About Us

2 Aardvarks was created in 2014 to make specialist IT project skills available to small and medium-sized companies. We recognise that for SMEs, running a successful project is challenging. It is not always possible to have all the different skill sets you need within your existing team. This is where 2 Aardvarks can help you.

Our flexible approach means you can get professional and experienced support when you need it, without committing to full time or permanent contracts.

Flexible, Capable and Affordable

However you want to structure it, we deliver you the maximum value when you need it most

Short term

Maybe you need some intensive help for a few weeks with a particular project phase, like project scoping or UX design

Regular support

Or the scale of your project means you need more regular support, but just one or two days per week


Perhaps you just want occasional guidance and help on an ad-hoc consultancy basis

Full service

And, of course, we can also take the whole thing off your hands and manage the project for you, from start to finish
