101 reme deploy

From our company locations in Liverpool, Manchester, Prestatyn and West Bromwich, we train and deploy in support of and working alongside the Regular forces.

These training deployments often include the repair and recovery of a wide range of equipment, from Challenger 2 main battle tanks to 105mm light artillery pieces as well as the opportunities to develop your technical and leadership skills.

In addition to military training, 101 Bn REME offers the opportunities to take part in team sports up to national level, adventurous training and social activities.

For example, in 2015 REME Reservists will be taking part in a skiing exercise to France, a battlefield tour to Gallipoli and competing in the Welsh 1000 race as part of an interesting and diverse annual training program.

Who are we looking for?

The Army Reserve can be very rewarding and offers many activities that you would not find in a normal day to day job. In return, we need motivated and enthusiastic men and women with an engineering mindset who are prepared to give their spare time to undertake an exiting challenge.

You don't need any military or engineering background, although this would help, as all military and trade training is provided. Your commitment to 27 days training a year (weekends/evenings of your choice and a 2 week 'annual camp') will enable you to progress through to becoming a trained soldier and successful REME Reservist.

Whilst you attend training, you will be paid a rate which will depend upon your rank and if you attend the 27 days and pass your annual tests, you will receive a 'bounty' payment of between £500 - £1600. Currently, there are also some additional benefits such as a tax-free ‘golden hello’ payment of approx £2300 on completion of training. If this sounds good and you want to give it a go, or require any further information, please contact us below:
