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 10, comprising a core group of dedicated recruitment consultants, a marketing executive and an administration manager.

On a day-to-day basis, we work hard to deliver a personal and tailored recruitment service to the people we work with. 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

"Duane and Paula at Realm have been enormously helpful and effective in assisting us with recruitment. They have listened carefully to our brief; where appropriate, have suggested alternative solutions; have managed our expectations realistically; and have been very focussed in their selection of the candidates they have offered us for consideration. 

They have clearly briefed the candidates well about us; have followed up interviews promptly, and have been our best advocates to the applicants. The effect of all this is that we have a high success rate for recruitment, so far a high retention rate, and it is an effective and therefore commercial use of our time. 

Overall, Realm provide an excellent, focussed service." 

– Mark Hirst, Managing Partner, Bromleys

I was impressed with Paula's proactiveness and response in finding suitable candidates, particularly compared to other agencies. I would highly recommend her!

– Anthony Jones, Director and Head of Family and Children Law, O'Donnell Solicitors

"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)

"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

"Kelly's help was invaluable in expanding my team. She was accommodating and incredibly helpful. I am very happy to recommend her."

– Michele Wightman, Partner, Keebles Solicitors
