UK nations & regions
BT has offices across Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the English regions, providing insight into the issues that impact on organisations and people at a local level. BT is uniquely positioned to work in partnership across the Group, to design solutions to meet the challenges and opportunities of geographies across the UK.
BT supports some 259,000 jobs across the UK through direct employment, spending with contractors and suppliers and the spending of employees – equivalent to one in every 95 employees working in the UK. The overall impact of BT’s activities, expressed as a “Gross Value Added” (GVA) contribution is £23.1 billion – equivalent to £1 in every £70 of the UK’s total GVA.
As well as direct employment and investment, BT provides significant support to business organisations, nurtures technology companies in their early stages and collaborates with universities and other institutions. BT also provides funding and in-kind support to charities, local community organisations, and grassroots sports. We’re creating a culture of volunteering with 39% of our people giving more than 37,000 days of their time to support charitable organisations across the UK.
The breadth of our work spans across the UK and examples of our activities in the nations and regions can be found on a dedicated part of the BT website.
