Who are Demob Job?

Demob Job was established in 2005 by our Managing Director Adrian Cheesman after he completed a successful full career in The Royal Corps of Signals.

His vision was to build an ethical and professional recruitment business which would champion the employability of personnel who have previously served in our Armed Forces; Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force.

Our future looks bright as we continue to prosper through planned growth.

Candidate Testimonials

Anthony (Royal Air Force Engineering Manager)

“Having uploaded my CV to various sites (LinkedIn, CV-Library etc) I started to receive calls from numerous recruitment agents. I quickly discovered many of these agents were merely utilising algorithms to match keywords with job specs. I found myself asking some if they’d actually read my CV as the roles being suggested where miles away from my skill set!   Joanne at Demob job couldn’t have been further away from this in her approach. Warm and friendly from the outset with a genuine interest in my experience and intended career direction. By the end of the first call, it was evident time had been invested to match me with the role on offer. Her continued support throughout the whole interview process was most welcome and soon alleviated any unease felt towards my first interview in over 30 years. I’m pleased to say that despite my initial nerves the outcome was successful. Contact details for Demob Job should be included in all career transition workshops, they provide a service that can only be described as superb.” Anthony is now employed as an Engineering Auditor.

Daniel (ex Royal Navy – Avionics/Electrical Engineering Supervisor)

After 6 years in the Royal Navy I wanted more stability for my home life.  Joanne has been a key part of securing my next career and has been very proactive during every stage of job searching. She found my profile online and very quickly lined up several interviews that ticked my boxes.  Even though I was searching for work 200 miles away from where I was based, Joanne managed to set up interviews that fitted in with my schedule.  I cannot thank her and Demob Job enough for their professionalism and constant communication during my career change. 10/10!  Now an Installation and Maintenance Technician in Leicestershire

Karl (ex Royal Navy Marine Engineer Submariner)

‘After 23 years in the armed forces you learn to do a lot of things, unfortunately, none of them is how to be a civvy and look for a job. I began looking for work in the field of engineering and a friend of mine recommended Demob Job, I’m glad that I did. Joanne was very quick to respond to my internet inquiry and keen to give as much information as possible on the job in hand.  When accepted for an interview Joanne made sure I was as prepared as possible with notes from other applicants and any information she thought was useful.  When she was away, she made sure another member of the team was briefed on my situation so they would be able to help.  Throughout the whole process, you could really tell Joanne was working hard on your behalf.  I secured employment and began my new career two weeks ago and I’m very grateful to Joanne and the Demob team for their efforts.’  Karl is now employed in the heavy industrial engineering sector.

Chris (ex Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers)

Emma contacted me after I applied for a Field Service Engineer position. Within days Emma came back to me, spoke to me about the vacancy and then helped me tweak my CV specifically for the role.  Emma helped me with every step of the process happy to use several methods of contact as I was difficult to reach due to my work commitments.  She was patient and understanding.  Thanks to Emma, within 5 weeks I had started a new job. In addition, my new boss has since alluded that this was his first-time using Demob Job and he was so pleased how it had worked out. Both my new boss and I would highly recommend Demob Job to anybody who is looking for a new career after their military career.  Double thumbs-up for Demob Job! Now a Field Service Engineer in West Yorkshire

Andrew (ex Royal Marines)

I could not recommend Demob Job highly enough. I was dealing with Joanne Foster who was very helpful, friendly, and professional.   She fully prepared me for my interview and was thorough throughout the whole application process, with continual updates and phone calls.  Joanne provided me with sound advice for the interview and greatly aided my preparation.  Thank you for all your help in finding my next career step.  Andrew is now an Engineering Auditor.

Luke (ex-Royal Signals Communications Systems Engineer)

Joanne approached me upon finding my CV online, she was very friendly and extremely enthusiastic about the role she matched to me. Joanne had a very good understanding of my skills interpenetrated from my CV and understood my background well. Throughout the whole process Joanne kept me informed of any news very promptly and I believe she liaised with the company to the highest standard. I would recommend Joanne and DEMOB JOB to any of my colleagues that may leave the forces in the future. Communications Systems Engineering Team Leader, Manchester

Mark (ex REME Avionics Technician)

I phoned Demob Job to enquire about a job I had seen advertised which closely matched my skill set. I was put in touch with Joanne at Demob Job who explained the vacancy in detail and discussed my background and expectations.  This lead to me being introduced to the company which resulted in an interview being arranged very quickly. The interview was a three-step process, one interview by phone, and two further interviews face to face. Joanne kept in constant touch with myself and the employer making sure that I knew what to expect and that I was fully prepared for each interview. Without Joanne`s help, support, and encouragement, it would have been extremely unlikely that I would have got the job.  Even after the job offer Demob Job still contacted me to ensure that I was completely happy.  I found everybody who I dealt with at Demob Job, especially Joanne, extremely helpful and polite.
