Recruitment Roadmap to Recovery


Get your business back in shape with Yolk's recovery roadmap

The Challenges

  • HR function: the potential down-sizing, or loss, of your HR or Talent Acquisition function due to financial pressures
  • Business restructure: restructuring your business and/or departments and adoption of flexible ways of working
  • Health & safety: implementing social distancing measures to ensure the safety of your workforce and monitoring employee mental well-being
  • Recruitment strategy: scrapping and rewriting your recruitment strategy
  • Redundancies & outplacements: difficult decisions to be made in regards to redundancies and the need to offer outplacing solutions to staff being made redundant
  • Extra demand: Alternatively, your business could be thriving in the new economic climate and you need support with a boom in recruitment
  • Resources: need access to collateral to share internally to keep staff educated on remote working best practices.

We’re all facing unparalleled challenges and new obstacles we hadn’t originally planned for, and we’d like to help businesses weather this uncertain time and come out the other end fighting with their business still in a healthy condition.

The Process

Recruitment done right takes time. But the long term benefits it will have on your business are huge. There isn’t a one size fits all solution for businesses, so every project will differ, but here’s the initial plan to show how we would work together over the course of 12 months:


How we have achieved this for other businesses

We’ve worked with a wealth of clients in a similar manner. Before Covid-19 we’d partnered with clients to deliver project driven recruitment solutions, and during Covid-19, we have worked with businesses that needed to adapt their employment scope due to the pandemic. Here’s a couple of examples of those clients:

“Yolk were a huge help when BookingLive began hiring for new developers based in Cardiff. Yolk’s Technology & Digital team have an excellent grasp on their industry, they took the time to not only understand the role and tech stack, but BookingLive as a company to ensure the candidates they put forward met the requirements of the role in all aspects. Yolk go the extra mile when it comes to the entire recruitment process and provide a refreshing, consultative approach.

They gave us advice and guidance through-out the hiring process, reacting to our requirements quickly with unbiased and honest feedback.

Yolk offered us access to their office space which was really helpful when meeting local talent in Cardiff. Yolk have also been involved after the placement, ensuring the candidates settled in well which was especially important when on-boarding new starters during the start of lockdown.

The team at Yolk are personable, professional and helpful. It was a pleasure partnering with them on our recent recruitment drive, and we’re looking forward to our next intake when we can work together again.”

Louise Chawich, Chief People Officer


“Having already worked with Phil and his team on permanent recruitment projects, it was a no-brainer to turn to Yolk Engineering when we had a sudden need for a temporary team
of Production Operatives.

With temporary recruitment being a brand new way of hiring for us, partnering with Yolk meant the project was tackled swiftly, we were confident that the best candidates were delivered, and we’ve been able to hit our strict deadlines on time. Relying on their recruitment knowledge and processes has been incredibly important when getting the new team recruited, on-boarded, and the financial and legal admin sorted immediately.

With the impact of Covid-19 meaning demands are high for medical diagnostics businesses such as ourselves, we can’t recommend Phil and his Engineering recruitment team enough when it comes to delivering a professional and quality driven service at speed, especially during such a turbulent time for many businesses.”
