Award Nomination and Promotions Round Off an Exciting Month for Realm

Posted on 27/9/2016 by Katherine Memery

It's been an exciting few weeks at Realm, with our director Duane being shortlisted for a prominent business award and the promotion of three key members of staff.

At the end of last week, JCI Manchester announced the shortlists for the 2016 Manchester Young Talent Awards. We were delighted to discover that our director Duane Cormell had been nominated for the award of Talent and Recruiter of the Year. The entire team will be attending the awards ceremony to support Duane, which will be held in November at the Imperial War Museum North.

The nomination rounded off an eventful few weeks, following the promotion of recruiters Chris HeathcoteJoe Shenton and Matt Goddard. All three joined Realm earlier in the year and have quickly demonstrated their hard work and commitment to the firm. They each progressed through the company’s comprehensive training programme in preparation for their new positions. Chris will operate as a Resourcer, while Joseph and Matthew are now Consultants.

The trio’s promotions, along with Duane’s nomination, demonstrate the impressive start Realm Recruit has enjoyed since its launch in November 2015. In less than a year, the firm has gone from strength to strength and has established itself as a pioneer in Manchester’s competitive recruitment sector.

Duane commented on the last few weeks:

“I’m thrilled to be shortlisted for an MYTA and to see our group of recruiters develop so quickly. At Realm, we are dedicated to ensuring that we nurture talent to make sure we have the very best people on board. The fact that Chris, Joe and Matt have achieved their promotions in a relatively short period of time demonstrates their capabilities as recruiters as well as our commitment to investing in the Realm team.”
