I graduated from Leeds Beckett University with a 2:1 in Business and Human Resource Management. Upon graduating I opted to pursue a career in recruitment as the recruitment elements of his HR orientated course interested me the most.
At Realm, I specialise in the recruitment of personal injury lawyers, including clinical negligence and catastrophic injury solicitors and fee-earners. I also recruit insurance and litigation lawyers. I work across the North West, focusing on the Manchester and Liverpool legal markets.
In 2018, I won the award for Young Recruitment Professional of the Year at the Insider Young Professionals Awards.

Committed, attentive and innovative
What’s your favourite thing about working at Realm?
The supportive team environment and our flexibility in terms of our working hours which allows us all to have a great work-life balance.
How do you unwind after a busy day at work?
I usually take my dog Jeff out for a walk, get out on my bike for a few hours whenever I can or binge on midweek football.
What people say about Joseph...
I approached Realm Recruit when I saw a job being advertised by them which I was interested in applying for after I was told I was being made redundant.
I had contact with Joseph throughout the whole process - he was professional, kind and supportive, which made the process so much easier. He even emailed one Friday night to advise that I was going to receive an offer, so that I wasn't waiting over the weekend! Very good service, thank you.

We have used Realm Recruit for a number of years now. The main person there who deals with personal injury and clinical negligence recruitment is Joseph Shenton.
Joe is always proactive without being too pushy and has found us some great candidates. He is very good at keeping us informed as to what is going on and puts candidates forward who can not only do the job, but who will also be a good fit for the firm and its values
