Michael is a fully qualified Electrician and before moving to a career in recruitment at Niyaa people he worked on commercial building sites for 9 years.
After thinking about a career change to work indoors, Michael joined us to recruit for Trades & Labour professionals across the East Midlands specialising in Social Housing. His own personal knowledge and expertise in the field has been invaluable when building relationships and representing his customers.
Michael now specialises in Facilities Management recruitment working with Engineers for Facilities Maintenance.
What’s your time been like at Niyaa People so far?
“I have spent 2 years at Niyaa people, in that time I have hit targets, been a part of incentive and been flown out to Dubai. Needless to say, it’s a slight change to being a self-employed electrician on a construction site in Birmingham.”
What do you like about your desk?
“Going out to meet clients and candidates where I get to meet people face to face, it’s one of the major positives to recruiting locally and helps build better relationships.”
What advice would you give to someone coming into recruitment?
“It’s hard work and can be stressful but at the end of it all the financial and job satisfaction is very rewarding.”
