Sappers Network offers 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. Our database includes skilled recent leavers, experienced members of the Reserve and former members of the Corps who have been successful in subsequent careers.

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, both as leaders and as team members. Recent conflicts have honed their experience in delivering large-scale and complex engineering projects in challenging environments.
