Trade experiences/opinions?

I’m due to start phase 1 to go on to the Corps soon but I am still not 100% on what trade is best. I’ve been through the army website, the joining info and read the threads on sapper life; doesn’t seem to be a lot of info talking about what it’s actually like to do each trade and why a trade would suit you best.

What I’d like to to hear is…
Which trades are more useful/use their trade the most?
Which ones are more fun?
Which trades are actually useful after the army?
Are certain trades better paid?
What trades have better career progression?
General experience/testimonial

Would appreciate any info ta
