Our Candidate Feedback

After a thoroughly rewarding 36 years in the Armed Forces, I was not quite ready to give up my military career and therefore transferred to the Reserves.  In my search for a ‘real’ job, I was keen to find a company that was willing to support, or even actively encourage, my continued participation in the Army.

SQEP Ltd were extremely proactive in supporting me during my resettlement transition. It was clear that both Paul Mayo and Lee Younger were willing to assist, whether I was employed through SQEP or not. They provided sage advice and exceptional support.

It was also evidently clear that SQEP were committed signatories to the Armed Forces Covenant and that they were keen to further encourage and support my involvement in the Reserves.
