Kieran (ex Royal Navy Aircraft Engineering Technician)

Demob Job were a great help during my final months in the Royal Navy, helping me to make the transition into civilian employment seamless. Emma Saxton went above and beyond helping me get prepared and ready for interviews, giving me advise and tips specific to the company which I was interested in joining. Even after securing employment Emma was very helpful by making sure everything was running smoothly right up to the day I started and beyond. I would recommend Demob Job to anyone leaving the Armed Forces.  Kieran is now employed as a Field Service Engineer in West Yorkshire.

Rob (ex Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (REME))

Joanne Foster and the Demob Job team were instrumental in supporting myself and my application in finding a new and fulfilling role, in an industry where my skillset fits and has the opportunity to develop further. Joanne fully supported me from the initial telephone conversation and numerous interviews to my first week in role assuring that the role was a fit for me as well as the company.  Many recruiters disappear once the Job offer has been made, not Demob Job.  The team continues to offer advice and support to ex-service individuals via their website and social media for no-return, this is a company with honest intentions to support ex-forces.  I cannot recommend Demob Job highly enough.  Rob is now employed as a Security Systems Engineer in Wiltshire.

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.

Dean (ex Royal Air Force Avionics Technician)

Demob Job and especially Joanne Foster were exceptional in finding me a new role. Persistently I had been turned down for a role at the final stage as I was apparently too good, only to be refused a position above this (same company different site) as I did not have experience.  Joanne consulted with the employer and explained my case which thankfully led to interviews and, I am glad to say, an offer of employment which I have accepted. I can honestly say if it were not for the hard work and dedication of Joanne and the Demob Job team, I would not have secured this new job.  I would highly recommend them to all service leavers!  Dean is now employed as an Engineering Shift Leader in Castle Donnington, Derbyshire.

Roger (ex Royal Navy Weapons Engineer)

After being made redundant from my previous employer due to being furloughed for over 3 months, I was contacted by Joanne Foster at Demob Job, and was quickly offered the chance of an interview.  Within 48 hours of being contacted, I attended an interview and I was offered employment.  I was really impressed with the help and information that was available to me.  Joanne even followed up after my employment was finalised and made sure I was ready to start my new job the following week.  I would highly recommend Demob Job to anyone leaving their military career.  Roger is now employed as a Service Repair Technician in Warwickshire.

Stuart (Completed a full career in the Royal Air Force (RAF) as a Chef)

Demob Job was a fantastic agency to use. Very knowledgeable and professional and highly recommended for anyone leaving the services looking for a career in engineering.  Stuart is now employed as a White Goods Engineer covering the Hampshire area.

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.

Craig (ex Royal Navy Logistics Specialist)

I left the Royal Navy in July 20 having served just under 7 years as a Supply Chain Logistics Specialist. DEMOB JOB approached me on the 24th July to discuss a vacancy they had available. After a few telephone conversations with DEMOB JOB regarding the position and a little bit of information about the company I was successful in being put forward for an interview with the company the following week. The next day I was again contacted by DEMOB JOB to inform me I had been successful in the interview and the company was offering me the position available. I accepted the offer and was given a start date. I would have no hesitation in recommending DEMOB JOB to any ex military personnel or current serving members who are in the process of leaving HM Armed Forces and seeking employment in civvie street.  Craig is now employed as a Defence Operations Coordinator in Tyne & Wear.

Matthew (ex Royal Air Force Aircraft Technician)

This is the first time I have used Demob Job and I must say I'm very impressed.  Joanne was very efficient in arranging an interview, highlighting my key skills and attributes to the employer. I successfully managed to capture the role I applied for and I look forward to my new career path. I would highly recommend Demob Job to anyone who is leaving the Armed Forces and is looking for a new and exciting role.  Matthew is now employed as a Service Engineer within the Energy Sector.

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

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

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

Andrew (ex Royal Air Force – Mechanical Aircraft Technician)

Thanks for all the help and support I’ve received from Joanne at Demob Job with this transition to a new career of Field Service Technician. You’ve provided great knowledge about the company, role and some very useful tips for both interview stages pointing out transferable skills that can be taken from a military background. Thanks again I wouldn’t have been successful without your help.  Now a Mechanical Field Service Technician covering Liverpool and Manchester

Chris (ex Royal Signals – Communications Systems Operator)

After receiving a Demob Job Vacancy Alert that ticked all my boxes, I contacted Adrian for further details.  One-week later I was sat in front of his client and was duly successful in being offered the role.  Adrian immediately made me feel at ease, ensuring that the process was comfortable, yet structured, with all necessary support and advice along the way.  Three weeks from my initial contact with Adrian I start my new role and I'm over the moon!  I cannot recommend Adrian and his team highly enough, many thanks indeed!  Now a Field Based Training Executive in Gloucestershire

Julian (ex British Army – Household Cavalry Regiment)

After applying for a position through the Demob Job website I was contacted by Emma who was very helpful in helping me adjust my CV to reflect the vacancy.  Emma organised everything, including the interview which I attended and was offered the job.  I would like to personally thank the team at Demob Job and particularly Emma for her friendly professionalism and assistance.  Now an Estates Manager in West London

Sean (ex Royal Navy – Aircraft Engineering Technician)

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 vacancy that she thought would match up with my previous military 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 that 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 covering the North East

Harun (ex Royal Signals – Communications Systems Engineer)

I applied for a technical role in Northern Ireland which closely matched my profile and I received a prompt call from Joanne at Demob Job to discuss my current situation and to organise an interview with a potential employer.  She was so understanding of the daunting prospect of leaving the military and from the get-go, she was reassuring me that my skills and experience are attractive in the commercial sector.  Joanne kept me in the loop and made sure I was never left wondering where I was in the application process.  I don’t think I could have found such a good role that pays well and where I am able to utilise my skills from the military without her help.  I fully recommend Joanne Foster and Demob Job to anyone wanting to resettle from their military in the future.  Now employed as a Field Support Technician in Northern Ireland

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

Justin (ex-Royal Air Force Mechanical Aircraft Technician)

I left the RAF and began the laborious and slightly soul destroying task of searching for a job appropriate to my skill set. I was in contact with an old colleague who linked me to the advertisement posted on Demob Job by Joanne. I carefully read the criteria requested and contacted Joanne who promptly arranged a chat with me via telephone the next day.  Joanne advised me of what the job entailed and after a brief informal Q&A, proposed to put me forward for the role of Field Service Engineer at a Marine company. I was thrilled to hear back that the company were interested in speaking to me via web interview initially and I was coached on some salient points to assist me with techniques and common questions. That interview was completed and Joanne kept in touch between myself and the company for feedback. I was then contacted back by Kim as Joanne had a holiday but I was made aware of this well in advance and Kim became my contact. I was delighted to hear that I was invited to the company HQ on Friday for a face to face interview after being shortlisted. I was delighted to be contacted by Kim to give me the good news that I had been offered the job. Joanne and Kim have been amazing throughout and I cannot thank them enough. I would describe Joanne and Kim as dynamic, highly professional, very supportive and confidence inspiring. I would recommend Demob Job to any service leaver be it imminent or out of the services for some time. Field Service Engineer, Durham

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

Daniel (ex-Royal Navy Marine Engineer)

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. Project Engineer (Mechanical), Northumberland

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

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

Robert (ex-Royal Navy Marine Engineer)

I recieved a phone call from Emma explaining a vacancy had become available. Emma was very polite and helpful throughout the process and advised me before and after the interview. Any questions or queries I had were dealt with by Emma after hearing the good news of a successful interview and following job offer. Had Emma not of made the original phone call recognising my skills and job to suit I would not find myself working for a successful company in a role I enjoy. Thank you Emma. Project Engineer (Mechancial), Northumberland

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. Field Service Engineer, North West

Raymond (ex-Royal Navy Aircraft Technician)

I found Joanne and Demob Job very helpful and friendly.  It felt as if Joanne was actively helping me secure a job whereas with some agencies I feel as if they are not too bothered either way.  Demob Job seem like a very organised agency and Joanne kept me informed right the way throughout the process. Thanks once again and I appreciate all your help! Mechanical Shift Maintenance Engineer, Lancashire

Matthew (ex REME Avionics Technician)

I applied for a Field Service Technician Role through Demob and was promptly contacted by Joanne who after ascertaining my suitability for the role arranged for me to attend an interview. I was successful and offered the job the same day which I accepted. Throughout the entire process, Joanne was always on hand to help me prepare for the interview, keeping me informed and ensuring everything ran smoothly up to my first day of work. Overall all I could not recommend Demobjob enough. Field Service Technician, Belfast

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

Charles (ex REME Armourer)

When I first applied for my current position I wasn’t waiting long, Joanne had read my CV and contacted me within 30 minutes and was gathering information pertaining to the job advertised. This professional and friendly attitude along with continuous updates made the whole experience seamless as well as stress-free. Joanne did a wonderful job handling the details between me and my now current employer. I’ve been with a few contracting companies before and this has by far been the easiest I’ve encountered. Instrument Technician, Hertfordshire

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

Lee (ex-Royal Air Force Engineer)

Joanne contacted me from Demob Job regarding a service engineer vacancy in the south of England. I was extremely impressed with her knowledge of my transferable skills and that this is what they were looking for. Her enthusiasm and speed to get me an interview for the position and the constant updates was commendable. I would recommend Demob Job to all personnel who are leaving or have left the service to use them as they provide an excellent service and support through the whole process Radio Engineer, Reading

Michelle (ex-Royal Navy Marine Engineer)

I cannot recommend Demob Job enough.  Within 4 hours of applying for a position, Kim had called me to introduce herself and the agency, contacted the employer, secured me an interview and sent me a comprehensive email detailing who, what, where, why and when!  She kept in touch throughout the whole process and I'm pleased to say I attended the interview and was successful. I have dealt with many agencies including some of the 'big' names and none came close to the professionalism and thorough work of Kim at Demob Job. Thank you. Technical Sales Engineer, Cheshire

Carl (ex British Army Royal Engineers)

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

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.

Tony (Ex British Army Major)

I have had the benefit of Emma Saxton's help in recently securing a senior logistics management role in London. If I could summarise her many positive professional attributes in three words they would be; proactive, diligent and tenacious. She is undoubtedly the best recruiter I have worked with in recent months and I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone seeking a new management position, especially those with an Armed Forces background. She has considerable potential to advance in her chosen profession and I will be directly recommending her to friends and colleagues. Emma: it's been a pleasure! Logistics Manager, London
