Industry Insight: 

For all of our jobseekers and law firms we like to go above and beyond and whether you’re a Family Paralegal, Family panel Solicitor or a specialist Family law firm we aim to give you the best service possible. We see ourselves as more than simply legal recruiters; we’re legal recruitment consultants. 

We aim to pair the right talent with the right law firm but further than that we work hard to equip those we service with the right knowledge to help them achieve their commercial goals. That’s why, each year, we carry out in-depth research to better understand the state of the market so that we can effectively advise the lawyers and law firms we work with. 

Our 2021 market research revealed that almost half of lawyers don’t believe they are paid fairly. However, because firms are willing to pay to secure the right people, it’s never been a more important time to understand current market rates and whether you’re being paid enough.  

We have thoroughly researched the market and compiled a breakdown of salary by PQE level to help you understand exactly where you sit compared to other Family lawyers.

Lucy Wickham

Meet Our Specialist Family Recruiter – Lucy Wickham 

I originally started my recruitment journey in in-house recruitment.  

I joined Realm in 2019 as a Junior Consultant and in early 2021, I was promoted to Associate Consultant. Since then, I have focused exclusively on the recruitment of family and childcare lawyers in Yorkshire.

She was very dedicated, proactive and kept me informed during the whole process. I could not recommend Lucy enough to anyone who considers a change in their career." 

Katarzyna Zatorski, Head of Family at Truth Legal

 

"Each time we have provided Lucy with a candidate brief, we have been provided with high-level consultancy support. Lucy is very diligent and detail focused on the requirements of our candidate brief - and critically - delivers results.

It is refreshing to work with a "commercially aware" recruitment consultant - who truly understands our business. We look forward to Lucy assisting our business with our growth road plan."
