What this job is about
This isn't Call of Duty – it's the real deal. As a Weapons Technician, you're a member of the Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Branch of the Forces and are responsible for everything from repairing training modules to maintaining various weapons – think grenade launchers, light weapons, machine guns and anti-tank weapons – so they're ready whenever they're needed. You'll also need to maintain scales, hydraulic lifts, locks and security containers, personal flotation devices, rebreathers, and equipment for heating, cooking and lighting in the field. You'll definitely need technical skills and nothing less than perfect attention to detail, so past Xbox experience won't really count.
