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.

Testimonials

"I found Paula on LinkedIn when struggling with a lengthy search to find the right person to bring in to expand our Family Team. Paula was "on it" from the get-go. She took the time to learn about us, what we wanted and most importantly who would fit with our current team culture and ethos.

The dedication she puts into her search is reflected by the high-quality candidates she puts forward. She makes the process from start to finish seamless. Paula is certainly my go-to recruiter and I would highly recommend her to candidates and recruiters alike."

– Carly Colclough, Director, Nowell Meller Solicitors Limited
