What our clients say about us?

Thank you for all the hard work you’ve done again this year finding me, yet again, fantastic candidates for interview

Please thank everyone at Demob for all their invaluable help this year and wish them all a Very Merry Christmas

I was asking for help on LinkedIn after finding myself out of work for the first time in my adult life, Joanne was the first to message me and also took the time to call me and help me in my search for my next job. It was amazing to see how committed she seemed to finding me a new role. I can't thank her enough for the advice she gave me and I could not have asked for a better call to make me feel more at ease and confident in my quest for a new job. Thank you Joanne, you've been amazing

The interviews went very well.  All on time.  All the guys interviewed really well and they met our brief with regard to “job fit” so that was spot on – thank you.  We have the difficult task of selecting one as all are suitable. To be honest I’ve thought about firing myself to make room.  We plan to meet internally soon and make our decision promptly. Hopefully by tomorrow but latest by the coming Monday.

Many thanks as always you really came up with the goods again.

I would like to firstly thank you for providing two exceptional candidates, both candidates were everything we asked for within the job specification and I believe that this was the correct approach to recruiting for this position.

I am very grateful for the effort you have put into filling this vacancy, and I look forward to dealing with yourself again in the future.
