International workforce services company Airswift has laid down roots in Aberdeen on the back of growing demand from the North Sea energy industry.
The group, whose 6,500-strong global team works with clients ranging from oil and gas super- majors to service companies in a variety of sectors, is confident of securing even more work in the north-east after opening an office on Rubislaw Terrace.
Airswift said its new office, which is led by client service managers David Gibb and Phil Hoyle, cements its focus on Aberdeen as a key oil and gas hub.

The firm sees many new opportunities opening up for it in a region bouncing back from a severe economic downturn.
Confidence was further boosted by a recent contract win to provide payroll and recruitment services for Repsol Sinopec Resources UK.
Regional director Pete Denham said: “We are continuing to grow in Aberdeen and it is vital that our clients and contractors receive a personalised and responsive service.
“For example, we recently managed a medi-vac situation in the city which needed a local and immediate response.
“Our client was delighted with the response and expanded the scope of our contract further – making the decision to open a local office a very easy choice.”
