We appreciate the benefits and the varied skillset that a ‘Sapper’ brings to the civilian workplace.


Sappers Network partners with employers to offer exclusive access to a pool of talent that combines the discipline and commitment instilled by successful military careers with a wide range of commercially valuable trade and management skills.

The Royal Engineers select and train some of the Army's best-educated and most capable men and women. Highly qualified when they leave the service, Sappers are renowned for their adaptability, resourcefulness and willingness to tackle challenges – cheerfully and as team members. Recent conflicts have honed their experience in delivering large-scale and complex engineering projects, at pace, in challenging environments.

We offer access to experienced former Royal Engineers at a broad range of management seniority and with an equally broad range of project and trade supervisory skills which are shown in Trades of this website.

Please also see our Employers page and full terms and conditions for further information.
