About the role

Combat Engineers provide the New Zealand Army with vital combat engineering support. As a Combat Engineer in the Army Reserve you will be trained in a variety of different specialist skills including explosive demolition, bridge construction, mine clearance, small boat handling and obstacle breaching.

Although Combat Engineer is the only engineer trade that is offered in the Reserves, we are very interested in people with civilian qualifications within the other trade areas such as plumbers, electricians, carpenters or plant (earth moving equipment) operators.

Soldiers with qualifications in these areas will predominately train as a combat engineer, but may have the opportunity to conduct some transition training so their highly valuable skills can be utilised in a military environment.
