Heya, for those I've not spoken to, I'm Ex-Australian Arty and I'm exploring the RE as a career option. However there are alot of Trades to go for. Seeing as I'm "Getting back in" (Different Army, idea's the same) I don't think I'll be getting out in a hurry, but this time I'd like to get out and have some form of skill. From what I gather, it's usually the Artisan trades that end up spending the most time doing the sapper work. So my question is, who's ex RE artisan, who's got out and got a job in their trade? How did you find the reaction of employers to your previous experience? and how easy/difficult was it finding work in that field? Any replies would be greatly appreciated, Cheers, Grievo.
