Wales’ Centre for Digital Public Services (CDPS) has entered a partnership with Cardiff based Yolk Recruitment to help public sector organisations fill critical digital, data and technology (DDaT) roles.
The three-year agreement, valued at up to £15 million, will also involve the provision of specialist advice and support, and will apply to sector including local government, education and healthcare.
Yolk has a dedicated public sector team and is committed to meeting net zero goals by 2030.
Increasing talent pool
Myra Hunt, joint CEO of CDPS, said: “We're excited to welcome Yolk on board as our strategic partner. By working together we hope to increase the pool of talent and increase the number of appropriately digital skilled people delivering public services in Wales.
“We're confident that by working together, we'll be able to develop a modern public sector in Wales that delivers services people can access in a way which suits their needs.”
Nici Jones, Yolk’s director of public sector and not-for-profit, commented: As a Wales based company, we have particular insight into the challenges and skills shortages faced by recruiters here, especially in the digital sector.”
