Tucker joined the Imperial Chemical Industry (ICI) industrial relations team in 1936. In 1946 he moved to British Petroleum (BP) and travelled extensively for the company on labour relations and staffing issues in the Middle and Far East. He then returned to the head office where he was manager of industrial relations until his retirement.

For a long time he was associated with Toynbee Hall where he lived in the early 1950s. At the end of the 1950s he met Tony Dyson and they lived togother for 35 years until Cliff Tucker's death.

Cliff Tucker was involved with local government and was elected successively as a Labour Party representative to the councils of Stepney, St Pancras and Camden. However he came to think that the Labour Party had lost its way and became more-or-less apolitical. He was also a Justice of the Peace (JP) and from 1978 to 1981 he was deputy chair of the Inner London Magistrates Committee.
