The company also announced it has appointed William Oram as country manager to oversee and help the PNG team meet the increased demand for experienced staff in the country's energy, construction, infrastructure and mining sectors.

"NES Global Talent has an outstanding reputation with a strong leadership team and major clients," he said.

"I am very excited about the opportunity to lead the growth of the business in PNG, expand our reach, enhance existing client relationships and build new ones.

"Oil and gas, infrastructure and, to a lesser extent, mining are the main sectors of opportunity.

"From a recruitment point of view, candidates with developed skills in technical trades, procurement and management are in high demand."

Infrastructure is the latest major growth sector for the country, with the PNG government citing it as one of its main policy goals as the PNG LNG project moves into the operations and maintenance phase.

Oram said that it was important to develop local knowledge and understand the unique need of PNG clients.

"The ability to meet clients and candidates face-to-face is essential," he said.

"From a client viewpoint it is important we fully understand their business, allowing us to work in partnership with them, adding value through sourcing and supplying the most relevant candidates projects."

Australasian divisional director Gareth Broadrick said: "William's appointment to the PNG office is a demonstration of our commitment to expanding in the region."

"William will help us tap into new areas of opportunity in PNG and beyond. His experience and expertise will further strengthen the team and establish a solid base for future growth.

"Alongside this, our Brisbane office has continued to perform strongly over the last 12 months, requiring us to relocate to larger, more modern premises. This will provide a strong springboard for future growth."
