Engineering

Engineering careers at BT are uniquely challenging, rewarding and diverse and are focused on providing a great service for our customers.

As an Engineering apprentice at BT you will be joining a team of experienced engineers who will support and teach you the skills required to be successful in your apprenticeship role.

We have a variety of engineering apprenticeships including field and desk based roles. As an engineer, you may diagnose and fix faults on customer lines, work on and maintain the IP Networks, or even support BT's internal power network. This includes maintenance of power equipment such as high powered generator engines, air conditioning units and other electrical safety systems that power the telephone exchange equipment. You may be in a role that requires you to provide a safety testing and repair service to our customers to make sure our equipment meet the legal obligations under Health and Safety legislation. As a desk based engineer you would work to ensure customers broadband, Ethernet and voice orders get delivered on-time and fixed quickly if required.

The Engineering roles are both varied and interesting and offer a great opportunity for you to develop you skills and your career.

If you're the type of person who likes problem solving and is passionate about customer service, then we want you to apply. We're ready to provide you with a world class training experience. You just need to be customer focused, and be willing to get stuck in.
