"I cannot recommend Joseph highly enough in regards to legal recruitment. His role was fundamental in me securing my current role, which is going incredibly well. Throughout the recruitment process, he kept me updated whilst also offering advice and support."

"Paula has been such a help during the transition into my new role. She always listens to what you need and makes sure everything is covered.

She has been such a friend during a stressful time in my career and I'm over the moon in my new position! Nothing is ever too much trouble for Paula! I'm hugely thankful to her and I would encourage anyone looking for a new chapter to have Paula alongside you all the way!"

– Emma Davies, Family Solicitor, Hall Smith Whittingham LLP

"I can't thank Kelly enough for all her help and support in getting me my new role. I was at somewhat of a crossroads and looking to make a bit of a non-conventional move by swapping specialisms which is difficult enough on its own never mind during a global pandemic.

Kelly really took the time to find out what I wanted from my next role and helped find firms which matched that. She knows the private client industry exceptionally well and truly is excellent at her job. she was prompt with her feedback and so helpful during the entire process from CV to interview and negotiation of terms.

I wouldn't hesitate in recommending her to any firms or solicitors looking for their next employee or next role. Thanks again Kelly!"

– Jade Atkinson, Solicitor, Veta Law

"I cannot praise Kelly highly enough, she was extremely proactive and helpful in my search for a new role. Kelly was approachable and professional and is a real asset to Realm Recruit."

"Duane and his colleagues at Realm Recruit stood out against other recruiters from the very start, it was clear they had actually considered my experience and skills rather than taking a generic approach. Throughout, my aspirations were central.

Duane regularly kept me updated & when he said he would do something, he did. He was proactive in finding the right job for me. From pre-interview to my start date, Duane kept in touch, offered support and advice and did all he could to ensure a smooth transition.

Not only would I recommend Duane to others, but I already have!"

– Lynne Barlow, Family Solicitor, McGuinness Legal
