Airswift have supported us with the sourcing and payroll of over 500 contractors during the term of our relationship. Our confidence and trust in Airswift resulted in EnQuest selecting Airswift as our sole supplier of contract personnel.

We realised substantial cost savings through the transfer, as well as vastly improved service levels to both EnQuest and our contractors during a low oil price environment. This also made our ways of working much more streamlined and efficient as we now have a one-stop shop for the recruitment of our contractor population.

Airswift have provided us with a team solely dedicated to EnQuest contractors. These consultants know our business and people exceptionally well and provide a fantastic support base for our consultant population.

It was a major challenge to transfer a large contractor population to a sole supplier, but the support and efficiency of Airswift throughout the process made the transition seamless.

We continue to be impressed with the service level and attention to detail provided by Airswift.
