On Wednesday 27th July, Manchester Young Solicitors (MYSG) hosted their summer social at King Street Townhouse. The event, held in conjunction with the Manchester Young Chartered Accountancy Group (MYCAG) and the Manchester Young Professionals Network (MYPN), was proudly sponsored by legal recruitment consultancy Realm Recruit and RBS Young Bankers.
The evening was enjoyed by 200 of Manchester’s brightest young professionals on the 6th floor Rooftop Terrace of the city’s hottest new venue, King Street Townhouse. Guests enjoyed a BBQ and drinks while they mingled and enjoyed panoramic views of the city centre. Later, a charity raffle raised over £300 for Forever Manchester, with prizes including vouchers for Harvey Nichols and Selfridges. Musical entertainment was provided by internationally renowned saxophonist Tom Da Lips whose soulful sounds complemented the Townhouse’s impressive architectural backdrop.
Manchester Young Solicitors Group brings together solicitors with up to 10 years’ post-qualified experience from across Greater Manchester. As well as offering opportunities for networking and personal development, the group hosts social events where their members can network and relax with their peers. At this year’s summer BBQ, the solicitors were also able to socialise with individuals from other sectors, including members of MYCAG and MYPN.
For sponsors Realm Recruit, the event demonstrated the significant progress the firm has made since launching at the end 2015. In less than 12 months, Realm has experienced accelerated growth in the fiercely competitive market of legal recruitment. Its sponsorship of MYSG’s flagship event demonstrates the way in which it has firmly established itself as a permanent fixture within Manchester’s business community.
At the end of the evening, our Director Duane explained the importance of their sponsorship:
“While Realm has worked with members of Manchester Young Solicitors Group in the past, we hope that our sponsoring of their flagship summer event signals the beginning of a more long-term, professional relationship with the group. Also, as an ambassador of Forever Manchester, I’m thrilled that the proceeds of tonight’s raffle will be going to such a worthwhile cause.”
The social was a roaring success with festivities continuing into the early hours. With three of Manchester’s prominent professional networking groups hosting the event and two exciting companies as sponsors, the social was a true celebration of the city’s brightest young professionals.
