about us

Our happy clients

I've found Tamba and his team to be tremendous at helping me with hiring at SSW. I've received help in all-day workshops and we've improved our ATS systems, our data insights and we've had some great hires. Tamba was so awesome we've used his professional services for our Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane offices. I'd recommend Lucida to anyone looking for a real value add, in any recruitment/talent area.


Adam Cogan, Chief Architect & Microsoft Regional Director

Tamba is a seasoned Principal in the domain of technical talent search, and has supplied me with outstanding candidates over a period of decades and placing staff into three different corporations. Given his considerable experience and network, he is able to tap into a spectrum of technical domains and span of seniority. In my current role, Tamba supplied two outstanding technicians with PhD's who are driving corporate innovation and regarded as the best talent in our growing organisation. I recommend Tamba and Lucida's services without reservation.

Rubicon Water

Dr Jason Grant, General Manager - Software & IT

Tamba 'turned around' our entire recruitment approach, dramatically improving not just our reach to great new candidates but helping us build a public face to what it means to work at MedAdvisor. I couldn't recommend him more highly for anything related to talent acquisition, from a single role to totally reshaping the hiring and recruitment approach of a company.


Josh Swinnerton, Founder & Chief Product Officer

Tamba worked extremely hard to find quality candidates to fill several roles. Tamba is consistently looking at ways to improve the entire process to maximise the efficiency of our recruitment. I would not hesitate to recommend Tamba to anyone looking for a engaging, intelligent recruiter

National Australia Bank

Daniel Fullarton, Manager Engineer

As a candidate, it was a pleasure being placed by Tamba. At the outset, he sought to understand my specific interests and skills and presented a very good match on paper. Overall, he is very relatable, has a deep understanding of the Melbourne job market, and knows how and when to provide the right guidance and advice.


Oliver Mannion, Principal Engineer

I have worked with Tamba to secure a suitable role and soon after for filling staffing needs. He has an engaging personal style, does regular follow up, clarifies requirements and provides sound advice. I've no hesitation in recommending Tamba to assist you with finding or filling a role.

Civica Care

Evan Vicary, Product Solutions Manager

Tamba took the time to understand the brief, set up a clear plan and managed expectations about the approach and process. Investing in the right approach has given my business the long term benefits of finding the best available candidate to fit our team and culture and not a body placement for the sake of a FTE fill. All placements are still happily with the business and continue to be valuable contributors.

Dynamiq a CGU Company

Jarrod Wilson, CEO

For over a decade I’ve engaged Tamba and his team to help us hire IT contractors and permanent resource across multiple disciplines in the PMO as well as Australian Government Security cleared IT experts. They are responsive, effective and deliver strategic talent management support that provides a long term sustainable workforce outlook. I couldn't recommend them highly enough.
