Highly motivated and qualified professionals

I am so glad and thankful to have known Peopleconnexion and the great experience I’ve had with them during the recruitment process. It was my first time going through the recruitment process with Peopleconnexion and so was nervous,however, with exceptional customer service,professional guidance and advise provided by your consultants I worked, it was very rewarding in every stage of the recruitment process. I will take with me the skills and knowledge I have learnt and experienced with Peopleconnexion as a professional in the workforce and personally. The consultant I worked with were Cameron Kiki (Resource Consultant- Peopleconnexion) and Stephen Mead (PNG Country Manager – Peopleconnexion) who are both based in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. They a highly motivated and qualified professionals who have good qualities and good values and were responsive through every stage of the recruitment process and successful completing it. Thank you to the owner and every employee of the Peopleconnexion. May our good Lord continue to richly blessed each and everyone of you and your families, now and in the days to come.

Outstandingly professional

Well, i’ve heard about Peopleconnexion in the past but never engaged with them until recently. My experience working with Stephen Mead particularly in recruitment has been tremendous. Steve is always available, if he doesnt pickup the call, he will certainly return your call and that’s what i mean by responsive. Outstandingly professional. The quality of candidate applications received are of high standard. We hope to continue a mutual beneficial working relationship with Steve and the team.



Professional and responsive at all times

Dealt with Stephen Mead when exploring opportunities to work in Papua New Guinea. I found Stephen and Peopleconnexion to be professional and responsive at all times. Compared to other similar companies I have worked with I felt that my skills and experiences were considered and kept in mind. I didn’t progress with an initial role I enquired about but Stephen kept me in mind for other similar roles and contacted me when a potential fit became available. I was ultimately successful. Stephen is a credit to Peopleconnexion and also a representative of PNG!
