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


How would you describe yourself in 3 words?

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 the office?

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.

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.
