I was only with Airswift for 6 months and I lost count of how many calls I received from them to see how I was going. I was lucky to get a call from other recruiters. My new job will be direct but I would definitely use Airswift again in the future.
All the people I was in contact with were outstanding, friendly and always helpful, I made my life a lot easier. I would most definitely want to work with Airswift in the future. Cheers.
Airswift was very helpful and communications were always prompt, I could not find any fault with the Airswift operation.
