Our Story


Durban Labour Consultants is a dynamic and cutting edge labour consultancy targeting local Small & Medium Enterprises and providing them with Human Resources and Industrial Relations services that are not readily available to such businesses.

Established by owner Nikki Auret, Durban Labour Consultants’ mission statement is to make their clients labour issues their own and in doing so, allowing their clients to focus on their core business.

Having graduated from Rand Afrikaans University (RAU) with a Bachelors of Commerce Degree in Industrial Psychology and Human Resource Management , Nikki went onto complete her Honours the following year at the newly formed University of Johannesburg (UJ). Soon after graduating Nikki travelled abroad and applied her trade in the United Kingdom, firstly taking up a position at the London based corporate Transport for London before moving onto BT (British Telecoms).

Upon returning to South Africa, Nikki took up a post at the health care industry giants Netcare, but having experienced both the corporate and service industries, Nikki soon found herself looking for new challenges within the HR (Human Resources) and IR (Industrial Relations) landscape. Thereafter she gained experience within the manufacturing as well as communications agency type environments whilst completing a post graduate diploma in labour law from the University of Johannesburg (UJ).

After achieving this post graduate and with the experience gained from in the various industries, Nikki decided to go it alone and begin a lifelong ambition and dream of owning her own labour consultancy. In doing so Nikki identified the demand for Human Resource and Industrial Relations services within the SME (Small and Medium Enterprises) market place and positioned Durban Labour Consultants to service the labour needs of these local businesses.
