BT Group has today announced plans to recruit more than 500 apprentices and graduates for its September 2024 intake.
The company will recruit talent into the company across areas as diverse as software engineering, customer service, applied research, data analytics and cyber-security to support the UK’s fast-growing digital sectors.
The new roles are spread across a number of state-of-the-art offices which form part of BT Group’s Better Workplace Programme– the largest workplace improvement programme and consolidation scheme of its type ever undertaken in the UK. Locations include Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Darlington, Ipswich, Leeds, London, Manchester, Sheffield and Warrington.
BT Group is one of the UK’s largest private sector apprenticeship employers and has recruited more than 3,000 apprentices and graduates over the past five years. The company offers apprenticeships ranging from level two, the equivalent to GCSE standard through to level seven, a master’s degree.
In 2023, BT Group was ranked second in the Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers in the UK and as part of its Manifesto for responsible, inclusive, and sustainable growth the company has pledged to build a more diverse talent pool.
Elaine Bergin, Director of Colleague Experience, BT Group said: “As one of the largest private sector employers of apprentices and graduates in the UK, we continue to recruit and attract brilliant people into our business and we offer unparalleled opportunities to those who join us.
“As we build a better BT Group, we’re developing a pipeline of future talent to help grow our business, deliver great outcomes for our customers and to help underpin economic growth in the UK.”
