Client Testimonials


After our return to the office post COVID-19 lockdown we had a few staff members we needed to recruit – and FAST.  I put the emphasis on fast as it was so key to the success of the roles that we were hiring.

We felt so lucky to have the support of Lidya and Georgia on the three hires that we needed.  They were super responsive, submitted amazing candidates, and all in record time!  They made the recruitment process so easy for us – ensuring they only submitted the right candidates for our business, who were in our budget and who could work within our timeframes.  We ended up hiring three superb employees and I’m so thankful that we had the Tribe team to help us as we couldn’t have done it without them.

What I loved the most was how fast the team were to respond and how well they “got” what type of person we needed.  Even the reference checks were submitted in record time. 

Brooke Riley - Head of HR, Trilogy

Mercury Building

"I have worked with Lidya for the last 4+ years through different companies. Professional, approachable and adaptable l find Lidya a dynamic and focused individual who goes the extra mile to present high caliber candidates. Lidya takes the time to understand and analyse the business and the role, by gaining a deep and tangible understanding of the cultural pieces that make my team(s) thrive. The attention to detail and prompt follow-through is second to none.

Her unique ability to tailor the process for my teams and organisation requirements is what sets Lidya apart from the rest."

Brenda Edwards - Credit and Collections Manager, Mercury

Lotto NZ

"Lidya has always kept in contact and across the way my team, our business and how our performance is going. She sincerely engages to understand my team, our role and the changes we have within the business.

Recently, I approached Lidya with an immediate need of getting some talented people for my team, for a sudden increase of calls into our Helpdesk. Because of the way Lidya works, she already knew the fit and environment and delivered immediately. I had an energetic group of people to have in the team and the process was made as effortless as possible.

Overall, I enjoy working with Lidya and I appreciate her genuine approach to working with people. She is personable, professional and is great at what she does."

Victor Hukui - Customer Service Manager, Lotto NZ

"Lidya is great to work with. Other than through referrals, our Customer Experience team have come through Tribe mainly because there's a lot of trust that the brief will be met. Tribe understands our company vision and culture, and doing business with like-minded companies is really important to us. 

Thanks again to Lidya and her support team for everything they do. Lidya has been brilliant with helping my new managers with the interview process and helped with those impacted by the restructure. Can't speak highly enough of her."

"Georgia made the process easy with us never having used a temp agency before. Georgia went through clearly how it all worked and we felt really confident in Tribe's ability to find us a good temp. Jay, our Temp, was fantastic. He really wanted to make sure he performed well and the team really liked his presence in the office. Thanks all!"

Kim Milne - Operations Manager, 212F
