Are you a recruiter with at least two years’ experience looking for the ability to earn life-changing money and improve your career prospects, all while benefitting from unrivalled flexibility and a four-day week (where you get paid for five)?

We are Realm. A specialist legal recruitment consultancy known for our refreshing approach to all we do and driven by the aim of becoming THE best company to work for. We’re regional and national award-winners – including the Recruiter Awards and Investing in Talent Awards –and true industry influencers, regularly featured in national media, such as The Times.

How much will I earn?
We operate a market-leading commission scheme that will allow you to earn up to 40% of all your billings. You’ll be supported to become a true specialist in your field and exponentially increase your earning potential over time.

Not only do we offer very favourable percentages, but it’s easier to earn commission here because of our large and highly skilled marketing and support teams.

If you are someone who detests the admin side of the job, you’ll love us – because not only will we format CVs for you and handle all your job adverts and postings, but we’ll also run candidate generation campaigns to add to your funnel (half of all candidates reaching interview stage are typically generated by our marketing team) and provide support with building client relationships.

What else is on offer?

  • The flexibility to fit your work around your other commitments; this includes the opportunity to work up to 80% of your week from home if you wish, and Flexi-Friday, our version of the four-day week.
  • A comprehensive training programme that will further develop your skills (and earning potential) and a proven strategy that will help you build something of your own, as you’ll work towards becoming the go-to person in your area of specialism.
  • A transparent progression framework
  • Ad hoc competitions and social incentive days
  • A health cash plan with upgraded benefits (including private medical insurance and life insurance) along the way
  • Up to 30 days annual leave (excluding Bank Holidays and Christmas shutdown), rising with years of service.
  • Modern HQ in the centre of Altrincham – a lively and pretty town with some very famous hospitality brands and market food court

Who are we looking for?

  • You will have a growth mindset, be a team player, and be truly down-to-earth – you’ll then slot nicely into our close-knit team of award-winning recruiters and support team members.
  • Experience of working in a 360-recruitment role
  • Varied candidate resourcing skills (e.g. internal database, job boards, LinkedIn)
  • A self-starter, just as comfortable and productive working remotely as you are in the office
  • You’ll be resilient to the highs and lows of recruitment, recognising that it won’t be easy every single day

This role will especially suit you if you are a recruiter with a track record of success – not necessarily in the legal sector – who wants to earn more money, in an environment free of arbitrary KPIs, spend less time in the office, and more time with family or friends (or just have a bit more time for you!), and work for a business with a strong sense of purpose and social impact.

What our team says about working with us:
100% of team members are proud to work for Realm (based on an employee engagement survey conducted in November 2023)

  • “Leadership’s genuine interest in every member of the team’s progression and the amount of flexibility we have.”
  • “Realm is a progressive and dynamic organisation that is going to go far and I am proud to be part of this”
  • “This business is so progressive when it comes to work/life balance.”
  • “the training at Realm is amazing and nothing like I’ve ever received before”
  • “I’m a big fan of the flexible working arrangement we have.”
  • “Everything is clearly mapped out for each team member to follow and what their next steps are to work towards.”
  • “Amazing team culture and supportive working environment.”
  • “I have never been involved in a business that is so open with everyone.”

We are also recruiting for a senior recruitment consultant with 3+ years’ experience and a business support consultant with 2+ years’ experience. Get in touch with our Head of People Rebecca Hopwood on to learn more.
