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

Gemma (ex Royal Armoured Corps and Royal Corps of Signals)

Leaving the British Army during a pandemic was something I never expected to happen. I was quite concerned with the employment opportunities, however I managed to find a job I was interested in and applied to Joanne at Demob Job.  Joanne rang me the very next day to set up an interview.  The communication was second to none through the whole process, and Joanne was brilliant. Joanne gave me some brilliant advice to prep for my interview and even followed up on the day.  I am proud to say the interview was successful and I was offered the job which would start only two weeks later. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Joanne for making my transition into civilian life seamless.  Gemma is now employed as a Telecommunications Apprentice Trainer in Wiltshire.

Amanda (ex RAF Intelligence Analyst)

Huge thank you to Adrian at Demob Job for his help and support successfully finding a role during the COVID-19 pandemic. Within a week of speaking to Adrian, I had had a successful interview for a job that excited me and started work 2 weeks after that. Adrian kept in touch throughout the whole process and unlike some other agencies, seemed to really care about finding me the right role.  Now an Instructor in Wiltshire

Chris (ex Royal Air Force – Radar Technician)

Leaving the military is a daunting thought for everyone.  But to leave when a pandemic is in full swing really made me rethink my options.  However, after speaking with Adrian at Demob Job, my mind was at ease. We spoke about what I was looking for with regards to my future.  After only days he found what I can only describe, as a dream job for me. From then on the process was swift. I never felt alone and Adrian was there every step of the way.  A few months ago I was petrified about how I would pay to keep a roof over my head.  Now I’m comfortably in a job I enjoy.  I can’t thank Adrian and Demob Job enough for getting me on the right path to a fulfilling career.  Now a Maintenance Engineer in London

Mark (ex-Royal Signals Radio Technician)

I saw a position advertised on the Demob Job website that caught my interest and seemed to be exactly what I was looking for.  I zapped a copy of my C.V with a  covering letter over to Joanne at and she called me back within an hour.  Joanne said that she thought my skills set matched most of those required by the prospective employer. Anyway, to cut a short story short, Joanne managed to get me an interview within a couple of days and the rest is history.   My experience with Demob Job has been extremely positive all the way through; very polite, very courteous and very discreet. Unlike other agencies where you get passed around from one person to another, the whole process was managed by one person.  Joanne kept in constant contact to make sure that things were on track.  I would thoroughly recommend Demob Job recruitment agency to all ex-military. They do a great job! Thanks, Joanne, I start my new job on Monday. Electronics Assembly & Test Engineer, Carlisle, Cumbria

William (ex Royal Navy Marine Engineer)

Within 5 days of contacting me, Joanne had secured me an interview in my preferred field, which subsequently led to me gaining my first job outside of the Royal Navy.  Joanne could not have been more helpful throughout the whole process, keeping in regular contact the whole time and always being on hand to answer any questions that I had.  I would not hesitate to recommend Joanne to any service leaver in the future.  William is now employed as an Operations Engineer in Somerset.

Richard (ex-Royal Air Force – Aircraft Mechanical Technician)

After uploading my CV to several job boards, I was contacted by Kim of Demob Job, to discuss what I was after in a new job and employment opportunities within the relevant sectors. She was regularly in contact throughout my job search, application and subsequent offer of employment, to provide updates, encouragement and ensure I was ready for the next stage of the process. She underwent this task in a friendly, personal and professional manner, which ensured I was relaxed and confident, in what is usually an uncertain and stressful time. The service provided by Kim and the Demob Job team is second to none and should be every ex-forces first stop when seeking employment. Mechanical Field Service Engineer, Thetford, Norfolk

Noel (ex REME Avionic Technician)

Just before I was made redundant I received a phone call from Emma at Demob Job having previously registered on their web site. She asked if I would be interested in applying for a Field Service Manager position. I was sceptical at first but she convinced me to make an application. Unfortunately, I was unsuccessful at the interview but gained some valuable feedback which suggested that I may be more suited to a hands-on role as a Field Service Technician.  This led to a further interview and, I am glad to say, a job offer. If I had not let Emma convince me to attend the initial interview I would probably never have even tried for the second position. I would have no hesitation to recommend both Emma and Demob Job to my ex-military colleagues. Field Support Technician, Dorset
