At Airswift, we strive to build a sense of purpose and achievement among all our people in the work we do. In return, we expect you to make the most of opportunities, to be passionate about your work and to respect others.
Whether it is on a team basis or individually, we have built a culture that recognises and rewards excellence. In addition to attractive commission and bonus schemes, we run quarterly awards programs as well as an annual high achievers event, which was in Miami in 2016 and Italy in 2017.
We offer a diverse and challenging environment where you may be working with any one of our 50+ global offices daily. With three headquarters in Houston, Manchester and Singapore driving significant opportunities for international travel including overseas assignments on either a temporary or permanent basis, we pride ourselves as a truly global workplace.
In addition to external development opportunities, we have recently implemented a new learning management system which presents a variety of learning templates and programs to support staff development. We view people as individuals, each with their own unique professional aspirations and learning style. That’s why in addition to global standard online training, we foster a culture rich with opportunities for development enabling our staff to build a long-term fulfilling career with us.
Around the world, we work with many charities to partake in good cause programs. We launched the 1st virtual Global Relay for Life event so all our offices could raise funds and get active. We split into teams by region and raised over $43,000 USD to support nine American Cancer Society partner agencies and collectively walked 3,241 miles.
In 2016, we raised $23,797 USD for Cancer Research UK and Kenya Cancer Association, a huge effort from Team Europe & Africa in London, Manchester, Paris, Norway, Angola and Ghana.
When I pause to look back on where my journey with Airswift started and where I am today, it is a testament to the company, the way that it actively promotes from within and primarily focuses on developing its own staff. My background was in sales and client management (Real Estate & Financial Services) which led me to Kazakhstan, where in 2010 I joined Airswift in an entry level Business Development position. It quickly became clear to me that the work we do is not only immensely interesting, varied and rewarding, but it also has a very real impact on the many people that we deal with throughout the world. From helping our candidates secure often life-changing positions to contributing to our clients successfully delivering their projects, the work we do makes a positive difference every single day.
Through hard work and the support of my various managers, my journey has continued through several positions, Global Account Manager / Country Manager / Delivery Manager, and my current role as a Country Director. Airswift has also allowed me to combine career progression with my passion for travel, with assignments in The Netherlands, the UK and my current location in the UAE. Many of my peers and colleagues have taken similar journeys, and from a personal development aspect, Airswift provides a great platform for anyone that wants to succeed and determine their own path. The very real policy of promoting from within and giving people the time and support to flourish makes it a company that I am still very passionate about being a part of.
I joined Airsiwft in 2000 and have been fortunate to truly experience the company’s global reach. I started as a Logistics Co-ordinator in Kazakhstan before progressing to the role of Operations Manager and moving to the UK in 2002.
My role within the organisation changed dramatically over the next 8 years whilst working in London, eventually becoming Group Management Accountant. In 2010, I moved to Perth, Australia to help the company in implementing new systems and processes before moving to Singapore to further my department’s growing needs.
In January 2016, I was promoted to Finance Director for Asia Pacific, my current position within Airswift. I currently live in Singapore with my husband, 16 month old daughter and a Shih Tzu. I am extremely proud that I have built my career, with help from my peers and managers, from the bottom up. The knowledge I gained helps me a lot in my current role and it also shows that hard work does pay off.
The opportunities offered are not exclusive to me. They are available to all employees who are willing to go the extra mile for Airswift and a tribute to the management in their approach to promoting from within.
I landed in Asia 10 years ago for an academic exchange and never left the region! I’ve now been with the business since 2012. I started as a Country Manager for Singapore looking after a portfolio of drilling contractor clients. I’m now a Director of 5 of our entities across South East Asia, one of the fastest growing regions in the world.
I spend most of my time between our offices in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta and Bangkok, building a strong team of customer-focus individuals and pitching our suite of solutions to existing clients and new prospects.
Airswift has given me the opportunity to deal with the biggest names in heavy industries and be exposed to the largest and most challenging projects ever built; I even got the chance to visit some of them!
I have also been able to travel the world to meet clients, train with peers and even just as a reward for performance.
Director Learning & Development
“If it is to be, it’s up to me.” This is the quote that I heard from my dad my entire life from. I was the typical young Texas girl whose father told her she could do anything she wanted to do, as long as she put the work behind it.
I started my journey with Airswift selling Direct Hire solutions in Houston. Coming from a real estate background, I quickly found the synergy from selling someone the largest purchase they would make in their life time, to helping someone find happiness and success in their career; their livelihood.
I fell in love with the fascinating intricacies of recruitment and understanding exactly what a client needs to build up their strongest asset; their people. From supplying companies with workforce solutions that improve their performance and position, to helping a single candidate secure a job that enables them to provide for their family, being in the business of people is an incredibly rewarding career.
I’m thankful to have served in a variety of roles, from recruiting to sales, to leadership in North America to my current role in Global Learning and Development. If you would have told me that I would be in training 8 years ago, I probably would have laughed. I’m grateful to Airswift for embracing innovation, promoting women in the workforce, and listening to their people. I couldn’t be happier to work for Airswift and look forward to our future together!
I began my career with Airswift in 2002 as a graduate trainee recruitment consultant within our Manchester office in the UK. I quickly realised that due to the level of training, the mentorship I received from management and the team ethos along with the professionalism of the company, Airswift was the organisation to be a part of and to grow with. Throughout the following years, I progressed to becoming a Senior Recruitment Consultant and then a Lead Recruitment Consultant resulting in an opportunity to transfer to our Calgary office in Canada as the Recruitment Manager in 2010.
Being part of the Airswift family for 15 years, I am extremely proud of the success we have achieved and to be part of a global industry leading organisation. I have been lucky enough to meet and to work alongside some of the most professional, dedicated and inspiring leaders and fellow team members.
The thing I love best about working at Airswift is the team. We have the best people in the industry working for Airswift, and we’re all passionate and dedicated in each of our roles. I’m so happy to work with those who share my values, attitude, passion and goals.
Every person that I’ve worked with is unique and valuable. “Believe and achieve” approach – This is what we all have in common. I see Airswift as the land of opportunities. My career path was not straight, but I always went up. I am very thankful for the opportunities and trust given me by my managers and the whole company, and I couldn’t recommend Airswift highly enough.
