Testimonials

I have always found Airswift to be very responsive, helpful and knowledgeable. We have used Airswift specifically to facilitate contractor needs in countries where we have not had an entity or where we have had a need for specific contractor assistance that Airswift can provide.
Airswift is one of the most reliable contingent labor providers that we work with. Their team has consistently provided highly skilled clean energy talent to job sites in every imaginable location. The Airswift staff has consistently responded to our requests, and the level of professional services has set the standard by which we now measure other renewable energy recruitment companies.
We knew that we could rely on Airswift and that they do their best to get the job done. Great knowledge about the alternative energy market and details of the positions that we were going to hire. Airswift are not pushy and aggressive like other agencies. They provide good and professional service at fair and reasonable prices while accommodating customer’s needs and expectations.
The Airswift team has been instrumental in key steps of several of our green energy projects. The whole team offers both quantitative and qualitative support with high sense of service, even with tight deadlines.
