I am a Senior Recruitment Consultant with more than ten years' legal recruitment experience and am well-connected in the North West, Midlands and Yorkshire.

How would you describe yourself in 3 words?

I’d say I was thoughtful, bubbly and positive.

What’s your favourite thing about working at Realm?

The best things working at Realm would be the people I work with because we all get on well, and having the flexibility to be mum at home with the kids so I can do school pick up, take them to swimming lessons, and taxi my son to football.

How do you unwind after a busy day at work?

The chance to unwind would be amazing! I can only unwind when the kids are in bed. Then I watch crap TV, drink wine and eat chocolate!


What people say about Kelly...

Kelly was professional, efficient and supportive throughout. She enabled me to achieve three interviews and the perfect position. I would highly recommend her.

Lucy Fowler, Private Client Solicitor at JMW


I have recently worked with Kelly on a difficult role to fill due to a lack of candidates on the market for Private Client.

Kelly was really helpful throughout - she listened to what I was looking for and actively applied that to the candidates she was representing so the candidate on paper was perfect and in person even more so!

She is responsive and works hard to understand the role and our 'ideal'. It is a refreshing and reassuring approach. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her services!
