299 Parachute Squadron Royal Engineers is an Army Reserve Unit that is part of 23 Parachute Engineer Regiment, the dedicated Regular Army Engineer Regiment in 16 Air Assault Brigade.

It takes a robust and determined character to succeed. Could you do it?

In order to carry out this highly specialist combat engineer Sapper role, the Squadron needs bright, motivated men and woman with the character and physical ambition to attempt the famous Airborne forces selection course ‘Pegasus Company’ (P Coy).

Upon successful completion of P Coy, soldiers are eligible to attend the Basic Parachute Course and qualify to wear the parachute wings and the coveted maroon beret of the British Airborne Forces.

As a Reserve Sapper you can choose to further specialize as a Combat Engineer, Plant Operator, Driver, Signaller, Resources Specialist and or subject to availability, a range of artisan trades and apprenticeships. The Squadron also has opportunities for Chefs, Human Resource Specialists and limited vacancies for medics and vehicle mechanics.
