The "what trade should I go for" thread - all job selection related chat in here

After much deliberation, I have decided to re-enlist at the age of 30. I left the Infantry back in 2012, since then I've got married, had three kids and brought a house. Although all the sentimental accomplishments have been ticked off the box I'm still deeply unfulfilled. Battalion life became shite (Inf) but I actually miss the lifestyle, I don't know if it was the camaraderie, the Phys or weapons but civvie street seems dull. Perhaps I'm not looking in the right places but with only a level 2 in English and maths to my name (thanks ITC) my prospects are diminshing.

I've nailed it down to two choices, Royal engineers: Combat specialist roles and Royal armoured corps: Light/armoured cavalry.

Could anyone offer any advice or suggestions?
 
Hello,
My nephew has passed his assessment to join up, and is trying to choose between:

Electronic Warfare - Signals Intelligence
Royal Engineers - Surveyor
REME - Aircraft technician

I'd be really grateful for any advice or thoughts about any of these roles, including what life is like whilst doing these roles, and job prospects afterwards.
Thanks a lot, I'm sure there's tons of posts like this, so any thoughts appreciated

All have good job prospects. All are completely different jobs. RE Surveyor looks particularly attractive.
