During those early years, the training focused on Pitman's UK methods of secretarial skills. As time went on the personal computers became available in the offices, NADIA incorporated computer courses into their training programs.

Gradually people began calling NADIA to refer the trainees to them for the job placements. That's how NADIA got into the recruitment business.

The recruitment division also handles Business Consultancy, Marketing Research and Salary and Compensation Surveys. NADIA is accredited by the Federation of Recruitment and Employment Surveys (FRES) UK and confirms with the international standards of recruitment and employment.
