Case study

After Realm were recommended to Bromleys’ managing partner, Mark Hirst, our director Duane visited Mark at their offices. During their meeting, Duane got a better feel for the firm, their culture and company benefits and discussed how we could best convey their strengths as an employer to potential employees.

Bromleys were looking to grow their established childcare team but because of the incredibly tight nature of the childcare market in the North West, were struggling to find suitable candidates. We recommended they take a different approach and suggested a search and selection campaign, despite this being not being a method recruiters would usually use to find candidates within this market.

Within the space of a couple of months, our family recruitment specialist Paula had found Bromleys two talented childcare solicitors who are specialists in their niche.

"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." 

Mark Hirst, managing partner at Bromleys
