A modern high tech Army needs highly trained men and women to keep equipment working. The Role of the REME is to do just that; maintain, repair and manufacture equipment to keep battle winning aircraft, tanks and weapons in good working order.

Every unit in the Army has members of the REME attached to it. How many and what trade depends on the size and role of the unit, i.e. an Infantry unit will more likely to have armourers to repair the weapons, an aircraft unit will have aircraft technicians.
If you enjoy variety, the men and women in REME can move around from one unit to another. This has the benefit of seeing another part of the world, working with different units and equipment as well as meeting and making new and more friends.
As well as being a skilled technician you will also need to be a trained soldier. As one of the Corps founders once said 'it is better to be a live soldier-technician than a dead super technician!'
Throughout you career, continuous military training will also need to be completed, this will keep you both fit and in full working order so that you can do likewise to the equipment needed by others.
