How would you describe yourself in 3 words?
Outgoing, positive and driven.
What’s been your proudest moment at Realm so far?
My role is all about supporting other team members to reach their potential and driving the growth of the business. That’s why I couldn’t have been prouder when the Marketing team hit target last year. It was a proper team effort and so rewarding to see those I manage feel proud of their achievements too.
Tell us about something you do day-to-day that helps match the right lawyers with the right law firms.
It’s not just about putting out a job advert or making a few calls and seeing what comes back – especially in today’s legal talent market, where our primary research shows that less than 15% of the market are actively seeking a new position and legal vacancies have increased by 25% in 12 months.
Unlike most other legal recruitment firms, we provide valuable services for lawyers who are not looking to move firms, such as help with skill development and career planning. This means we have a much better, longer-term view of what a lawyer is ultimately looking to achieve and we can provide them with the right opportunities at – most crucially – the right time.
It’s my job to ensure we’re adding value to our relationship with lawyers via our services and media.
How do you unwind after a busy day at work?
Spending time with my little boy before he goes to bed – I can’t wait to pick him up at the end of my working day and give him a big squeeze! Once he’s asleep, you’ll probably find me trying to get through the ever-growing stack of books next to my bed!
