“Just a quick note about the Cyber Security course over the last three days, which I thought was excellent. The instructors were very engaging and clearly extremely competent. The lessons and exercises on hacking and phishing, the TOR network and dark web were both fascinating and pretty scary too. Moreover their willingness to let us deep dive on points of interest and to provide answers tailored to our level of knowledge was the icing on a very high quality cake.” - Ted, Resilient course student, September 2018
“I want to thank you for running an excellent Resilient course providing an insight into the essentials of cybersecurity. My interest in working for cybersecurity and meeting all your needs and requirements for the position increased after the training course.” - Billy McDavid, Resilient course student, September, 2018
“I cannot fault SaluteMyJob and the hard work they do. I now work as a cyber security analyst specialising in Identity Access Management and Privileged Threat Analysis. This is all because of the opportunity they offered me.”

"As soon as I registered my interest with SaluteMyJob I knew I had picked a great ex-Forces recruitment company. From the outset I knew I was working with a highly professional and dedicated team who were passionate about making sure their clients were being selected for the right job for them. They took interest in my aspirations and what I wanted to do in my career outside of the Army. Jo worked hard to make sure that I was selling myself correctly to prospective employers, both with my CV and my pitch. I thoroughly recommend SaluteMyJob to any Forces (or ex-Forces) personnel looking for a recruitment company that actually delivers on their promises." - Andy, Jan 2017

"As I complete my first day I am writing to thank you for all your effort and support over the last couple of months that has culminated in my securing a job. My success is in no small part the result of the work that you've put in; the advice on my CV, preparation recommendation, the 'steers' on what to expect and how to handle tricky questions, the pre-interview encouragement - it all enabled me to succeed.
Your extra effort and personal approach clearly stood out amongst other recruitment agents I work with. You always made me feel like an individual rather than a number, an approach I urge you to maintain.
I wish you and the SMJ team good fortune for the future and I will certainly be pointing my friends and colleagues, who choose to leave, in your direction." - SaluteMyJob Candidate, Sept 2016
"I am overwhelmed by the support and guidance you have given me over the past few weeks, to understand what motivates me was key to developing my CV and future career options. This was all coupled with that full understanding on how a military mind thinks, even after leaving the service for 10 years... You enabled me to refocus with options that would not only suit my lifestyle but my strengths as well.
I can say I feel brand new, fully focused, motivated and ready for a new chapter, I have a goal to achieve that will hopefully enable me to support others like you have for me. SaluteMyJob is second to none you’re not considered a number, you feel your worth, your understood and you are valued, an experience I have not had with recruiters in the past." - Philip Croughton, Sept 2016
