About Us

With nationwide coverage, People Central works across New Zealand to provide employers with the support needed to create successful workplaces.

We enable employers to recruit talented people, develop staff to reach their full potential and in turn enable teams to work together effectively.

What Can People Central Do For You?

We deliver staff recruitment, selection, assessment and development solutions that range from simply adding a psychometric test to an interview, to managing large scale team assessment projects and every step in between.

Because we’re not tied to one supplier or publisher, we can offer you the assurance that the advice we provide is based on the best solution for you rather than the closest fit from just one provider’s toolkit.

People Central delivers results for a diverse range of clients including large corporates within agribusiness, the finance, retail and primary industry sectors, law firms, real estate, tourism, recruitment agencies, management consultancies, not for profit organisations and public sector bodies.

The People Central Team

The People Central team consists of the original founder & Director Steve Evans, Director Katie Durbin, Testing & Assessment Consultant Melissa Pasterz and a nation-wide team of associate consultants - all qualified, experienced people management professionals specialising in testing and assessment in recruitment, career development and team development settings.

Whilst the vast majority of testing and assessment is conducted online, our national network of associate consultants covering most large population centres in New Zealand remains valuable for clients running nationwide recruitment campaigns, appointments into territories away from clients Head Offices, or recruiting staff groups unfamiliar with testing and assessment where the personal touch compliments their ‘employer of choice’ brand.

We also have associates across the UK, EU, Australia, USA & Asia to support offshore recruitment. With the growth of online testing requiring robust IT and occasional support, the team is completed by professional suppliers who provide responsive technical support to candidates and clients when required.
