    I worked at Yolk Recruitment full-time

    Pros

    Strong leadership, social activities, progression structure. On site parking, great benefits, lovely office environment. They pay for you to have the whole of Christmas off! Ethical recruitment by a company that always thinks about it's clients best interests which isn't always the case in recruitment.

    Cons

    Recruitment is really really tough and you have to be resilient to match the results of the Top Performers.

    Pros

    I started here at yolk 6 months ago and I am so glad I made the decision to do so. I have worked in various offices and companies and can honestly say that it is definitely the best by far. The company constantly reward you if you work hard with incentives, days/ Nights out, and even trips abroad! Its not a place where you wake up in the morning and don't want to go to. The people are friendly and everyone gets on well. I would definitely recommend joining yolk!!

    Cons

    I cant think of anything

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

    Pros

    An office filled with fun, hard working and supportive people. Brilliant employee benefits including free birthday & Christmas days off, as well as a bunch of social events through-out the year. Fast growing business has meant a huge variation of work and skills developed from a marketing perspective. No two days are the same with a range of work events through-out the year and day-to-day BAU keeping you on your toes. Trusting managers meaning you can get on with your job without being micro-managed and have more responsibility for your work and input into the company.

    Cons

    Lunch spots for the area aren't great.
