The Royal Engineers are carrying out a six month trial, to see if it is viable to set up a procedure in the Corps, to assist individuals seek and prepare themselves for work in the private sector.

The idea is to ensure that Serving Sappers, Service Leavers and Veterans get a professional standard of employment support by an organisation that understands their capabilities. The service would be ran on a similar basis to that already ran by the REME using a revamped Corps Media Platform.

Former Lt Col Bob Lisle has been tasked with the trial and needs to populate the new database with contact details and where applicable CV's of individuals wishing to be included in the scheme. He would also appreciate information on companies that would interested in working with the Corps on this project.
