Due to working in local government Im facing the dreaded "Job Devaluation". I have a feeling they'll be trying to pay me less - we find out next month. My civvy job is as a Technician in a council Engineering Team (pretty much all highways based) and I'm also a TA private (RLC Rad-Op). I'm studying for BTEC National Certificate in Civil Engineering on day release which I'll finish in the summer. Military Engineer (Surveyor Engineering) sounds interesting (I worked for a surveying/setting out company before my current job) but Im wondering if I would be able to apply to become an officer. I have 6 A/S levels rather than any A-levels due to my attraction to beer and a pub near the school I went to. PRO WORD NO WAH, what do RE officers do? Does anyone have any more info on the ME(Surveyor Engineering) trade? Will having Nat Cert Civ Eng help if I was to join the ranks? What are promotion opportunities like in the RE? I did go to my local AFCO but I there must be a shortage in my local infantry regiment because that seemed to be all they wanted me for. Cheers guys!
