What People Say About Us
After viewing a job vacancy online and submitting my CV and Cover Letter I was contacted by Joanne at Demob Job regarding my application for the role. During the call Joanne asked me a variety of questions to help her with my application and also so I could better understand the role itself. Joanne also assisted me by giving me helpful pointers before my two interviews for the role and giving me an insight in the sort of questions I would be asked. I have been in my new role for just under two weeks now and am really enjoying the position and it's challenges. The continuous support from Joanne during the process was invaluable and I would highly recommend Demob Job to anyone searching for employment.
Service Coordinator, Cornwall
Andrew (Royal Navy Artificer)
"It has been over 20 years since I last looked for work and I have never used a recruitment agency before. I found a suitable position advertised on Demob Job’s website and I called Kim and explained my position. Kim covered everything on how agencies operate along with how my application would progress. She went through the interview procedure with a few casual reminders on interview etiquette and things employers were looking for. Kim also ensured that my qualifications were relevant to the position being advertised so I could avoid unnecessary disappointment. I would thoroughly recommend Demob Job to anyone as their methods work and I am starting my new job on Monday."
Site Engineer, Winchester
Lewis (Royal Navy Aircraft Engineer - Avionics)
"I had just started job searching and after finding no suitable roles in the aircraft industry I decided to open my search to service engineers. I applied for a role online and received a call from Joanne the next day to discuss the role. I successfully attended the first and second interviews and was offered the position. Throughout the process Joanne would phone to let me know what stage everything was at and made everything very smooth. Upon leaving the Royal Navy this was the first role I applied for and to find myself straight into work was a weight off my mind. I would recommend Joanne and Demob Job for anyone looking for work after leaving the Armed Forces."
Service Engineer (Electrical/Electronic), Lancashire
Mike (REME Electronics Engineer)
"In the months leading up to the end of my military service I somewhat ambitiously applied for a job as a Customer Support Engineer. Even though this was in September and I was not due to leave until February I received a call from Joanne at Demob Job to discuss the role. Initially as my end of service was still some time away it looked like I would not be considered. Fast forward a couple of weeks and Joanne called me back to inform me this could still happen. After a phone and formal interview I was offered the job. Throughout this period Joanne was in contact with me almost on a day to day basis working tirelessly to get the details sorted and even helped me to get released early from the Army. I would recommend Demob Job and Joanne in particular to anybody leaving the Armed Forces."
Customer Support Engineer, East Midlands

Don (ex Royal Marines)
“During the month on November 2015, I spotted a job on the Demob website and the greater detail I read the more it became apparent the job appealed to me. I sent my CV along with a covering letter to Demob and later that same morning (Tuesday) I received a phone call from Joanne at Demob explaining more about the role and what the client was looking for.
Then on the Thursday I attended the first round of interviews, I was informed by Joanne that the client had invited me back for a second interview on the Monday, again I attended the client premises for the second interview, and then on the Friday I was offered the job by the client which was great news.
Joanne from Demob was very helpful and supportive throughout the whole process, keeping me updated and informed and also answering any questions or concerns that I had. Joanne remained at the end of the phone throughout and I also received follow calls which was great.
I am now embarking on a new career and would like to thank Joanne and Demob for their very friendly help and advice. Demob is a site I would recommend to all ex-military people who are looking for or wishing to change their career.”

Joannes's professionalism throughout the recruitment process, which included an 800 mile round trip for interview, was very much appreciated and I was kept well abreast at all stages of how my application was progressing. What is less easy to quantify is the unwavering support she also provided during the protracted process. This was a great source of support and a calming measure. These efforts ultimately lead to an offer of full time employment which i accepted. I would most definitely recommend Demob Job to others”

It was due to Adrian making that contact with me, preparing me for the interviews and seeing the whole process through that contributed massively to me getting the job.
