.
"I worked with Yolk Legal during my time spent as a HR Advisor for Redkite Law LLP. Yolk were superb at allowing me to take a hands off approach to recruiting while they sourced and vetted candidates. Candidates put forward were always of a high caliber. Yolk's recruiter's communication skills were second to none as they seamlessly kept both myself and each candidate informed throughout each recruitment process, every step of the way."
