What is RAJA?
Advise soldiers and veterans on; resettlement opportunities and services available, further education and professional accreditation opportunities and possible career path changes within the Corps or MOD.
Retain service personnel in order to provide support to the wider army. This is achieved by emphasising the benefits of Service life including qualifications and wider professional development. We will advise on different career paths within the forces for soldiers who are seeking a different challenge. Soldiers ultimately feel more secure, knowing that the further they progress in their army career, the likely they are to have a greater range of opportunities when they decide to leave.
Transition help. Advertisement of employment opportunities through our social media channels with no charge to any advertiser. CV advice and help to tailor the content to the job they are seeking. Biannual CV workshops and networking events that allows all transitioning service personnel to engage directly with prospective employers. Help, when choosing a location to settle and, where possible, spousal employment.
Engage with prospective employers and service personnel at all levels. As raja we actively engage with industry, showcasing what our Corps members can offer their companies. We help employers understand the unique skills, education, ethos of REME personnel and potential benefits they can bring to their organisations. We give employers access to our soldiers and officers during career transition, and assist them in any retraining or certification required to suit the needs of their organisation. Likewise we advise REME engineers on how to match their skills to those desired by industry and how to present themselves appropriately.
