BT Creates 700 New UK Apprenticeship and 300 Graduate Jobs

Thursday, March 5th, 2015 (10:39 am) - Score 1,054

BT has announced that it plans to create 1,000 new apprenticeships and graduate jobs during 2015/16 for fields such as software development, IT, engineering (Openreach) and digital technology.

The jobs will be created across the UK, albeit with a focus on areas such as London, Glasgow, Belfast, Cardiff, Newcastle, Manchester and Leeds. Apparently some of the new jobs will benefit from a new Government backed Degree Apprenticeship, which allows related staff to complete full Honours degrees while working.

Many of the apprenticeship and graduate positions will find themselves based at BT’s R&D facility near Ipswich (Adastral Park), where they will become involved in helping to test and develop future communications networks and related services.

Clive Selley, CEO of BT Tech, Service & Operations, said:

I’m delighted that BT is able to create so many new career opportunities for school and university leavers across the UK. These are exciting times for BT as we make further advances in high speed broadband, mobile, sport and digital television, and our new recruits will be at the heart of the company’s transformation.

Through apprenticeships, graduate training and our work experience and traineeship programmes, there are a wide range of fantastic routes available for young people to create fulfilling, exciting careers at BT. This includes our new Degree Apprenticeships, which can lead to full Honours degree qualifications.”

End.

    Are they attempting to march on the spot in that image or is that training on how to shake your fist when things do not work?

      Door bell training. Gotta start with the basics.

    A picture taken during the mass MOD intake (bt support armed forces leavers) during first major fibre rollout. They were the mobile workforce who would swamp an area when fttc went live and workloads of fibre managed installs were understandably too high for the local engineers to meet.
    Still employed today either as specailist install/ tv team or moved into local teams.

    This being BT, I assume the apprenticeships will be management apprenticeships. No chance they will be employing anyone to actually do any work!!

      I’d be interested to observe the reaction to you calling an OpenReach engineer “a cowboy”,
