Realm Celebrate the Best Mancunian Young Talent at the MYTAs

Posted on 24/11/2017 by Katherine Memery

Yesterday evening, the Realm Recruit team attended the Manchester Young Talent Awards, JCI Manchester’s annual celebration of the city’s most promising young professionals.

This year, the glittering ceremony was held at the grand Principal Hotel in Manchester city centre and were hosted by Key 103 presenter Mike Toolan. Outstanding individuals were honoured from a range of different sectors, including the law, property, finance, marketing and the media.

We were thrilled to be there to support our director, Duane Cormell, who was shortlisted in the category of Talent and Recruiter of the Year. This was the second year in a row that Duane had been nominated, as a result of his dedication, extensive market knowledge and excellent reputation amongst both law firms and lawyers.

In the end, we were disappointed to find out that Duane had narrowly missed out on his award, with the honour instead going to Craig Heywood. Duane was, however, highly commended in the category, testament to all of his hard work this year.

We all had a fantastic evening, with the party carrying on late into the early hours! Thank you to the JCI team for throwing such a fabulous event; we’re already looking forward to next year!
