About Us

Our mission

We believe in treating lawyers like people, not candidates. And we believe in treating law firms like valued partners, not just transactional customers.

 

Our vision

To become the leading specialist legal recruitment consultancy in the regional market, whilst recognising that when it comes to life-work balance, life is the more important of the two.

Our story

Unhappy with the scattergun approach of some recruiters, we set up Realm in 2015 to offer something different. Over the last 5 years, we’ve grown from a team of two to a team of 17, comprising a core group of dedicated recruitment consultants, an in-house marketing team, a devoted office manager and an enthusiastic administration executive.

On a day-to-day basis, we work hard to deliver a personal and tailored recruitment service. We’re truly passionate about the people we work with and are committed to developing long-term mutually beneficial relationships with both lawyers and law firms.

In January 2018, we decided to narrow our focus and hone our proposition.

We have specialists in all core legal practice areas, with each of our consultants working within a single legal niche. Their focused approach has enabled them to develop an unrivalled depth of market knowledge and build a solid reputation as an expert within their specialist area.

Through our refreshing approach, underpinned by our five core values – to be refreshingly collaborative, consultative, dynamic, human, and niche – we help to develop careers and sustainably grow law firms.


Whether you’re a hiring manager looking for talented legal personnel or a lawyer looking for an exciting new challenge, we are ready to help you.

Call us on 03300 245 606 to speak to one of our specialist legal recruitment consultants.

Testimonials

"Kelly did a fantastic job of finding us a new private client fee earner.

Great service and communication - I would be definitely recommend Kelly and her team."

– Sarah Clowes, Partner, Clowes & Co Solicitors

"Paula was fantastic – she clearly had top candidates in mind when we first met but she took the time to listen to our needs, ethos and plans before suggesting anyone to meet. The first candidate we met was the one who eventually joined us so her instinct was right.
 
Paula communicated throughout the process and followed up in a personable way; ensuring both us and the candidate had settled in well. 
 
I would certainly recommend Paula for any future recruitment needs."

Joseph is always honest with the candidate and market information that he passes onto us and this allows us to make informed decisions. He is pleasant and easy to do business with. Joseph and Realm are our first port of call when a new need arises."

Joe is extremely professional at all times and grasps our needs very quickly. He communicates with us and the candidate throughout the recruitment process and is always willing to go the extra mile to see the deal completed."
