  • "Last year was challenging for recruitment and, with a lot of changes happening in the business, and in the industry as a whole, we needed help to support us in developing our team. Over the past 12 months, Aardvark Swift have assisted us in the successful placement of twelve candidates across a range of disciplines including Design, Art, Programming and Production, and at all levels of seniority. We’ve worked with Aardvark Swift for many years and can always rely on them to find a candidate with both the skills we’re looking for, and who is the right person for our team. The Aardvark Swift team are always happy to help and are generous with their time; they are always keen to understand exactly what it is we need and are very responsive to feedback."
