Our Ambassadors / Duane Cormell

Duane is Director of Realm Recruitment.

Born in Birmingham, Duane is now an adopted Manc after moving here at 19 to study Law at the University of Manchester.

Duane says: “In my mind I was always going to return to Birmingham after I graduated, but after moving here I quickly realised that leaving wouldn’t be that easy. 8 years on, not only is my career firmly fixed in Manchester, but most of my friends live here too including some I persuaded to move here from Birmingham!”

Duane went straight into legal recruitment after graduating, spending 5 years with a national recruitment agency before setting up his own business with a friend in 2015.

Of Forever Manchester Duane says: “The work Forever Manchester does with mental health groups really interests me and I’d really like to get involved in this in whatever way possible. If through my business I can raise awareness of the ways Forever Manchester helps young people and provide opportunities myself, I’d be delighted. Beyond that, I’m prepared to get my hands dirty and do what I can.”

Duane’s favourite things about Manchester are the music, the architecture, the pubs and the people he’s met and continues to meet.
