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.

Since those early days we have continued to grow and now have a focused team of consultants delivering permanent recruitment services to clients all over the UK and overseas.

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

Candidate Testimonials

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!

After being tagged in the job advertisement by a colleague, Emma was very quick to get in touch with me and have a thorough conversation about my background, skills and whether or not I was an appropriate candidate for the job. Emma kept me up to date throughout the process with friendly and informative conversations including preparations for the interview and eventually explaining that my application was successful. In a time that could become very stressful as my TX date was looming, Emma and the whole Demob Job team remained very calm and helpful. I couldn't recommend them enough, thanks for all the help.

Matt (ex-Royal Navy Assistant Marine Engineering Officer)

I was contacted by Emma having just left the Royal Navy about helping to find me work. After discussing my background and experience she spoke to me in detail about a role which she thought was a strong fit.  I consequently applied and was invited for an interview. Within hours of attending the interview Emma contacted me and told me I had been successful. Throughout the whole process she kept me informed of my progress and gave me advice on how to prepare for the interview. Most importantly I felt like she treated me as a person and not just another case. Highly professional and polite, I couldn’t recommend them enough to any Ex-Forces personnel. Thank you Emma and thank you Demob Job! Project Engineer, Tyne and Wear

Sean (ex-Royal Navy)

“I recently left the Royal Navy after 5 years’ service and I was struggling to find a job that suited my skillset.  Joanne contacted me about a job that she thought would match up with my previous role.  She was with me every step of the way always willing to advise me and she was a great liaison between the company and myself.  With Joanne's help I secured a job in an industry which will only expand in the future.  I’d like to thank Joanne and the Demob Job team for helping me on my journey to a new career.” – now a Field Service Engineer in the North East

Arran (ex REME Electronics Technician)

I was contacted by Emma at Demob Job a couple of months prior to leaving the military. Within 24 hours from first talking, Emma had already arranged two interviews with potential employers within walking distance of my house. One of these interviews proved successful and I was subsequently offered the job in which I am now very happy. Emma went the extra mile to ensure my transition into civilian life was easy and hassle-free, it felt like a very personal service and she has followed up with me a couple of times now, wishing me well and ensuring everything is going ok. All in all, Demob Job and Emma will do what it takes to ensure you find the right job. Field Service Engineer, Lancashire
