So you want to know more?
That’s a good start.

What's the programme?

One of the top interview questions we hear when hiring internally is about our Learning and Development, what training we offer and what’s the progression like.

So we thought we’d show you what everyone gets when they join Niyaa People.

We have a dedicated Talent Manager, Gary Marshall whose role is to ensure the smooth on-boarding of your career at Niyaa People and teach you the practical stepping stones in your role as a Recruitment Consultant.

Too many companies allocate this role to a “Billing Manager”, but Learning and Development is the cornerstone of our company’s success, which is why we’ve got someone in the company dedicated to ensuring your future success.

"With their training given to all levels of their business, I personally believe this is one of the most robust training programmes I have seen and matches the investment more Corporate recruitment companies delivers to their recruiters (and in some instance I would say it is better!)”
