Airswift, the global workforce solutions provider for the energy, process and infrastructure sectors, has secured a contract with Alstom, a global leader in transportation, to manage the recruitment of its contingent workforce across Australia.

The contract will see Airswift act as the exclusive technical recruiter for Alstom’s blue- and white-collar contingent roles. The company’s scope of work includes resourcing, consolidation and management of the contingent workforce across a total of 13 sites, which will include the country’s biggest public, and first fully-automated transport project, the Sydney Metro Northwest, and the Sydney Light Rail project.

Commenting on the contract, Adam Street, Recruitment Manager – Infrastructure for Australia and New Zealand at Airswift, said: ‘The award marks a major milestone in our diversification. Airswift has traditionally been known for its work in oil and gas so this contract is a significant step forward in our evolution, underlining our capabilities in the infrastructure space.’

Over the last three years, Airswift has successfully diversified its target markets, providing its clients with unrivalled flexibility and service across the wider energy, infrastructure and process sectors from 50 hubs globally.

Street adds: ‘The Australian government is set to invest $100 billion in infrastructure projects over the next 10 years and we are perfectly placed to source the very best talent available on the market.’
