National telecoms giant and ISP BT has announced that they are aiming to create a further 1,300+ apprenticeship and graduate jobs, which will cover various different roles including TV production, engineering, customer service and in cyber-security (EE and Plusnet will hold some of the roles).

The move is in addition to last week’s announcement from their “legally separate” network access division, Openreach, which pledged to recruit a further 3,500 engineers (here). Overall the BT Group is one of the UK’s largest employers (82,800 people) and the latest round will hunt for new apprenticeships / graduates from locations including London, Glasgow, Belfast, Warrington, Bristol, Cardiff, Doncaster and Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

Theresa May, UK Prime Minister, said:

“I welcome this announcement from BT. More high-quality apprenticeships means more young people with the vital skills and training to take advantage of the economic opportunities of the future.

Our modern Industrial Strategy, in conjunction with business, will help drive developments in fields like Artificial Intelligence and cyber technology – meaning more high-tech jobs and greater prosperity for people across the country.”

Gavin Patterson, CEO of BT, said:

“We’re proud to be leading the industry by investing in training a huge number of people in the digital skills that the UK economy so vitally needs.

BT has a rich history of innovation, and it’s an incredibly exciting time to be joining the company as we look towards growing our cyber-security business, developing 5G technologies and enhanced TV content.

Our apprenticeship and graduate scheme will equip people with the skills and on the job training they will need to succeed in the future.

I’m looking forward to welcoming all our new recruits into the business.”
