Does signing up guarantee me a job offer?

While Niya's Social Mobility platform provides you with the best place to connect with organisations looking to hire diverse, underrepresented tech talent, we can't guarantee employment. We can guarantee access to best-in-class learning & development resources, events & workshops, and a community of likeminded individuals from within Niya's community.

Why should I create a profile?

Niya's talent platform provides you with a live, up-to-date profile advertised directly to employers actively looking to hire diverse and underrepresented digital talent. You will become a member of our growing collective from underrepresented communities around the world while also gaining access to exciting workshops, on-going business training and employer networking events. ALL FREE OF CHARGE!

How do I engage with employers?

Your skillset will be matched to employers who are looking for your profile. You can apply for the open roles posted by employers through Niya's Job Board, and the employers will contact you via Niya's Talent Platform afterwards. No more applying to opportunities and not hearing back from the hiring manager!

How long will it take for my profile to be approved?

We aim to verify and approve your profile within 48 business hours.

What are the requirements for having my profile approved?

In order to create a Niya profile, we ask that you self-identify as a member of an underrepresented community. We work with individuals who have been displaced (refugees, asylum seekers, stateless individuals and internally displaced individuals), ethnic minorities, LGBTQ+, women in tech, physically and cognitively displaced people. Should you wish to connect to employment opportunities through Niya's platform we also ask that you have the right to work in the country you are located in and have an upper intermediate level of English.

What are the benefits of registering with Niya?

Alongside advertising your profile to exciting start ups and established corporates, you will benefit from becoming a member of our growing collective of talent from underrepresented communities around the world. You will have access to exciting workshops, ongoing business training and employer networking events.

How does the Refer a Friend scheme work?

If you refer a friend to Niya and they secure a role through Niya's talent platform, you will receive a £250 referral bonus. There is no limit to the number of referrals you can provide and your friend should simply mention your name when they sign up.
