BT Creating 1,000 New Full Or Part Time Jobs In Birmingham

In its first move to a major hub outside of the capital, BT has announced plans to create 1,000 new full or part time jobs in Birmingham.

The telecoms giant is moving into twelve floors of a 17-storey premises in the West Midlands city and has already created more than 220 vacancies at Birmingham’s Three Snowhill offices. Recruitment for all of those positions is already underway, so act fast if you want one of the first jobs at the new offices.

Some of the roles on offer at BT in Birmingham include vacancies within the company’s analytics, data, digital, human resources and sales functions.

A further 700-800 vacancies will be advertised at Three Snowhill in the next few months and years. BT says that there is room for 3,500 staff at the site eventually, although some of those will be existing members of staff who are relocating from other offices.

Announcing the 1,000 vacancies in Birmingham, the chief executive officer of BT Group, Philip Jansen, said: “This is our first major regional hub site to open outside London and is a marker of how BT is transforming to meet the needs of our colleagues and our customers. It’s also a statement that we’re serious about the ‘levelling up’ agenda.”

“While our head office remains in London, we are committed to creating more opportunities and basing key operations in other areas of the UK too. A number of our senior leaders are now based here in Birmingham, as well as colleagues from across the business in a wide variety of roles, including exciting new technology research and digital product development functions.”

“Three Snowhill epitomises what we are trying to achieve through our new workspaces, and we continue to work towards that vision of providing future-fit, inspiring offices where people can collaborate, innovate and ultimately deliver the best for our customers and the best for our business.”

BT’s director for colleague experience, Elaine Bergin, also commented, saying: “This is a really exciting time for BT as we launch our new regional hub in Birmingham with some fantastic job opportunities for local people and those looking to move to the area.”

“BT is a great company and Three Snowhill is an incredible place to work, so I would encourage anyone who may be interested to check out our careers website bt.com/careers where more information and details on how to apply can be found.”

“We recognise that colleagues need the opportunity to work flexibly, and we can enable that through hybrid working. However, particularly for younger individuals and those joining BT for the first time, the opportunity to learn those soft skills and form positive relationships by working together in the office is invaluable,” added Ms Bergin.

Welcoming the announcement, the Mayor of the West Midlands, Andy Street, said: “It really is fantastic to see BT complete their switch to a new flagship office at Three Snowhill with the first of their colleagues moving in.”

“Not only is it a huge sign of confidence in the West Midlands that a company of BT’s size and stature is investing in and committing to our region, but it is also brilliant news for people’s livelihoods with around one thousand new jobs to be created.”

“I look forward to working with BT to ensure these roles are filled by local people as part of my 100,000 jobs plan,” added the Mayor.
