We’re excited to reveal that we have taken on two new recruitment consultants and promoted three members of our existing team as Realm broadens its service offering for lawyers and law firms.
Layla Jackson has joined us as a Senior Consultant, bringing with her three decades of legal recruitment experience. Her joining signals our expansion into non-contentious commercial law recruitment; Layla will specialise the recruitment of corporate, commercial, employment and real estate lawyers.
Amanda Bower has also joined the team as a Senior Consultant and, in response to the buoyancy of the North West family law recruitment market, will specialise in the recruitment of family and care lawyers across Greater Manchester and East Cheshire. Amanda has worked in legal recruitment for several years after spending five years working within the law.
We’ve also made a series of promotions within our specialist team. Bill Szajna-Hopgood has been promoted to Associate Consultant, Lucy Wickham has been promoted to Principal Consultant and Chloe Whittaker has progressed to Office Manager.
Our Managing Director Duane Cormell said:
“I’m delighted to welcome Layla and Amanda to the business. Their arrival at Realm will enable us to further increase the breadth and depth of our market coverage, helping law firms attract and recruit and retain the best lawyers in a highly competitive talent market, as we continue to bolster our reputation as the go-to specialist legal recruitment consultancy in the North West.
Paula Pawlowska, Associate Director and Head of the Recruitment division comments:
“It’s fantastic to see Bill, Chloe and Lucy achieve their recent promotions. All three have made a considerable contribution to the business during their time with us and I’m thrilled this has been recognised – I’m looking forward to seeing how their careers continue to develop with us in the years to come.”
