Research & Knowledge

  Research and technology play a critical role in Tribe’s “leave no stone unturned” candidate sourcing methodology.
Our Head of Knowledge & Research, Chelsi Clifton, has over 15 years recruitment industry and senior search experience across various international markets. 
  Strong research capability will increase market coverage and reduce time to hire 

Our Knowledge & Research Team work alongside our consulting teams to add value by creating channels to the passive candidate market.  Research also complements the engaging and compelling content our Digital Marketer creates for our clients across their roles, projects or employment brands. The Research team will often also attend client briefings.

  Accessing offshore talent and returning Kiwis 

Research not only plays a key role in accessing passive talent but also in managing a pipeline of offshore talent – either Kiwis looking to return home or talent looking to make New Zealand home. This spans all skill sets and gives valuable visibility to offshore candidate markets for the opportunities we have here in New Zealand.
  Pro-active mapping 

In addition to job specific candidate sourcing, our Research Team proactively map talent scarce areas and highlight talent to our clients, based on future needs they have identified. They also keep the business abreast of market insights and research our clients and their macro-and micro-environments so your Tribe team can speak with authenticity. 

  Tools, business improvement & technology  

In addition to an extensively developed database, our Research Team take advantage of a number of advanced tools to identify candidates. Tribe’s insights-driven database utilises multiple API’s to continually access the best integration technologies. We also leverage LinkedIn extensively with specialist licences alongside additional research tools.

"Why do I chose to partner with Tribe? I have worked with both Emma and James, two of the chiefs, for 10 years plus and appreciate their genuine focus on partnership and understanding of what good talent looks like. Tribe's brand compliments ours and has cut through, attracting a high calibre of people, not to mention their research function which taps into inactive talent in the market. We have used Tribe and their specialist teams across many disciplines, at all levels, and have been impressed with the calibre of people they have in their teams. I continue to value their honest commercial advice and I know that they work in a true partnership model to help us achieve our business goals."
