Recruitment Consultant

Are you an experienced recruiter 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)?

This is an exciting opportunity to join Realm Recruit, a boutique legal recruitment consultancy with a refreshing approach. You will be joining at an incredibly exciting time, given we are entering our next phase of growth.

You’ll have the chance to take advantage of our comprehensive training programme, further develop your skills (and earning potential) and build something of your own, as you’ll work towards becoming the go-to person in your area of specialism using our tried and tested approach to doing so.

You’ll also be able to fit your work around your other commitments as a result of our high trust, high choice working structures, which include the opportunity to work 80% of your week from home if you wish, and Flexi-Friday, our version of the four-day week.

We’ve also just opened a brand-new HQ in the centre of Altrincham – a lively and pretty town with some very famous hospitality brands and market food court – so you’ll have a fantastic working environment with lots of social activities to take part in on the days you are in the office.

What’s more, with a large and skilled support team in place, you won’t have to format any of your own CVs or write any of your own job adverts. In fact, half of all candidates reaching interview stage in Q3 this year were generated by our in-house support team. All these aspects of your role are taken care of, leaving you to do what you do best – matching the right lawyers with the right law firms.

In addition to these fantastic benefits, we also offer quarterly bonuses and incentives, a transparent progression route for all employees and a health cash plan with upgraded benefits (including private medical insurance and life insurance) along the way, and up to 30 days annual leave (excluding Bank Holidays and Christmas shutdown), rising with years of service.

We’re looking for someone who’s dynamic, collaborative and – above all – human to join our close-knit team of award-winning recruiters and support team members.

Indeed, our unique way of doing things has attracted a lot of attention in recent years and we’ve been shortlisted for (and often won!) regional and national awards, including the Recruiter Awards and Investing in Talent Awards. We’ve also regularly featured in national media, such as The Times and Law Gazette.

The role would suit an experienced recruiter – 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 at Realm Recruit   100% of team members are proud to work for Realm (based on an employee engagement survey conducted in November 2022)

“Amazing team culture and supportive working environment.”

“I’m a big fan of the flexible working arrangement we have at Realm. It makes a refreshing change!”

“I work with an amazing group of people who are all really good at what they do.”

“Leadership’s genuine interest in every member of the team’s progression and the amount of flexibility we have.”

“Everything is clearly mapped out for each team member to follow and what their next steps are to work towards.”

“I really appreciate that salary reviews are ongoing and don’t only come with a formal promotion. It’s nice to feel that your efforts are being recognised even when you haven’t quite made it to the next stage in the progression policy.”

“When I discuss benefits with friends in other companies, they are always very surprised at the amazing benefits we have.”

“I have never been involved in a business that is so open with everyone.”

“The attitude to training and development here is amazing.”

“This business is so progressive when it comes to work/life balance.”
