Be a Trainee Recruitment Consultant

Learn all you need to know about Recruitment as part of a vibrant team who like to have fun, almost as much as they like to succeed. 

How and Why You Should Apply


Trainee Recruitment Consultant Birmingham

  • £18,00 – £22,000 starting salary
  • Outstanding commission scheme
  • A company mobile phone
  • Private BUPA healthcare
  • A lifestyle benefits package
  • £4,000 pay rise within your first year 

What you will be doing

As a trainee, you’ll join a structured 12 week in house training programme which is unique to Niyaa People. It’s designed to help you implement the key skills and competencies needed to become a world class Recruitment professional.

After this initial training, we'll support you to put all you have learnt into practice, so that you continue to gain the expertise and confidence needed to take on a fully-fledged Recruitment Consultant within 9 months.

Once you have achieved this promotion, you will receive a £4,000 pay rise and your commission scheme will double. However, our investment in you doesn't end here; you'll continue to be empowered to become the best professional you could possibly be.

  • You will support the team to find the right candidates for roles, while developing your own skills and expertise
  • You will combine content rich workshops with an ongoing development plan whilst putting what you have learnt into practice day to day
  • You will attend client meetings alongside Senior Consultants during your first three months. This will help build your confidence and give you a better insight to what a proactive meeting consists of.

What you will have

We're a vibrant office, made up of a lot of different personalities, and we want to see you being yourself first and foremost. Everyone within our offices is proof of home grown talent which has been achieved from our bespoke training and development courses.

All of our backgrounds are different (we have an ex-PGA Golfer, semi-pro Footballer and an ex Fireman) so we don't mind too much about what you were previously employed as or the degree that you may have.

However, we would like to see evidence of the following:

  • You are a self-motivated and attentive individual
  • You are driven, with fire in your belly and the ambition to take your career forward
  • You are well presented - you will be meeting with both clients and candidates which we work with
  • You are a good listener and articulate in your approach both face-face and over the phone
  • You are able to spot opportunities
  • You are determined to succeed, professionally and financially

Where you will be


Onwards to our company and culture…

We are Niyaa People

The young and dynamic team on a mission to become THE Recruitment agency of choice throughout the West Midlands. 

Our Culture


Our Culture - What we do

We are a young, ambitious and continually expanding consultancy, on a mission to become the Recruitment Consultancy of choice within the Midlands Region. We aim to deliver an unrivalled world class experience to candidates and clients in our chosen specialisms: Architecture, Building Services and Facilities Management; Public Sector; Construction, Office Support and Property Consultancy.

Our drive to be the 'go to' company in the city has seen us go from strength to strength in recent years. It has allowed us to invest heavily in our infrastructure, training programme and website, and we have even moved into a newly refurbished city-centre office, offering fantastic views overlooking the city centre.

We take pride in the fun and vibrant environment that we have created here at Niyaa People. We are a random bunch of individuals - our team is made up of everyone from a former firefighter to a make-up artist - but we all come together to do great things and people genuinely love coming into work every day.

Our great team spirit means there's always lots going on socially and professionally. Whether it's going for a drink after work on a Friday, helping our clients with charitable events or our Christmas parties (yes, we have two of these) we are always looking for an excuse to get together and have a good time.

We also offer incredible incentives and rewards to say thank you for a job well done, from cash prizes to trips to Las Vegas. Our Christmas parties are legendary and our Annual Conference, where we take the whole company away for a few days of business and pleasure, is always great fun too.

Training & Progression


It's a very systematic, 12-week training programme. It's full on but you will learn everything that you need to know about Recruitment.

We've had targets for trips to Centre Parcs, London, Barcelona and, most recently, a trip to Las Vegas. 

Incentives & Benefits


Our Graduates - Who we are

Kate's Graduate Story


We've got a special group of people here, who genuinely are friends and get on... There's so much outside of work that we like to do together as a team. 

Kate's graduate story

  • Studied Fashion Communication at Birmingham City University 

  • After university, worked in Fashion Retail for a while, working her way up to management level. However, wasn't sure that it suited her

  • Had friends working in Recruitment and decided that it may be a good fit for her too

  • Joined Niyaa People in the summer of 2015 and has since progressed into a Recruitment Consultant role

  • Has enjoyed the support network that is in place to help graduates through the more challenging times

If you're looking for a fast-paced environment, where no two days are the same, and you can have a great time and a great laugh, I'd definitely recommend Recruitment.
