Talent Acquisition for Rail Construction in Singapore

Case Study


Our client is a leading international construction company delivering a portfolio of high-profile infrastructure projects throughout Asia. The company has been awarded a contract to construct the Sungei Road Station in Singapore on the downtown line, which runs from the north west to the east of the island. The line boasts 13 interchanges with other lines and will be the longest automated underground train line in Singapore. It will be completed in 2017.


Many of our client's assignments were short-term, sometimes only for a few days, and they were faced with a shortage of local talent due to the number of projects. The company also needed to identify who were approved by the Land Transport Authority (LTA) of Singapore.

Airswift Solution

Airswift built a database of local candidates and enabled a turnaround of 12 hours for most positions. All proposed candidates were asked for recommendations to ensure their competencies.


Airswift regularly asked contractors for candidate referrals and developed close relationships with contractors through regular site visits and external events.
