The Realm Team Grows By Two

Posted on 13/2/2017 by Katherine Memery

It’s been an exciting couple of weeks at Realm HQ as we have welcomed two new members to the team. Kelly Reid has joined as a senior consultant and Rebecca Hopwood will be working as a business administrator.

Kelly will be bringing a decade of legal recruitment experience to her new role. She has an in-depth knowledge of working in the regional recruitment market, having previously worked for seven years at a Manchester-based legal recruitment agency.

Rebecca has recently relocated to Manchester from North Yorkshire where she worked for a corporate gifts company. She has a Level 3 Diploma in Business Administration and will provide much-needed administration support to the team.

Since launching in 2015, Realm has gone from strength to strength and established itself as a key player in Manchester’s legal recruitment market. The two new appointments come on the back of a solid first full year of business and two Made in Manchester Award nominations for our director, Duane Cormell.

Duane spoke about the new appointments:

“Working closely with a finite number of valued clients is at the core of our business proposition and recruiting internally enhances our ability to do just that. I’m thrilled to welcome Kelly and Rebecca to Realm and am excited to see what we can achieve as a company over the next 12 months.”
