“"At Brabners we’ve worked with Realm for a number of years now and it's been a positive experience. It's a good relationship and we enjoy dealing with the Realm team. They’re our kind of people and are good to deal with. But beyond that, they get what we're about and they understand what sets us apart as a firm and what we looking for. When it comes to the candidates the Realm team put forward, it's about quality, not quantity - we don't get bombarded with unsuitable CVs. It’s not just a tick box exercise based on experience, their consultants work to understand the candidate and whether they'd be a good fit for us and that we'd be a good fit for them."”
“I truly cannot thank Paula enough for her help, guidance and support throughout my search. As a newly qualified solicitor, I lacked confidence in knowing my worth and going after what I deserved. That’s where Paula took the reigns! Paula spoke to me like a friend, offered a listening ear to fully understand the brief and gave tailored advice, resulting in me accepting a job at a firm I have wanted to work for for years. Thank you once again, Paula. ”

“I first spoke to Joseph a few years ago when I was considering a change of job. Joseph was friendly, approachable and really supportive of any choices I made. Unfortunately, COVID hit and job security became more important to me. Joseph was completely respectful, understanding and supportive which I was not expecting of a “typical” recruiter. It’s at this moment I know Joseph was genuinely caring for me as opposed to trying to force jobs. He became a friend. I contacted Joseph at the beginning of this year and within 4 days I not only had spoken to Joseph about my hard limits of what role and firm I wanted, but he also recommended some great firms and secured me 3 interviews! It is all because of Joseph I found my perfect firm, everything I wished for and more. He listened and knew it would be a great match. I would highly recommend Joseph to anyone. He is friendly, professional, knowledgeable and approachable, and I am very grateful to him for assisting me in securing a great job. Joseph - you’re amazing. Never change! Thank you again for everything!”
