“I’ve trusted Yolk to source developers and other technical roles for Wealthify and other businesses for years. They understand our company culture and technology stack, and have supported us in building a talented and loyal team. We value the close working relationship we have with Yolk over working with agencies further afield.”
"Steve and the team at Yolk Recruitment did a fantastic job helping us to grow a first-class development team from scratch. Ensuring that our specific requirements were well understood, the team worked not only to find candidates with right skills but, importantly, the right fit for our company culture and fast-paced start-up environment."
"I recently worked with Steve on an assignment to a Public Sector organisation and found him very hard working and supportive, from acquiring the assignment in the first place, working through the confusion of new IR35 contract issues, as well as ongoing housekeeping and support throughout the contract life span. I absolutely look forward to working with him again."
"Steve at Yolk recruitment helped me to make the jump into the world of contracting. As well as finding me an excellent first contract opportunity in an ideal location and utilising the most appropriate technologies for my skillset, he provided excellent support. He visited me onsite on more than one occasion to ensure that it was a suitable placement and provided plenty of support with any queries around submitting time sheets. A consummate professional at every step of the way."
"Working with Yolk Recruitment has been a pleasure over the last twelve months, they have engaged with HEFCE's values, culture and understand what managers need from a candidate filling a role. They take the time to get to know the organisation and understand what is needed from each role, they take the time to come and meet our managers at our offices to understand how best someone can fit in the teams. This has proven to work as they identify great candidates to fill our roles even when sometimes we give them short time scales. I have found they are professional and honest in how they conduct their business and always feel I can pick up the phone to Steve and he always has time to have a chat and/ or give advice."
