What our Childcare candidates and clients say...

"I was impressed with Paula's proactiveness and response in finding suitable candidates, particularly compared to other agencies. I would highly recommend her!"

Anthony Jones, Head of Childcare and Family at O’Donnell’s Solicitors


"Paula has been a pleasure to work with; from her initial contact with me, through to my first day in my new post, she has been nothing but supportive and helpful. I would highly recommend Paula."

Hannah Kinder, Childcare Solicitor at Bromleys Solicitors


"Duane and Paula at Realm have been enormously helpful and effective in assisting us with recruitment. They have listened carefully to our brief; where appropriate, have suggested alternative solutions; have managed our expectations realistically; and have been very focussed in their selection of the candidates they have offered us for consideration. 

They have clearly briefed the candidates well about us; have followed up interviews promptly, and have been our best advocates to the applicants. The effect of all this is that we have a high success rate for recruitment, so far a high retention rate, and it is an effective and therefore commercial use of our time. 

Overall, Realm provide an excellent, focussed service."
