About us

Who We Are We're a specialist recruitment agency for the Games Industry, and also the Toys and Licensing Industry. How We Work
It’s a common misconception that recruitment agencies “simply send out CVs." There's a lot that goes on behind the scenes at Aardvark Swift! It goes without saying that the most talented candidates are in short supply, and we work tirelessly to make sure we know who they are and how to reach them. So; what makes us so different?

It's what you know AND who you know

As well as working hard to find incredible candidates ourselves, many candidates will also come directly to us. As an industry recognised and award winning recruiter, word of mouth goes a long way and we're very humbled that's the case!

Continued guidance and support

We don't just find a candidate and send them on their way to an interview. We're here to provide careers guidance and advice throughout the entire process. Whether that's CV building feedback, interview coaching or coordinating relocation and travel. We want our candidates to be as comfortable as our clients.

    CSR

    We always want to leverage our position and platform to benefit those less fortunate, and we never shy away from getting involved in charity work. We sponsor several events throughout the year, including The Light Fund ‘s quiz and golf day, which raises money for worthwhile charitable causes. We also raise awareness for conditions which are close to the heart of our team, such as Moebius Syndrome . We also get involved with charities within the industry. We have sponsored several GamesAid golf days over the last 15 years and our staff actively engage in the annual events hosted by SpecialEffect.
