Airswift acquires Energy Resourcing from Worley to enhance global recruitment and contractor management offering
Airswift, the global workforce solutions provider, today announces its acquisition of Energy Resourcing, Worley’s global recruitment and contractor management business. Energy Resourcing will be fully integrated into Airswift’s existing brand, systems and processes.
The acquisition allows Airswift to better support both existing Airswift and Energy Resourcing clients’ global ambitions by providing access to an even deeper pool of the industry’s top technical talent, spread across a broader range of both industries and locations. This includes enhancing the business’s especially strong presence in the Americas, Asia Pacific, United Kingdom, and Europe.
The agreement represents the latest step in Airswift’s growth program, which includes its recent raising of bond finance, and consolidates its position among the world’s foremost workforce solutions providers serving the energy, process, infrastructure, mining, construction and technology sectors.
Janette Marx, Chief Executive at Airswift, says: “We’re in growth mode and acquiring Energy Resourcing represents a fantastic step forward for Airswift. It allows us to supercharge our expansion by growing our global footprint and enlarging our already-unrivalled candidate database for clients. We’re also delighted that it further strengthens our relationship with Worley, already one of our most valued partners.
“Critically, the Energy Resourcing team shares our commitment to continual improvement and an ambition to be the best workforce solutions provider in our sectors. These shared cultural values perfectly equip us to not only ensure a seamless transition for Energy Resourcing into our business but to more effectively scale our offering to clients over the years to come.”
Airswift is committed to both ensuring business continuity and minimal disruption for clients, contractors and employees as the business is integrated into the Airswift model, and to accelerating the business’s growth into the future. With this in mind, it is working diligently to confirm the new management team as swiftly as possible.
Ryan Hill, Managing Director at Energy Resourcing, says: “This is a hugely exciting move for all of us at Energy Resourcing. On one hand, we’ll be able to provide our clients with superior access to a global pool of talent, more diverse workforce solutions and more sophisticated support and systems from the wider Airswift community.
“On the other, it’s a great opportunity for our people to grow their careers within a bigger business, increase their chances to work on a broader client base and on a greater range of workforce solutions all around the world as well as accessing enhanced development programs.”
