Client Testimonials

Josie Lambert – FOOD NATION, Co-founder image

“Tribe Team and Yannie our Consultant in Supply Chain & Operations listened to our requirements, helped shape our thinking on what we needed, and then found the perfect team member to join us. We were an emerging start-up looking for our first team member to join the business and had no job description to start with. Tribe helped to mould the role around top talent in the market, searched locally and internationally to ensure they could meet the broad skillset and expertise we were after. I wouldn’t hesitate to use the Tribe Team again.”

"Having worked with Dan for over 7 years, I have found him to be one of the most agile Supply Chain and Procurement recruitment specialists I’ve dealt with. His attention to detail, ability to identify the right fit – almost with a sixth sense - and his knowledge of the wider industry ensures the best candidate selections are brought forward – a vital service component when time is precious and talent is hard to find. I highly recommend Dan as the solutions provider of choice to fill those challenging Supply Chain and procurement roles."

"We approached Tribe needing help with an unconventional and hybrid role within our business. The role involved Demand Planning and Financial Analyst work. Yannie listened to our needs, she knew the landscape of Supply Chain careers and talent out in the market and was quick to present several candidates. Her and Jackie in the Finance team at Tribe worked together to ensure they uncovered all options. We were able to hire a great candidate within a week’s time of working with Yannie, on what was a challenging role! Not only did our hire have the right technical background, but most importantly they fitted in well with our team - and they have proved to be a great fit with our culture. I would highly recommend Yannie for any supply chain recruitment needs and sourcing great Demand Planners."
