Why Big hitters join Yolk

The way we do things at Yolk has drawn some pretty special people to us.

  • Steve Shuttlewood

    I met with both Dale and Duncan and it was clear that the synergy was apparent from the first meeting. I wanted to be part of the Yolk family immediately. 

    The business is forward thinking and open to change and we never want to stand still like so many other recruiters. We are constantly striving to be better and never rest on our goal to be the number 1 recruiter in South Wales and the South West.

    We celebrate together and support each other through the tough times. We of course have many challenges but it’s the small things we do, that little bit extra, that sets us apart.

    Divisional Head

  • Kate Turner

    After 10 years in the wonderful world of recruitment, I can honestly say that out of the three companies I have worked for, Yolk is by far my favourite.

    I love working at Yolk because I feel like I am left to run my own desk. I feel almost self-employed, and the harder I work the more money I make. Yolk pays one of the highest commission structures on the South Wales recruitment market.

    I have never once felt like a ‘bum on a seat.’ I really do feel valued and supported by both Dale and Duncan. This has enabled me to reach my own personal recruitment goals and earn more money than I could have ever imagined.

Why Rookies join Yolk

We invest in our new recruits, helping them learn the ropes and map out their careers with us. 

  • Aaron Elliot

    I started at Yolk around 2 and half years ago, I had no recruitment experience, not even any sales experience. But I had an intense, fun and unique training programme which helped me understand how to be a top recruiter.

    From starting off as an Associate to being promoted to Senior Consultant, you get such fantastic support and encouragement from senior management, if you put the work in the doors will open for you.

    If you don’t want career progression, excellent earning potential, quality lunches and various social events, then Yolk isn’t for you.

    Senior Consultant

  • Victoria Gunstone

    Like many others in Yolk, I had previous recruitment experience when I joined, but I can honestly say Yolk is where my recruitment career really started. Yolk provided indepth training including classroom discussions and ‘on the floor’ work, but most importantly I was supported all the way. For me, this is where Yolk stand out from the rest.

    Most companies don’t offer the same supportive and positive attitude that everybody has here, from associate consultants all the way up to the Directors.  Now I'm running my own desk within IT and mentoring associate consultants. Yolk has allowed me to advance personally and professionally.
