Professional search: finding permanent talent

Airswift's professional search specialists can uncover the best candidates for difficult to find permanent positions.

Engaged Search:

Engaged searches are research-focused and ideal for confidential and highly sensitive searches. Associated primarily with technical engineering and managerial appointments, engaged search has a meticulous, methodical, collaborative, and consultative approach.

Retained Search:

A retained search is often associated with senior appointments. This may include executive appointments at the director to C-suite level. These are critical hires essential to achieving financial, strategic, and commercial goals.

Multi-Hire Campaigns:

When hiring in large quantities, internal HR teams may need additional support to hire multiple technical and managerial staff.

Client 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 gave excellent help with the whole process, from visa, flights to medical transportation. Everyone has been very helpful and welcoming. A great team all around. Airswift is an excellent organisation.
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.
I get to deal with a lot of agencies, and I would say Airswift is at the top.

Frequently Asked Questions


What does the recruitment and talent acquisition process look like?

Our talent acquisition team uses a variety of sourcing techniques to ensure maximum coverage of the active and passive candidate pool.

This includes a range of interpersonal and technology-focused approaches:

  • Applicant tracking systems
  • Candidate referral schemes
  • Corporate website advertising
  • Digital marketing (SEO/PPC)
  • Email campaigns
  • Job boards
  • Networking events

Key to our approach is the discipline focus of our recruiters. When you need a Cost Engineer and a Construction Manager, you will be assigned different recruiters.

Each consultant is an expert in their vertical and understands the skills, terminology and desirable traits/qualifications for both roles. This niche focus ensures a higher hit rate of suitable candidates for our clients.
