Careers in BT TV

Join us transforming the industry, changing when and how the UK watches TV, as well as what’s on.

Powered by our world-class fibre network, our TV service is at the heart of our plans for the future. From catch-up and on-demand, to our pay-TV channels and our new TV Everywhere service for mobiles and tablets, we’re creating a new marketplace. Giving viewers more channels and unmissable content at affordable prices.

We have big ambitions – we’ve already signed up more than a million households (and counting). We’re growing all the time. So if you’ve got the vision and imagination to spot the next big thing, from must-see shows to game-changing technologies like digital home and mobile, there’s no better place to be right now.

Here is what Pawel, Head of digital retail – film and TV says about working in BT TV:

Pawel

"It isn’t all about press screenings and premieres and film set visits here at BT Store. OK, there’s a lot of that and, yes, it’s fun. Selling the latest and best film and TV rentals and buy-to-keep services you’ve got to know what’s coming up and what appeals.

I joined BT Vision (as it was known then) when it was just beginning as a production assistant. It was a risk. No-one else was doing what we were doing. I’d done film studies at uni and jumped at the chance to move into film scheduling. I’m really proud: that I’ve been able to work hard and prove myself, and that we’re seen as a top entertainment provider.

Working with the studios is just part of the job. I also budget, negotiate new and exclusive deals, and work with our legal, finance and marketing teams. Getting to grips with the technical things, like how customers use our app to download to their smartphone or tablet.

And presenting. Sometimes to hundreds of people. Convincing my bosses that brand new services no-one else in the industry is offering will be good for business. I get to speak at conferences about how the industry is changing, too.

Launching our buy-to-keep service was the most challenging thing I’ve done so far. People love it. Every month more and more sign up to watch whatever they want to wherever they are."
