We would like to share some candidate and client testimonials with you..

I am a Registered Nurse with 40+ years experience and first enrolled with Tribe Recruitment Agency In 2012 to supplement my NHS occupational pension. If you are thinking about joining a Nursing Agency I highly recommend Tribe. Although based in Darlington they have many clients throughout the Northern Region.

I live in Middlesbrough and I am happy to travel a bit further afield in the summer months but not so much in the winter! This has never been a problem as Tribe always go the extra mile (pun intended) to accommodate your individual preferences. I can choose to work as many or as few shifts as I want and this flexibility is ideal to achieve a good home-life/work balance.

The team of staff based at the headquarters in Darlington are great, very friendly and supportive and most importantly always contactable! I am always paid on time (weekly) and their pay rates are very favourable.

So if you are looking for a reliable and professional nursing agency why not give Tribe a go. I’m so pleased I choose them and I’m sure you will be too.

Brenda Paterson - Registered Nurse

I can most certainly recommend Tribe. I have always been offered shifts to suit my needs and have never once had a week where I havnt been offered the shifts I have requested. I find the staff in the office very supportive and can always go to them with any concerns. It is a friendly well led team. Very importantly I have been made to feel valued, which is a huge factor for me. I would not hesitate to recommend.

Alison Kelly

I have 2 kids and a single parent and I think that the office staff do an amazing job, they get me shifts even around my not so flexible life. Louise is always checking in and offering me shifts, the Tribe office staff are always making sure your ok and they are always very understanding. Although they are my managers they go the extra mile to make sure that us support staff are ok and happy and they offer extra help and time if we need it.

The staff are fantastic and of a high standard. They are always willing to get stuck in as a member of the team and are proactive, kind and caring. The staff in the office are very helpful. They are organised, can let you know about shift coverage quickly and communicate well with the home, nothing is ever too much trouble. Thank you for making our often hectic rota, so much easier to deal with!!

Nikki Higgins - Care Manager - Hambleton Grange

The office staff are out of this world, always there to help if you need them, willing to listen to you if a problem arises. Shifts are always available if you need hours and since joining Tribe myself I would 100% recommend them.

Jessica Blewitt

Every nurse can have doubts, especially when going to a new place of work but Tribe eases the process by giving me varied shifts options, prompt and simple salary payments and a flexible and very supportive team to back you up and offer advice.

Russell Mills

Tribe recruitment is absolutely fantastic, the office staff really go out of there way to help you out. I’ve worked with them for years starting in the Sunderland office then transferring over to the Darlington office, they are always there with shifts, they are totally understanding when it comes to childcare and personal situations that arise, pay is never wrong and always on time, I have never work for another employer that has been so supportive as tribe recruitment are.

Hayley Armstrong

Having worked with Tribe to help me cover shifts in my previous job role, it was an easy decision to apply to work with them when I needed a change of direction. Having worked for Tribe for the past 10 months, I've found them to be a very friendly, supportive and approachable team who do their utmost best to meet the needs of their staff as well as their client base. I now work as a full-time agency nurse and find that I'm always able to obtain the number of shifts I need, and often more if I'd like them. Overall, Tribe is an excellent company to work with, and for.

Katy Charlton

After having worked for Tribe Recruitment agency for over a year now I have had nothing but good things to say. The first meeting and join up I was worried and unsure what to expect as I had never worked for an agency before and it was all new to me.

Looking back now why I felt nervous I do not know as from the first meeting I was greeted with a huge smile all my questions were answered and I was made to feel part of a team. The staff are exceptional and are only a phone call away to answer any questions you may have their experience and professionalism is second to none, and they always try to accommodate to your needs, especially Louise who is always there when needed to help guide and support you.

Through the help of Tribe Recruitment I have just gone on to gain full-time employment with a job that I enjoy and love and I cannot thank them enough.

Claire Crake

Cleveland Bridge UK Limited took a strategic business decision three years ago to outsource our shopfloor recruitment needs for the business going forward.

We have a policy of exploring all local options as well as national suppliers and found the best match to meet our business needs, was Tribe Recruitment. Over the past three years we have developed a first class working relationship fully utilizing the recruitment skills and personnel management of Tribe.

We have always found the Tribe management team to be of the highest calibre and totally professional it is my belief that this is a result of a proactive owner and senior management who operate at all levels of the business giving support to their staff which has the result of delivering a first class service meeting the needs of their end user customers.

Andrew Smedley – Production and Quality Assurance Manager – Cleveland Bridge UK Ltd

I would like to thank Leandra and Louise for having me as part of Tribe. You have supported me throughout an eventful time in my life when I wasn’t able to do much for you. Can I just say Louise is a star!! Always a friend at the end of the telephone, she is a great asset to your team.

Jan Garton

The pay is good too, highly recommend team to join.

Andrea Moloney

Tribe recruitment have always been reliable and able to provide us with long term cover for both nursing staff and care staff whilst we have been recruiting. They have provided quality staff and have offered consistency to our service by providing us with the same staff members where possible. 99% of the time Tribe have also been able to provide us with the emergency cover that comes with last minute sickness.

Suzanne Mckie, Home Manager, Lansbury Court

After worrying about working for an agency I decided to contact Tribe Recruitment, this was the first agency I contacted and it was great because they really took the time to get to know me and put me forward for a job that suited my skills and personality.

I have been in my current position for almost a year and a half now and this has worked out really well as I am now being taken on as a permanent member of staff, thanks to Tribe Recruitment finding me this position.

Tribe Recruitment are just a phone call away should I have any concerns and they also regularly call me just to catch up and check on how I am getting on, any queries I have had have been dealt with efficiently and quickly.

All staff are friendly and approachable.

Judith Currar, Administration Assistant, Review Unit, Parkside, Melrose Ave, Billingham TS23 2JH

I am a registered manager within a supported living service. I used Tribe agency in 2017 to cover shifts at the service, and I always found them to be very reliable, and the staff to be of a high standard. The agency always supported to provide continuity with the staff they provided.

Helen Davison - Registered manager

I commenced working with Durham County Council through Tribe Recruitment in July 2015. Since that time the assistance, support and help from ALL of the Staff has been second to none, always going the extra mile to deliver. Special praise must go to Luke and Leandra who have been at the end of every e mail/phone call which I can only assume will happen on a daily basis.

I would have no hesitation in recommending the services of Tribe.
