Case Studies
Aardvark Swift

Established in 1989 Aardvark Swift was the first recruiting specialist in the video games industry. Despite increasing competition, high levels of service and good industry knowledge saw the company quickly rise to become the best known and most successful recruitment consultancy in the vibrant European computer games recruitment market. More recently, the company has diversified, and it now provides recruitment services to the Video Games, Mobile Entertainment and Toy industries.

During 18 years of trading, Rotherham based Aardvark Swift has overcome both market and management changes to successfully face increasing competition in their specialist fields. This success can be attributed to the dynamic forward thinking approach of the Aardvark Swift board who continue to drive the company to new heights.

The Requirement

In 2002 eleventeenth designed and built a website for Aardvark Swift, with clearly defined objectives in mind. They needed a system that would enable their target audience to communicate with them via their website for posting CV’s and to find jobs quickly and easily, as well as being visually sympathetic to the Aardvark Swift niche sector and the user.


eleventeenth quickly identified that automating their processes and managing their vast number of vacancies more efficiently would significantly improve the productivity within the business and would provide a solid platform on which to create an end-to-end recruitment system.


Over time, the company asked us to develop a complete recruitment management system for them, but initial quotes for a ground up system were prohibitive, and Aardvark Swift went elsewhere for a solution that, ultimately, proved inadequate.


Aardvark Swift returned to ask eleventeenth again to develop a system for them following the disappointment of their most recent software investment. Since the video games market is of strategic importance to eleventeenth, we decided to take the opportunity to develop ResourceDLM, our class-leading recruitment management solution.


The Solution

Five years later, eleventeenth continues to work closely with Aardvark Swift to enhance and develop ResourceDLM. It was for this reason that in 2006, eleventeenth were asked to redesign Aardvark Swift's website, deploy the latest updates to ResourceDLM and integrate aspects of our Content Management Module, to enable Aardvark Swift to manage their own site content, as well as their vacancies, clients and candidates via the ResourceDLM interface.
