    Carpenter and joiner.
    Building materials technician,
    Plasterer/painter

    im only interested in territorial positions in the above job roles if its possible to do such jobs part time ?
    i have exsperiance in the construction trade and a driving licence i want to make the right decision as i have joined the infantry and did not like it and made a real big mess of things i passed out but went walt so now i need to do it right and choose the correct path im on my way to the carrers but thought i would post this as to extra info on the opposed employment roles i should go for,

  4. You wont do any of those trades as a stab sapper. Youll be able to go ME combat, Plant op, driver or C3S. If youre a civvy bricky or chippy youll end up doing brickying or chippying as and when the Sqn needs it but you wont get any additional training in those trades.
