“Sandy has provided a wide range of HR services including, executive recruitment, preparing job specifications, making structural recommendations, providing training advice and facilitating outplacement programs to a number of my businesses. My association with him has been over an 18 year period. He has always been a source of sound and challenging advice. He studies his subject with diligence and passion resulting in being a true professional in his industry. Sandy has always been willing to go that extra mile and provide services well beyond that required. This latter attribute places him in a class of his own within the recruitment industry. Sandy is fearless in his pursuit to provide the best possible candidate fit and will not hesitate to try to influence the beliefs of his clients in the interest of getting the best result for all stakeholders. Sandy is a first class operator.”
Cornerstones to Sandy’s successful approach are his ability to listen, absorb and contribute to the specific needs of any assignment he undertakes. We have found him to be quite unique in being able to encapsulate the culture of our company, only presenting worthwhile candidates and being honest enough to tell us if reference checks do not agree with the initial assessment of preferred candidates.
Of particular value is his dedication to following up those people he has placed in alerting me of any irregularities that need attention. This has won him the respect of all he has placed and contributed significantly to cementing the team environment that the company enjoys.
In essence Sandy became one of my company’s Consultant Personnel Manager and has continued to be a reliable resource for on-going personnel issues as they arise.
I can therefore confidently recommend Sandy and TQM Recruitment Services to whomever seeks a reliable and professional executive employment service.

Sandy Lamb has had an association with Brady since the early 1990’s, when he recruited a General Manager for our Australian business.
Over subsequent years Sandy has recruited many staff for Brady including a Financial Controller, a Warehouse & Distribution Manager, a Management Accountant, Area Managers in NSW, Victoria, Queensland and New Zealand, a Catalogue Production Manager, a Call Centre Manager and specialists to set up an Automatic Identification & Data Collection Unit. It goes without saying, he won the confidence of not only the senior management team in Australia but also became well known and respected by the Executive body in the Global Head Office in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA.
Sandy has developed a strong understanding of the vision and culture of our business and has been successful in identifying candidates who will thrive in our environment and will add value to us. Some of the very senior appointments he made for us have been instrumental in our five fold growth over the last 8 years, and have proved to be invaluable team members with long term commitment and passion.
Sandy’s personal approach and follow up have served him well as a business partner and have contributed to his success.
I can recommend Sandy Lamb with confidence as a professional recruitment executive.

Just a short note to express my appreciation for the work that you have completed for me in regard to the appointment of a Regional Manager for NSW & QLD.. Although we appointed Joe some twelve (12) months ago, the fact that you conducted a follow up interview recently to ascertain his level of satisfaction with his role within 3M is a testimony to your discipline in fully completing the assignment. This also speaks volumes for your meticulous attention to detail and preparation, which from my point of view is second to none.
I recall vividly, being exposed to your investigative questioning about the role for some 2 – 3 hours so that you fully understood the calibre of candidate that would fill the role to our satisfaction.
Your knowledge and experience in the area of sales personnel is your great strength from our perspective and this was clearly demonstrated by your meticulous and very structured approach to candidate interview and selection. All of the candidates that you presented to us were of a very high calibre.
We also appreciated your communication skills during the selection process as you called after each interview and passed our impressions onto the candidates and vice versa so that both candidate and client (3M) were left in no doubt as to the current position.
Having now used your services in my capacity at Protector Safety Supplies and now 3M I would say without hesitation that you provide a service which has no peer in recruitment services.
Thank you once again for completing our assignments in a very professional and timely manner.
