In 2018, Swift Temps officially opened a new office in the North West of England as part of its five year growth plans.

The new branch has three staff located in St.Helens - Merseyside, serving the whole of the North West region. Leading the new team is seasoned recruiter Dave Cottington who joined Swift as Managing Director (North West).

Dave brings with him 30 years of expertise and a phenomenal amount of local knowledge, he supported by Cathy and Nikola who between them have plenty of experience in supporting local clients and candidates alike across the North West of England.

The team are highly experienced in the provision of temporary and permanent staffing solutions across the driving, industrial, technical and logistics sectors.

The Local Jobs Market

The Liverpool City Regional Growth Strategy anticipates the creation of over 100,000 additional jobs in the North West area by 2040 - we aim to play a major part both supporting local businesses, and supporting local residents into work.

The local recruitment market is only set to become more competitive. A survey carried out in 2016 by the UK Commission for Employment & Skills highlighted how skills shortages have increased since the last financial recovery; 79% of UK employers say the biggest challenge will be a shortage of suitable candidates.

To overcome this we only operate across the engineering, technical and industrial sectors; allowing us to maintain our focus at all times. We take the time to get to know our clients and candidates, understanding the challenges they face and working in partnership to overcome them.
