PACIFIC PEOPLE: Local Knowledge. International Reach.

AVI Pacific People is the first Pacific-wide specialised end-to-end recruitment service headquartered in Suva, Fiji. We combine deep local knowledge with or broad international reach ensuring the best candidate pool for clients. We also work with clients across all sectors to review their HR policies and practices, identify gaps and highlight potential issues. Based on our assessments, we then provide our professional advice on practical solutions that will ensure business results are achieved in a sustainable manner.

Established in 2018 as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Australian Volunteers International, AVI Pacific People builds on AVI’s 50 years of recruitment experience in Australia, Federated States of Micronesia, Fiji, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu.

Our human resources and business solutions services include:

Caliper profile assessment

The Caliper Profile is an objective, scientifically validated workplace assessment that accurately measures an individual’s personality, characteristics and motivations in order to predict on-the-job behaviours and potential. Caliper profiling can be used during employee selection, development, promotion, team improvement, and succession planning. This is a new offering from AVI Pacific People.

Talent acquisition

Our recruitment solutions include advertised recruitment, executive and board searches to recruitment process outsourcing. We have the skills, networks, technology, and expertise to deliver high quality support for local, regional, and international talent recruitment at all levels.

Organisational development

We assist clients to improve on the effectiveness and productivity of their people, systems, and processes, to make their workplace more results oriented. Our approach starts with an assessment of your organisation’s needs and recommendation of interventions to improve organisational effectiveness.


Our experienced consultants can work with clients to design and implement highly effective rewards strategies that support business strategy and will help to attract and retain quality talent. We believe in leveraging financial as well as non-financial rewards to engage and motivate your people.

Leadership development

As strong and effective leaders are critical to an organisation’s long-term success, we work with clients to identify potential talent and assist them in developing and implementing strategic initiatives to empower their leaders to lead with confidence.

Outplacement services

We will offer outplacement services to employees who have been laid off to enable them to secure another role faster. Outplacement services can be custom-tailored to suit individual organizations and show the remaining employees that you care; this in turn will boost employee loyalty to the company.

Business advisory support

We provide back-office support for clients in relation to their HR and administrative functions. Furthermore, we offer “hot desks” on short- or long-term hire, and our conference room facility may be hired for meetings and workshops.
