Our Pledge To Jobseekers

At Realm, we believe in treating lawyers like people, not candidates.


When we commit to working with you, we will: 

Provide our service free-of-charge 

We will never charge any fees or costs for our services.  

Be committed to inclusion, equality and diversity  

We’re a Disability Confident Committed employer and will always uphold our inclusion, equality and diversity statement.

Treat you with respect 

We will be polite and courteous in our dealings with you. 

Be honest and candid 

We will be truthful and frank in our dealings with you. 

Be responsive and keep you informed 

We will never ignore you or take an unduly long amount of time to respond to your queries; in fact, we’ll make sure we keep you well updated, even if there’s little more to update you on than that ‘there’s no news yet’. 

Offer advice  

We will use our expertise to guide you through the recruitment process, provide insight into market conditions, and do our utmost to steer you through the inevitably difficult parts of moving job. 

Be compliant with GDPR 

We will only retain your personal data if there’s a legal basis for us to do so. Your data will be stored securely in our Candidate Portal, which puts the power in your hands to easily manage your details. We will never send your CV or personal data to any of our clients without your express consent to do so. 

Prepare you for interview 

We’ll assist you in preparing for interviews by providing you with a copy of our interview guide, which covers the fundamentals of interviewing. We will also coach you to make sure you’re as well prepared as you can be and provide you with helpful information specific to the firm or the individuals who interview you.  

Support you through the resignation process 

Handing in your notice is one of the most difficult and obstacle-ridden parts of moving job; we will offer you advice and support to get through this stage. 

Address complaints diligently 

We will take complaints seriously by investigating them thoroughly and acting swiftly. 

Be committed to excellence 

We’re signatories to TEAM’s Charter of Recruitment Excellence.  


"Duane was fantastic at helping me find the perfect new job. He was always available to speak to, responded promptly to any queries and was able to provide great advice to prepare me for my interview.

I would definitely recommend contacting Duane if you are looking for a new role within the legal sector."

– Kathryn Wilson, Paralegal, Maguire Family Law

"I approached Paula at Realm Recruit purely on a speculative basis to see whether there were any opportunities available. Little did I know that I was immediately in safe hands.

Paula addressed my employment needs with the utmost of understanding and professionalism and in record time she had placed me with a firm I could not be happier with. Thank you Paula, 5* doesn’t seem enough."

– Angela Hughes, Family Solicitor, Sinclair Law

"Joseph's care and attention in dealing with my job search really made the difference in securing me the perfect role. He always made himself available to answer any queries I had and spent time helping me to prepare for both of my interviews. I don't think I would have been as successful if I hadn't had someone as dedicated on my side! He also called to wish me luck on my first day which was really thoughtful service. 

I would definitely recommend Joseph to anyone looking for a new legal role and I'm very grateful to him for all of his work."

– Ashley Porter, Commercial Insurance Solicitor, Knights plc

"Paula was very professional and understanding. I am very grateful to her for placing me in a suitable role very quickly and efficiently.

Thanks again, Paula."

– Maureen Judge, Family Law Executive, Harold Stock & Co

"Paula was a great help in securing my current role. Within the space of days, she had arranged two interviews and confirmed a start date for me. Would happily recommend her to anyone looking for help finding a new career in family law."

– Robert Webster, Solicitor, Maguire Family Law
