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.

Airswift in action: Partnerships with renewables companies

We have worked with some of the most reputable renewable energy businesses in the world to help them find the talent they need to drive innovation and growth.

Here are some of the projects we've been involved with:

Offshore wind turbine_Netherlands

ODE

In 2018, ODE was commissioned to provide engineering services for the East Anglia ONE project - a 102 turbine-strong offshore wind farm rated at seven megawatts each.

Airswift worked with ODE to provide clean energy talent acquisition services. This included contract recruitment for onshore HV cabling, onshore substation, project management teams and archaeological positions.

We also helped source talent for land owner and third-party crossings, project services, document control and contract management.

SBM Offshore

SBM's inaugural offshore wind project represented a significant milestone for the company, and it was one of the few floating wind projects that were currently under construction. 

Airswift were able to offer our expertise in contract recruitment to assist SBM in sourcing a team of highly skilled QA/QC Inspectors who would be stationed at the fabrication site in Fos sur Mer, located in the southern region of France.

These positions were critical for SBM, as the project was considered a flagship initiative, and there had been delays that had placed significant pressure on the company to deliver on its commitments.

We were able to respond quickly and efficiently by securing the services of five contractors in France and an additional ten contractors in China to support SBM in meeting its project deadlines.

Boskalis

Boskalis is a renowned offshore multidisciplinary project specialist that required experienced staff in engineering and project management to deliver large-scale offshore wind projects across Europe.

As Boskalis' renewable energy recruitment agency, Airswift helped to deliver top renewable energy professionals for various roles, including project management, project engineering, offshore construction, and management.

Vestas

As a result of successfully supporting various Vestas projects worldwide, Airswift was selected as their primary partner for turnkey workforce solutions throughout the duration of the Turitea wind farm project in New Zealand.

Throughout this period, Airswift utilised its talent acquisition services to help Vestas fill various specialised roles within offshore wind.
