Employers: Why Realm?

At Realm, we’re truly passionate about working with firms that want to take a more progressive approach to attraction and retention. We endeavour to develop long-term, mutually-beneficial relationships with the law firms we work with, placing our core values at the heart of our approach.

We work hard to provide a tailored legal recruitment service, bespoke to the needs of you and your business.

We’re consultative

We work very closely with our clients to ensure we thoroughly understand their corporate culture and kind of people they’re looking for.

From the outset, we’ll make sure that we get to know you and your business properly. Our consultative approach means that we will supply you with lawyers who are not only talented but who are closely aligned with the ethos of your business.

What’s more, by working hard to understand your firm’s plans in terms of both scale and direction, we can not only tend to your immediate needs but also accurately anticipate your future requirements. 

We’re niche

At Realm, our consultants are ultra-specialist in their approach. Because they work in particular practice areas and in specific geographical regions, they understand the market well and have established talent pools from which to supply you with high calibre personnel.

We're also specialists in undertaking strategic search & selection and featured employer campaigns. Whether you’re looking to recruit a talented Family Solicitor or grow your Private Client team, when you work with Realm you’ll work with a legal recruitment consultant who specialises in your niche area of the market. Their focus, extensive portfolio of lawyers and expert market knowledge mean that they are perfectly placed to react to and meet your individual needs.

We’re human

Ultimately, we, like you, are real people. When we team up with you, our consultative approach and, consequently, the access we ask for from you allows us to form a lasting, mutually-beneficial relationship with you and your business.

Because we’ll connect with you on a deeper level, we’ll be able to recognise when someone is and, crucially, isn’t the right person for your firm.

Our expert consultants will then be perfectly placed to source and supply you with the talent that will help meet your commercial goals, both in the short- and long-term.

We’re dynamic

We see ourselves as more than simply legal recruiters; by acting as an extension of your in-house recruitment team, we want to help you achieve your businesses objectives.

We’ll do this by not only recruiting for specific legal roles, but by acting as brand ambassadors for your firm and keeping you informed of the very best talent on the market.

We’re candid

When we work with you, we’ll be open with you from the start and won’t be afraid to say the difficult things. We’ll always keep the bigger picture in mind and give you frank and honest advice about what’s in the best interests of you and your firm.

Importantly, we’re equally open with our candidates. You’ll never receive an individual’s CV without them giving us their express consent first and we don’t have terms around unduly long periods of candidate ownership.

In terms of fees, compared with other recruiters that employ a sliding scale fee structure, we offer our clients a greater deal of certainty. When you work with Realm, you simply pay a percentage rate in accordance with the service you choose.

"I have worked with Joseph at Realm Recruit since joining Kindertons in October 2016 and found him to be consultative with an accurate perception regarding the calibre of candidates required in various teams at Jigsaw Law and the expertise I need them to possess.

Joseph is always honest with the candidate and market information that he passes onto us and this allows us to make informed decisions. He is pleasant and easy to do business with. Joseph and Realm are our first port of call when a new need arises." 

– Melanie Meakin, Recruitment Manager, Jigsaw Law Ltd

"Kelly has worked with me on a number of assignments at both Paralegal and Solicitor level. She is a pleasure to deal with. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her if you are looking to recruit within the legal field."

– Sophie Reaney, HR Adviser, Jackson Lees

"Paula was fantastic – she clearly had top candidates in mind when we first met but she took the time to listen to our needs, ethos and plans before suggesting anyone to meet. The first candidate we met was the one who eventually joined us so her instinct was right.
Paula communicated throughout the process and followed up in a personable way; ensuring both us and the candidate had settled in well. 
I would certainly recommend Paula for any future recruitment needs." 


– Chris Longbottom, Partner/ Head of Family Law in Manchester, Clarke Willmott

"Kelly's help was invaluable in expanding my team. She was accommodating and incredibly helpful. I am very happy to recommend her."

– Michele Wightman, Partner, hlw Keeble Hawson Solicitors

"We began working with Joseph and Realm in August 2016 and have received an excellent service from him at all times as well as an excellent calibre of candidate. Joe always seeks to find the perfect candidates to fit the roles; within the last 12 months, he has found 8 candidates for the firm.

Joe is extremely professional at all times and grasps our needs very quickly. He communicates with us and the candidate throughout the recruitment process and is always willing to go the extra mile to see the deal completed."

– Nicola Harrison, Practice Manager, Amanda Cunliffe Solicitors Ltd
