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 13, comprising a core group of dedicated recruitment consultants, a small marketing team and an office manager.

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.

"I have worked with Joseph at Realm Recruit since joining Kindertons in October 2016 and found him to be consultative with an accurate perception regarding the calibre of candidates required in various teams at Jigsaw Law and the expertise I need them to possess.

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." 

– Melanie Meakin, Recruitment Manager, Jigsaw Law Ltd (part of Slater & Gordon)
