Yolk Recruitment announced as 2022 annual sponsors for Bristol Junior Lawyer Division
Yolk Recruitment’s Legal division have been announced as the first official 2022 annual sponsor for the Bristol Junior Lawyers Division (Bristol JLD).
The sponsorship will start January 2022, and will see Yolk Recruitment and Bristol JLD working together on two large events for Bristol and the South-West’s junior legal professionals.
Yolk Recruitment’s Legal division has been in operation since 2014. Initially focused on South Wales, following rapid growth the Legal recruitment team developed quickly to also focus on Bristol and the South-West. Yolk Legal are the go-to agency for Legal firms and professionals looking to find the perfect fit for the next step in their team’s growth and careers.
Yolk Legal’s South-West recruitment team includes Rebecca Bond, Principal Consultant, who will play a major role in the new sponsorship with Bristol JLD, and she is supported by Abbie Lucas, Associate Consultant. Rebecca and Abbie, and the rest of Yolk Recruitment, are thrilled to be annual sponsors of the Bristol JLD and look forward to continuing to support current and new members with new legal opportunities as well as local Legal firms and businesses with recruitment services, market insights and advice.
The Bristol JLD is an unincorporated group of trainee solicitors, paralegals, students, recently qualified solicitors, and other legal professionals in the Bristol regional area. Led by a committee of tireless volunteers, they organise social events, career training, sporting events, charitable fundraising, and much more. They also provide a voice for all junior lawyers in the Bristol area, whether feeding back to the national level or giving members opportunities to network in a comfortable atmosphere with peers.
Rebecca Bond said “I’m incredibly proud of the relationship that we have built with The Bristol Junior Lawyers Division, including both previous and current Chairs of the Bristol JLD. A big thank you to Mark Holloway for helping to coordinate this new partnership, and Yolk Legal are excited to continue working closely with the newly appointed committee in 2022.”
As annual sponsors, Yolk Legal will be supporting two of Bristol JLD’s biggest events in 2022. These include the coordination of a summer boat party for all Bristol JLD members which will take place at Bristol’s picturesque water side.
Following this Yolk Legal will also sponsor and support with 2022’s Christmas party for all members, which allows for another big opportunity for local legal talent in Bristol and the South-West to network with like-minded professionals.
As well as offering the best-in-class recruitment services across South Wales and the South-West, a pillar in Yolk’s culture is encouraging and feeding into the networks that we operate in and creating fun, inclusive and engaging celebratory events to congratulate local talent. Yolk Recruitment can’t wait to help support with these events and continue to work with Bristol Junior Lawyers Division through-out 2022.
The annual sponsorship will run alongside Bristol JLD’s existing partners who run additional events throughout the year.
