BT Openreach Recruits 42 New UK Engineers in the South West

Tuesday, Dec 24th, 2013 (1:25 pm) - Score 2,062

BTOpenreach has announced the addition of 42 new “high-speed fibre broadband” telecoms engineers to serve areas including Exeter, Taunton, Plymouth, Bristol and Salisbury in England.

The successful applicants, whom will help to build BT’s national FTTC/P superfast broadband network, include mature ex-armed forces personnel and young people in their teens and early 20s. All are apparently being offered 18-month fixed term contracts, once they complete an initial five-week training program that is.

Jon Reynolds, BT South West Regional Director, said:

We have been impressed by the high standard of our latest recruits, who come from a wide range of backgrounds and careers. They have shown a great enthusiasm for the work and the huge benefits this exciting technology is bringing to the South West.

It’s skilled, interesting work which will give the successful recruits the chance to gain experience in a fast-paced, constantly evolving industry. They’ll be at the forefront of connecting communities to the future.

Faster fibre broadband is providing a major boost for households and businesses across the region whether they are using this exciting technology to attract new customers, improve education and skills or browsing the internet for leisure and entertainment purposes.”

The latest jobs are in addition to the 1,000 new UK jobs announced by Openreach earlier this year.
