Job description

Permanent recruitment can be boring - the worst part is spending all week working the 5 new jobs you pulled, only for the vacancy to be cancelled!
If this annoys you - we should chat - 4 years ago in the US, we decided this annoyed us too and we were only going to partner with clients who actually wanted to work with us… Get in touch to find out more.

Who are we?
Airswift, one of the world's largest and most successful specialist Workforce Solutions providers to focus exclusively on Energy, Process and Infrastructure.

Known for providing large scale solutions such as Contract Labor, Global Mobility Services and Payroll Solutions - Airswift now has a growing Direct Hire & Consultancy team, focusing on services such as:

  • Executive & Professional Retained Search
  • Salary, Benefits & Perception Studies
  • Employer Value Consulting

These offerings are new to us in APAC, but areas where Airswift has had huge success across the Americas and Europe - our perm team here retains that small business feel and has room to grow - we have budget and support, now we just need you.

What's the job?
At Airswift a Recruitment Consultant is a regional 360 role responsible for Business Development with new clients, Account Management with existing and Recruiting for key positions - you will support from:

  • Business Development Leaders, across the region generating leads and opportunities
  • Global marketing
  • Malaysia Delivery Centre
  • Presence in 8 countries (China, Indonesia, Malaysia, PNG, Brunei, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand)

With these resources you will be responsible for developing and owning your own market within one of our core business areas:
Energy - Oil & Gas, Power & Renewables
Process - High Tech Manufacturing, Chemicals, Metals or Biotech

Having such a large support, but such a small perm team - you can be guaranteed you will not be fighting for clients with your colleagues.
In fact our model requires you to be selective and only take on quality business.

What's the culture like?
Our office is in One Raffles Place at the heart of the CBD, it is a great area to meet clients and candidates with plenty of options for lunch gym, or after work socializing!
We have a team which is mixed with people from a variety of backgrounds and ages - we are more grown up than some agencies;
No gong,
No pool table,
and sadly no office dog!
What do we have?
A culture which is focused on results and not KPIs.
A commission scheme which rewards at better than market rate for your work.
A real career opportunity with potential for travel and positions around the world OR right here in Singapore - our APAC hub, where we are investing heavily.
We have a Friday social scene and we run incentives - but we are not the best agency for your first super fun job out of college!
Airswift is the place you come to grow your career and be treated like an adult, with respect for your time, your ideas and your skills.

Could you do the job?
While the market is buoyant, competition is plenty - to be successful in sales and recruitment here you will need to:

  • Be adaptable to different, cultures, communication styles and different levels of interaction.
  • Be confident teaching clients a new way of working and challenging their perceptions of recruitment.
  • Be able to qualify candidates, match to requirements and understand motivations
  • Have the confidence to advise candidates and clients on the best course of action.
  • Be willing and able to generate leads and market yourself/Airswift, driving interest through social media, producing quality business proposals as well as closing.

How can you demonstrate this?

  • Show us a track record of successful recruitment and placements in one of our markets OR something related
  • Have experience recruiting in Singapore, or other areas across Asia

Anything else?
English communication skills are a must, knowledge of Mandarin or other Asian languages are a plus.
Your industry background and client contacts are not what we are looking for - we want to hire consultants with the right skills and attitude - we will help with the rest!

If this sounds like you, we would love to have an informal discussion, please submit your CV.
Airswift is an equal opportunities employer.
