Specialists in staffing and mobility for rail infrastructure projects

Rail Feature Image

Airswift is an international rail recruitment agency

The global rail industry is evolving, and various social and technological factors are contributing to a new renaissance in the sector.

Consider population growth. In Australia, 24.6 million people were recorded as living in the country as of 2017. That’s expected to nearly double to 42 million by the year 2066.

Population growth of this magnitude is helping to prompt a global infrastructure revolution. Effective transport solutions need to be provided to cope with demand and better connect cities.

Consider technology, too, which is transforming traditional rail beyond recognition. Across the world, the industry is moving toward high-speed rail solutions and digitisation. The rail industry in the 21st Century is moving away from people driving trains toward driverless engines with onboard digital systems.

With more than 40 years working in technical industries, Airswift has worked alongside some of the most reputable names in the global rail industry. 

We focus on sourcing and providing talent and services that offer innovation and efficiency for your organisation.
