Meet the Team

Calum is Vice President for Airswift in the Australasia Region. Calum is responsible for managing Airswift’s operations in Australia, New Zealand, East Timor, Papua New Guinea and the wider South Pacific islands.

What makes Airswift different?

The Airswift culture is heavily focussed on our customers. Be that a candidate looking for an international move or a client requiring a very specific service in a far flung corner of the globe you won’t find Airswift personnel simply trying to make a sale but instead listening, understanding and providing relevant solutions that match our customers’ needs and wants. Outside of this Airswift is also committed to the local environments and communities it operates in and ensuring local talent gets access to opportunity not only within our client organisations but also our own business and internal workforce.

Why are you passionate about what you do?

I love the variety involved in what we do as a business. From supporting a global project to recruit, hire and move hundreds of people all around the world or assisting a small engineering business find their next future leader the challenge always varies but needless to say the Airswift team is able to deliver a multitude of results in line with our customers wishes.

Beyond this through our business model Airswift is in a unique position to not only positively impact people’s lives through their careers but also that of the communities in which they and their families live. I have been privileged enough to witness first-hand the ripple effect through communities deriving from an individual (or group of individuals) securing a new role and the development of communities and local economies that comes with that of which Airswift plays a key part.

Which Airswift value(s) do you think are particularly important and why?

One of my favourites is Integrity – Airswift works all over the world in many different environments. The value of integrity represents that our business places extreme importance on going about our business in an honest way but also that this approach is consistent across our whole organisation. The business and environments in which we operate can at times be high pressure and our stakeholders recognise and trust that Airswift will act with integrity at all times.
