Meet the Team: Rebecca Hopwood

Posted on 6/9/2017 by Katherine Memery

In September’s edition of Meet the Team, we caught up with a crucial cog in the Realm machine, administrator Rebecca Hopwood. Rebecca told us all about her summer, her recent move to Manchester and her role at Realm.

How was your summer?

It was great although we didn’t get much of a summer here; luckily I went to Tenerife with my flatmate so I managed to see a bit of sun. We went dolphin watching on a speedboat, to a waterpark and drank cocktails (not at the same time). I hope to squeeze another holiday in before the end of the year.

Describe a typical day in your role at Realm.

A big part of my day is spent typing up and formatting candidates' CVs for our recruiters to send out. I also help with sourcing candidates, answering the phone, managing some of our job board accounts and helping the team with any admin tasks that are required which varies from day to day.

You’ve recently relocated to Manchester – what’s your favourite thing to do in the city?

I really enjoy going out for food. My friends and I have a never-ending list of places we want to try. The great thing about Manchester is there are so many different choices of great places to eat. I also enjoy nights out here, I recently went to Junk Yard Golf which combined crazy golf and a bar which was fun.

Do you prefer a night in or a night out?

A bit of both! Through the week I like a night in with a crime documentary or a boxset but you will find me either in town or on Burton Road come the weekend.

Which boxset are you currently bingeing?                

I started watching Power a couple of weeks ago, but I’m already on the last series which I’m a bit gutted about. I am excited about the new series of Doctor Foster starting next week though!

What's the one thing you couldn't live without?

My mum ...but if you mean an object then probably my phone. Now I live far from home I’m always on my phone talking to my friends and family, it’s also handy for taking photos.

Who would be at your dream dinner party?

Denzel Washington (my favourite actor), Kevin Hart (I think he’s hilarious), Barack Obama (I saw him on Bear Grylls’ show and he is always so cool and collected) and Kim Kardashian (don’t judge me on this one, I would just like some make-up tips).
