Renewable energy project experience

We have connected talented candidates with some of the most reputable renewable energy projects across the world. These include:


Airswift partnered with DeepOcean to find the best available talent for their part in the NEMO Link project. The interconnector, which connects the UK and Belgium’s electricity systems via subsea cables, provides improved reliability between the two nations when it comes to sharing electricity generated in sustainable ways.

We helped DeepOcean with renewable energy recruitment, providing contract recruitment of offshore reps, HSE workers, and filling cable survey and repair roles.


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

Airswift worked with ODE to provide talent acquisition services, which 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.


Active across the Netherlands and Germany, TenneT provides electricity to approximately 41 million people. In May 2019, the company priced and launched a Green Bond issue of €1.25 billion, with proceeds set to fund large-scale offshore wind projects to support its onshore grid.

Airswift has worked alongside TenneT on various onshore and offshore projects, providing renewable energy recruitment solutions for construction management, HSE, quality, commissioning, offshore substations, HVDC and cabling.


Previously called VBMS, Boskalis works on large-scale offshore multidisciplinary projects that require staff experienced in engineering and project management.

Airswift helps Boskalis with its workforce solutions, and has previously provided talent acquisition services for project management, project engineering, offshore construction and management roles.
