    Pros

    Training, people, office environment. It's a place where you are valued and your career is as important to Yolk as it is to you.

    Cons

    Yolk are the fastest growing agency in Wales so there can sometimes be growing pains. But they are always positive changes that enable the consultants to do a better job or earn more. It's better than working in a small, stale environment with no ambition.

    Cons

    + base salaries aren't the highest but you'll make more money with the best commission structure and bonuses + the lads hog the pool table and ps4 + 8.15am start to capture the best talent (i'm not an early bird!)

    Advice to Management

    Keep engaging with your staff, listening to their needs and rewarding them for their hard work.

    Cons

    Whist the amenities of the city centre are walkable there is very little in the immediate vicinity for lunch so advice would be to bring your own and enjoy the break out area.

    Pros

    The Directors are well respected in the industry, they will go above and beyond to help you succeed in your career not just as their employee. The company has invested heavily in tech and tools that simplifies the role and helps you get ahead of your competitors. Definitely one of the top 10 best offices in Wales. They embrace new ideas and give you the freedom to run your desk how you want to - Providing you perform...

    Cons

    Not necessarily a negative but the people that struggle are the people that sit in silence, worried about asking for guidance. If you don't know something or need help never be afraid to ask (anyone) for it. Other consultants will go out of their way to guide you but they do have targets too.

    Cons

    Apart from the obvious (work a 4 day week, get a £10k pay rise!) Dunc and Dale run a good ship.

    Advice to Management

    The introduction of annual employee satisfaction surveys can be a good way to gauge the overall feel of staff and receive suggestions for ideas and improvements.

    I have been working at Yolk Recruitment full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Around 18 months ago I took the plunge from working in a educational/public sector environment to recruitment. I can safely say it's the best decision I've ever made. I started on the associate scheme and had a very thorough 12 week training programme - to this day of course i'm still learning from the Senior Consultants/managers/directors. I've already had my first promotion and i'm on track to have another by the...

    Cons

    One of the directors is a closet Sutton fan *claims to be a Chelsea fan* , the other is a Liverpool fan and is horrendous at Fifa..... Unfortunately you can't have it all.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, great working environment and culture.. make sure all of the target clubs are on a fair level.
