We are transforming the way direct hire recruitment is delivered around the world through our unique approach based around an award-winning recruitment process and our world class team.

Our Approach

Unlike a traditional contingent model, Airswift works in partnership with client organisations to lock in simple service level agreements (SSLA’s) that govern the direct hire process. These SSLA’s, typically no more than two to three pages, contain commitments from both parties around key subjects such as exclusivity, dedicated resources, candidate submittals, interview process, weekly reporting, timelines and fee structure.

Our Process

Airswift’s award winning recruitment process has been developed through decades of supplying technical expertise to the energy, process and infrastructure industries. What makes it really stand out is that each stage is underpinned by unique best practice supporting features such as:

  • Job description optimisation
  • Candidate suitability matrix
  • Advanced skill and competency matching
  • Multi source searching
  • Documented screening interviews
  • Psychometric assessments
  • 360 Referencing
  • Continuous improvement (client & candidate)
