Careers with BT


Join one of the world's leading
communications companies

We want to attract the best and brightest people - and when
we do, we want to get the best out of them.

Why Join BT?

Something for everyone

People join us for many different reasons - it all depends on what they're looking for.

For some, it's because they want a chance to shape the future, and drive forward a new era of change.

For others, it's because of the way that we look after our people, and encourage them to get the best out of themselves.

Or maybe, because they want a foundation of technical training and experience that will open doors throughout the industry.

Or simply because they like helping people get the very best out of today's communications technology.

Whatever your reasons, we'd like to add to them.

Work-life balance

A more flexible approach

If you work for BT, we believe you should be able to enjoy the physical and mental benefits of a healthy work-life balance. Which is why we actively encourage flexible working.

By working in partnership with each other, thousands of our people have already established alternative working arrangements that are making our business more productive, cost effective and energised.

We fully understand that many people have talents and interests outside work. In achieving their desired work-life balance, most people discover not only renewed energy, but new enthusiasm and reward in their work and their other commitments.


A more rewarding place to be

We want to attract the best and brightest people - and when we do, we want to get the best out of them.

We believe that if you're worth employing, you're worth looking after. That's why we go out of our way to offer all our employees a range of benefits that reflect the full value of their skills, experience and qualifications.

As you grow and develop, your benefits and bonuses will grow with you. What shape they take all depends on what direction your career takes. (More detail about benefits applicable to you will be shared during the recruitment process).

Personal development

Tap into your star potential

It's absolutely in our interests that you have every chance to achieve your full potential. That's why at BT, opportunities to grow and develop don't just come along at the beginning - they're a feature of your entire career.

From the word go, you'll have your own Development Action Plan, specially tailored to help you succeed in your job and progress in your career.

Added to that, we have coaching, networking, mentoring, knowledge-sharing and 'buddy' programmes to give you all the help and guidance you need. You will also have time set aside with your manager, to ensure you get regular feedback on your progress. It's a company-wide commitment to learning that has earned us accreditation as an Investor In People.

Further to this, we provide opportunities that will stretch you personally and professionally, and prepare you for more responsibility.

In an organisation as big and complex as this, there's a host of different opportunities on offer. Of course, it's up to you to make the most of them. But once you set your direction, we'll give you all the internal coaching, external training and practical support we can.

Our promise to you

100% committed to your career

We know you don't make career decisions lightly. So if you decide to apply to us, we pledge:

  • To do our very best to ensure you have a healthy work / life balance.
  • To value your contribution from day one, and reward your skills, growth and development accordingly.
