What makes Realm different

1. We’ve got an exciting future ahead of us!          

Since launching less than three years ago, we’ve experienced solid growth, built a loyal client base and firmly established ourselves within a competitive and crowded market.

Turnover and profit have increased year on year, we’ve won two prominent regional business awards and have been shortlisted for many more. We’re excited for what the future holds for Team Realm and have ambitious expansion plans in the pipeline.

2. We’re a great team

We’re a lovely, down-to-earth bunch, committed to being the best at what we do. Amongst other things, we dress down on a Friday, have regular team socials and hold our annual award ceremony, the ‘Realmies’ where we recognise the achievements of each member of the team over the previous 12 months.

3. We'll invest in you 

At Realm, we invest heavily in our people’s development and are partnered with an industry-leading recruitment coach who helps our team meet their goals. Each team member also has their own ongoing progression plan and regular reviews with our director to ensure they’re on the right track.

What’s more, we’re members of several professional networking groups including pro-manchester and TEAM that offer a range of events and development opportunities.

4. Ambition and direction

We know where we’re going, we understand why we’re trying to get there, and we know how we’re going to do it. We truly believe in our values and live and breathe them every day.

We want people to join our team who share our values and truly believe that our refreshing approach is the way forward.

5. An impressive client portfolio

Over the last three years, we’ve worked hard to position ourselves as a key player within the regional legal recruitment sector. We’ve quickly built a loyal client base of revered legal practices across Manchester, Yorkshire and the Midlands.

6. We offer a competitive package

As well as paying competitive salaries, we have a lucrative, uncapped commission scheme, which pays out monthly and quarterly.

We also offer a number of other exciting benefits including a generous holiday allowance, incentivised extra annual leave, dress down Friday, regular team socials and incentivised team outings.

7. We’re flexible

We foster a working environment to help our staff reach their full potential. This involves us being mindful of our Consultants’ commitments away from the office. Everyone works flexi-time, as we want every member of the team to have a life outside of work and appreciate that no two people’s schedules are the same.

We’re also open to considering part-time and home-working, which some existing team members already make use of.

8. We have a refreshing approach

We pride ourselves on our refreshing approach to legal recruitment and provide a highly personal and tailored recruitment service to both lawyers and law firms.

We recognise the importance of building lasting relationships and work closely with private practices across the North West, Yorkshire and the Midlands, supplying them with talented lawyers at all levels to help their businesses thrive.
