Swift Placements

Swift Placements was created to support our clients with their permanent requirements and has complemented our highly-successful temporary solutions team. Led by Mark Richey, an experienced recruitment professional with over eight years of industry expertise, Swift Placements has gone from strength to strength, supporting customers across multiple markets. These include automotive, chemical, FMCG, manufacturing and production – as well as driving, recycling and logistics.

Our customer’s have benefitted from working with a trusted recruitment partner able to support both their temporary and permanent requirements, delivering a fully-integrated service in the process. Having initially started from our office in St.Helen’s in 2018, last year we opened a second office in Salford Quays, Manchester as we continue to expand our offering to customers across the region.

Our Service

As a business, Swift Placements team of trained recruitment professionals are committed to providing our customers with a world-class service delivered to the highest industry standards. From the very beginning, we want to ensure that only the best talent relevant to your role is submitted, therefore we meet with all of our customers to discuss their requirements in more detail, understanding the key expertise the employee will need and how they can add to the business. As a result, every candidate is screened and vetted prior to CV submission. This is in the form of a meeting to understand their needs, experience and what they’re looking for in their next role, enabling us to make sure it’s the right fit for everyone involved.


From coordinating diaries and arranging interviews to providing in-depth preparation to both parties, our recruitment experts are able to manage interview dates at the client’s site, providing clear, concise interview feedback to all. We’ll also collect references, manage the candidate’s notice period and leave you – the client – to concentrate on what you do best; running a successful business. However, our value doesn’t stop there. We’ll also check-in after the candidates start-date for an after-placement meeting to ensure everything is running smoothly. We can also provide any assistance where needed. We’re committed to providing the very best recruitment service for our candidates and clients.

Our Success

In 2020, our St. Helen’s Office was honoured to win the prestigious ‘Business start-up of the year’ award with St. Helen’s Chamber of Commerce for the invaluable work both Swift Placements and Swift Temps had done supporting local businesses across the area. Our dedication to efficient, customer-focused recruitment helped us to deliver the best local talent for a range of exciting projects in numerous industries.

Upon accepting the award at the time, Dave Cottington, our Managing Director, said, “We’re delighted to win this fantastic accolade and receive recognition for the value we provide our customers. It is testament to the hard work of our team who continue to pursue the highest levels of customer service every day. We’re excited to continue supporting our customers across the region, helping them to achieve their business goals”.
