Hiring for a large pharmaceutical complex in Sweden

Case Study


In 2015, approximately $285 million was invested into a new, high-tech facility at one of the largest production sites for medicine in the world, designed to manufacture new biological medicines.


In the early stages of the project, our client utilised numerous employment agencies to supply contractor personnel. However, very few of these suppliers had a robust understanding of Swedish labour laws or in-country tax compliance, which naturally presented additional issues, including high levels of contractor attrition and a shortage of qualified personnel to fill the project's niche, in-demand skill sets. 

Airswift Solution

Airswift presented a clear, compliant solution which leveraged our trusted partnerships to enable compliant and efficient payrolling services in Sweden. This allowed our client to easily track the cost of each hire against their respective budget, knowing their workforce was operating within Swedish law. 

Airswift also provided Talent Mapping through our robust network and rate benchmarking in order to evaluate where niche talent was located and at what cost.


  • 27 hires were made across both businesses
  • Bulk of hires supported the critical Commissioning, Qualification and Validation phases
  • Airswift was selected to support the entire pharmaceutical portfolio in Europe for our client
