Client testimonial

Through 2020/2021 the branch had significant resource challenges which required immediate contract workers on both voids and repairs. Myself and the team at Fortem have worked closely with Niyaa people to help maintain and bolster resource levels.

Working with Niyaa has been a smooth process to date, with Sean and his team managing to source some quality tradesmen which have in turn become full time employed operatives.

General Manager, Fortem

Kane is the glue that keeps me with Niyaa People. He takes an interest in me, seeing me as a person rather than a commodity.

I have had contracts with other agencies but Kane by far always gives me the best help and support through the term of the job, sorting out any issues I have with speed and outcomes in my favour.

Stock Condition Surveyor, Black Country Housing

I personally have utilised the Niyaa recruitment facility for many years. They have supported me with securing candidates for a number of my previous company’s and indeed here at Midwest Electrical. During the process they were professional and efficient with ensuring that the requirement for our business was fulfilled.

The speed of service and quality of candidate has been very good, saving myself and the team here time in finding applicants and going through the initial vetting procedure.

Director, Midwest Electrical Services

Kane takes the time to understand you as a person and your career aspirations, he gives you time and matches you to roles that he feels are suitable. Moving forward I would work with Kane again and would trust him to support me when I am recruiting for roles. He really does offer a personal touch which you rarely see now with recruiters. I think Niyaa have so much to offer Organisations in terms of recruitment and I only see then going from strength to strength.

Asset Manager, Black Country Housing

I was really pleased with the service Carla and Niyaa People provided. Carla listened to our requirements and provided excellent candidates within hours of being given the role. Carla has a friendly and flexible approach to her work and I would recommend her and the team to any organisation looking for a recruitment partner. I also found the fees to be competitive.

Head of People, Wolverhampton Homes

Sam did an excellent job sourcing candidates for the role we needed to fill. He worked quickly and efficiently to fill the posts at very short notice and communicated well with both the candidates and us as the client. The quality of candidates he sourced was high and met our brief very well, meaning that time was not wasted on candidates that didn’t meet the spec. Overall extremely happy with the service provided and Sam is a professional and capable recruitment consultant.

Service Delivery Manager, Stonewater

Kane helped me through a tough time when I was out of work, after 2 meetings with Kane I found he understood what role I was looking for and within a week I was placed into my current role which I have now been made permanent. I also found if I had any issues Kane had a resolution to them within the day and which made my life easier. I also found him very professional and knowledgeable in his field.

Project Manager, Solihull Community Housing

The whole process with Niyaa People, from start to finish was so professional and easy. My account manager provided impeccable support throughout all stages of the project, and nothing was too much trouble. He only ever provided quality candidates, who’s values and personalities aligned with our own.

Niyaa People will spend the time to get to know your business, and really will recruit with your company culture in mind.’
