What we look for

At Swansway we look for people who embody our values; Caring, Honest and Proud.

The family culture of Swansway defines the business and defines its employees. While skills are important, we focus much more on the person, how that person will integrate with our culture and whether it will suit them, just as much as whether they will fit the job role.

All of us spend many hours out of our week at work, it’s therefore vital that we employ those people who will embrace and engage with our culture; as much for the candidate’s benefit as for our own; no one wants a permanent ‘Monday morning feeling’.
