Paula Pawlowska

Associate Director and Family Team Lead


Cheshire, Childcare, Family, Lancashire, Manchester, Merseyside, North West

I completed my Master's degree at The University of Manchester in International Business and Commercial Law in 2017. Since graduating, I have been working for Realm and use the knowledge I gained during my law degree to provide expert advice in legal recruitment.

I focus on the recruitment of Family Lawyers, including roles in Childcare Law. The law firms I work with are based across the North West, including Greater Manchester, Merseyside, Cheshire and Lancashire.

Together with our director Duane, I am also the co-host of our family law podcast, Refreshing Chats with Family Lawyers.


How would you describe yourself in 3 words?

Spontaneous, tenacious and expressive.

What’s your favourite thing about working at Realm?

Working at Realm isn’t your standard office job. We’re actively involved in a number of networking events across Manchester and most recently all the girls ran a 10K Pretty Muddy for breast cancer research! It’s great how varied it is, from fancy black-tie events to Crystal Maze, we’ve done it all. Also, flexi-time because I love a lie in!

How do you unwind after a busy day at work?

I’m lucky enough to live in a really scenic part of Castlefield, so going for walks is a great way to spend my evenings, especially in the summer. 


What people say about Paula...

Paula helped me find my latest role and couldn’t have been more helpful, encouraging and practical.

She made what can be a very stressful time really straight-forward and simple. Highly recommend!

Lucy Williams, Solicitor at Vardags

Paula is a rare treasure in the world of specialist recruitment. She knows her market, listens and gets to know both her clients - being the employer and the potential employee. She is professional, personable and hugely successful. No wonder her testimonials are so good.

Elizabeth Hassell, Head of Family at Joliffes Solicitors

I would highly recommend Paula as a legal recruiter. She helped me find the job I had been searching months for as a graduate and made sure my abilities were put across to the employer in the best way to secure me an interview. 

She also made sure I was always kept up to date through communication with the employer.

Natalie Kralski, Family Law Paralegal
