About Us

The company Headquarters is based in the Army Reserve Centre in Bishops Hull, Taunton. The future of REME Reserves, implemented through Army 2020, has seen the formation of 130 Field Company in Taunton, with detached Platoon in Plymouth. As a sub unit of 105 Battalion REME based in Bristol, the Company and detached Platoon will provide REME equipment support to dependant Regiments and Units, as well as training new and developing existing REME Reservists, in the South West of England.

Opportunities

Being part of 130 Field Company will not only afford you the opportunities to gain valuable engineering qualifications and experience, but will develop your command and leadership qualities which can be used to enhance and progress within civilian employment. As well as military and engineering training, 130 Field Company encourages sports personnel to progress within their sport in the military or to take up new sports. There will also be several opportunities to participate in adventurous training activities both in the UK and abroad.

As a member of 130 Field Company you will be trained and practiced in individual and team skills which will prepare you for a rewarding career as a member of the REME Reserve. Many of these skills are transferrable to vocational trades and recognised by employers, thereby helping you to progress in your civilian profession too.

The staff of 130 Field Company will support, guide and manage your career and development from Recruit to trained soldier and beyond. With enthusiasm and commitment your hard work can be rewarded with opportunities to promote and progress through the ranks. Members of 130 Field Company will have the opportunity to serve in operational environments and exercises alongside your regular Army colleagues across the globe in such areas as Canada, Belize and Kenya, amongst many more.

130 Field Company can offer a career for men and women from a multitude of civilian employments in the South West of England. We provide a friendly, stimulating and professional environment where you will be fully supported during your training and reserve career. A career with 130 Field Company will see you challenged in many ways, learn lots of new things and have lots of fun doing it, whilst getting paid to do so.

The Company’s close proximity to Yeovil and the large aeronautical engineering community of Augusta Westland has given rise to the opportunity of employing REME reservists into the Technician trade groups that have been unavailable to reservists up to this point. If you work as the equivalent to an aircraft, avionics or electronics technician in your civilian role then you can be employed within the REME Reserves. There are many other roles and trades within 130 Field Company from which to choose as follows:

REME Roles:

  • Vehicle Mechanic
  • Armourer
  • Recovery Mechanic
  • Metalsmith
  • Technical Stores Specialist

Support Roles:

  • Combat Medic
  • HR Administrator
  • Chef

What Next?

If you are willing to learn, develop and take up the challenge, we will support your career development every step of the way, in a close knit, family friendly environment.
