Company Details

With headquarters in London, BT Group plc is better known to most of us as BT and it is perhaps one of the best known brand names out there in the United Kingdom. As it is one of the largest telecommunications and services companies in the world, there should be a wealth of opportunities for school leavers, students and graduates looking for a career in this type of industry. There are many different aspects to the BT group, such as BT Retail and BT Global Services so young people and graduates should have a lot to choose from.

You can just imagine the vast range of potential career opportunities available within the BT group. To keep BT moving forward, they invest heavily in young people because they believe school leavers, undergraduate students and graduates are the people to take BT into the future. For those young people who don’t want to take the university route, there is a whole range of award-winning apprenticeships offered by BT lasting from two to four years, depending on the level of apprenticeship and area you want to train in. Students and graduates will find a variety of graduate career programmes and internships that could take them into future leadership roles within the group.

Naturally, BT are looking for bright, enthusiastic young people to join their huge team of over 89,000 people worldwide. Young people, students and graduates who are full of innovative ideas might find roles with BT rewarding. Whatever your area of expertise, there could be opportunities for you with BT. Obviously, with specialist areas such as technology, relevant qualifications will be needed for graduate programmes. Apprenticeships and BT’s other work with schools to get young school leavers into jobs means full training will be given for those who are inexperienced. While BT might not necessarily be associated with part time student jobs, there could be openings within their retail and customer services divisions, for example, if you apply locally.

Whether you are looking to work in a location close to home or you would like a career elsewhere in Great Britain, or maybe you would even like to work overseas as part of your career development, the BT group has opportunities both nationally and internationally. Company headquarters is in London but for the right candidate, BT also has a presence on the continent in European countries, across Latin America, throughout the United States of America and Canada, Asia, the Middle East and Africa - around 170 different countries in all. If you are hoping for jobs abroad, BT could well have an overseas career path to suit you.

For school leavers looking to earn a placement on one of the many BT apprenticeship programmes, for undergraduate students and graduates thinking about internships with BT or for graduates hoping to get graduate jobs on one of the BT graduate programmes, it is important to keep an eye on the intake dates. These differ depending on the area of the company you are hoping to work in. The company have a dedicated careers website which describes the types of graduate careers, internships and apprenticeship programmes available. Here, you will also find their recruitment deadlines for new intakes.

BT are one of the world’s leading providers of innovative IT and communication services and with careers from retail and wholesale to design, technology and operations, there is a vast array of opportunity within the company. If you think you have got what it takes to continually learn new skills and put forward innovative ideas, too, why not take a look at the BT careers website now to see if there is a potential future career with the company waiting for you.
