Sector: Property Professionals

The Challenge

Niyaa People is one the leading recruiters who specialise in dealing with Architectural, Building Services, Building Surveying, Construction, Facilities Management, Social Housing, Public Sector Property Maintenance and Interim Management professionals. Based in Birmingham, the business was set up in 2008 with a clear focus on doing recruitment the right way,  delivering a customer orientated, friendly and consultative recruitment service.

Looking to take the business to the next level and to ramp up the profitable growth while maintaining its reputation for excellence, Managing Director Dalvinder Shoker joined The Recruitment Network to help him and the team shape the journey and deliver it.

The Solution

Stage 1, having reviewed the business, involved developing a comprehensive 3 year business plan, a vision of success and building a roadmap to deliver it. Success focused on delivering profitable growth tripling the size of the business.

Dal’s involvement with The Recruitment Network provided access to ideas and approaches from peers in the industry, world class speakers and successful recruitment entrepreneurs.  Membership also provided Dal’s team, both billing managers and consultants, with a suite of developmental Masterclasses to equip key players within the business with the confidence and ability to step as influencers and leader within the business, driving performance.

The Outcome

With a renewed focus and clear objectives,  margins have increased and the business has been successful at building the strength and depth of relationships with the right clients, transforming itself from a contingent recruiter to a consultative partner, helping clients save money, providing them with insights and expertise to grow their own businesses. In the 12 months since joining The Recruitment Network, headcount has grown from 17 to 25 and net fee income is forecast to increase by a 20-25% in the next 12 months

What they said…


We’re a cleverer business now. I’ve been involved  in a number of clubs like this over the years, but The Recruitment Network makes you want to get up at 5 in the morning and I get excited about what we can do with this business. It’s a brilliant club to be part of
