General information

Vehicle Mechanic- Working on engines and vehicle systems, you diagnose problems and come up with repair solutions. Advanced training equips you to work on everything from motorcycles and generators to armoured vehicles, trucks and tanks. You can pick up professional qualifications in a range of trades, opening up fantastic job opportunities in the Army and beyond. Recovery Mechanic - When the Army’s vehicles break down in combat, it takes someone with bravery and know-how to go in and pull them out. You learn how to recover the Army’s ditched, bogged and overturned vehicles – anything from motorcycles to HGVs and tanks. You use powerful winch equipment and cranes to help get the job done. Vehicle Electrician - Working on various equipment, vehicles and parts, you diagnose electrical problems and come up with repair solutions. You work with everything from motorcycles, trucks and generators, fault-finding, repairing and re-wiring. These are widely recognised skills, which could open up job opportunities in the civilian repair trade. Metalsmith - You're a skilled professional, qualified to work with every type of metal. You become a welding expert and learn to use hand and power tools. You also get the skills to work from detailed engineering drawings and quick sketches. You can earn the same qualifications as a civilian Metalsmith, which opens up a wide range of job opportunities. Armourer - You inspect, repair and maintain all the military’s combat systems. This means working with a variety of weapons, from small arms and machine guns to heavyweights like the AS90 self-propelled gun. In the REME, you can also pick up professional trade qualifications that can open up job opportunities in the Army and beyond. Our history Maintaining and repairing the Army's equipment has always played an important part in ensuring the fighting efficiency of the Service. Until the late 19th century, however, the relative simplicity of the equipment in use with the Army made a specialist corps of tradesman unnecessary. The soldier carried out minor repairs on his own equipment, assisted as necessary by the armourer, the regimental farrier, the carpenter and the leatherworker. The early years of the Second World War brought the realisation that the existing repair system was not able to support the massive scale of equipment being deployed in every theatre. In 1941 the War Cabinet directed Sir William Beveridge to carry out an enquiry into the employment of technical manpower in the Services. As a result of the recommendations of this enquiry, the Royal Corp of Electrical and Mechanical Engineers was formed on 1st October 1942. One of its first missions was the Battle of El Alamein, the British Army's first major operation after the Corps was formed. It has since evolved into a highly skilled and specialised Corps that is capable of meeting the toughest of challenges anywhere in the world. Over the past 60 years REME has played a vital role in all of the Army's operations, being present in Palestine, Korea, Kenya, Malaya, Suez, Cyprus, Northern Ireland, the Falklands, Afghanistan and both Gulf Wars. It has also been involved in peacekeeping duties all over the globe, from the Balkans to Sierra Leone. In the former republic of Yugoslavia, REME has been present since 1992, often relying on its ingenuity rather than technology in the early years when conditions were more challenging.
