Double MIMA Nomination for Realm Recruit

Posted on 4/12/2017 by Katherine Memery

We are delighted to announce that two members of the Realm team have been shortlisted at next year’s prestigious Made in Manchester Awards. Our director, Duane Cormell has been nominated in the competitive Entrepreneur of the Year category, while legal recruitment consultant Joe Shenton is a finalist in the category of Talent and Recruitment Professional of the Year.

The MIMAs are held each year by future pro-manchester to celebrate the talent and success of the city’s most promising individuals. Professionals will be honoured from a host of different industries, including Digital, Banking, Finance and the Legal Sector.

The winners will be crowned at a glamorous ceremony on 1st February, which will once again be held at the Hilton Hotel on Deansgate. Between now and then, Joe, Duane and the other finalists will undergo a rigorous interview process to help the judges make their final decision.

Duane’s nomination is testament to his hard work and dedication to Realm over the last 2 years. Since launching at the end of 2015, we have experienced early growth and built a loyal and fast-expanding client base; none of which would have happened without Duane’s driven and focused direction.

Joe, on the other hand, has been shortlisted as a result of his transparent and personable approach to legal recruitment. Since joining Realm less than 18-months ago, Joe has gained the respect of both lawyers and law firms and emerged as one of our most successful legal recruiters.   

Both nominations round off a terrific year for the business. Not only has turnover doubled over the last 12 months, but we have taken on 4 new members of staff to help us continue to provide our clients and candidates with an exceptional service.

Going into 2018, we plan to continue to expand and further consolidate our position as one of Manchester’s leading legal recruitment consultancies. Hopefully, the outcome at the Made in Manchester Awards will signal the beginning of another fantastic year for Realm!
