Client Testimonials

Clive Ormerod - Chief Executive Officer, Les Mills International image

"I have worked with a lot of executive search teams both internationally and in NZ, and Tribe stand out. They are redefining what the new breed of executive search is. Their ability to think differently, reach into community groups that others don’t, means that the candidates they find are unique. We worked with them recently on our Global CPO and Global CFO positions, and they did not disappoint. They will push you, challenge you, and are invested in making sure you get the best”.

Rob Bullock - CFO, Quotable Value  image

"I have worked with Estee from Tribe for a number of years sourcing candidates in mid and senior finance roles.  Estee has a high level of integrity as a recruiter and always takes time to fully brief herself on roles being recruited.  Estee is incredibly efficient and detailed, putting forward only those candidates who closely match our requirements."

Ian Grose - Chief Financial Officer, NZ Bus image

"From day one Jackie was extremely professional and she understood the importance of scoping the exact requirements for different members of the new finance team. From there I left the hard work to Jackie to find suitable candidates. Three or more candidates were presented and each candidate had the appropriate skills which made the recruitment process easier because my main job was to find the candidate with the best cultural fit for the business. Tribe then took over reference and compliance checks and secured my new team in the space of three weeks. 

It is nice to find a recruitment firm that delivers on its promises. Well done Tribe."

Ian Grose - Chief Financial Officer, NZ Bus
