BT recruiting 1600 new engineers

BT recently announced plans for a major recruitment drive across the UK, with 1600 new engineering jobs being created at Openreach, BT’s local access network business. The new engineers will help Openreach to continue to improve customer service as it strives to install new lines and fix faults more quickly.

The business expects a significant number of the engineering roles to be taken up by ex-service men and women, continuing the company’s long-standing relationship with the UK Armed Forces. Openreach is also particularly keen to recruit more female engineers and has launched a campaign encouraging women to enter the world of engineering.

Millions of customers depend on broadband and in many cases they rely on BT to keep them connected, whatever the weather. Our engineers have been rolling out fibre broadband faster than anywhere else in the world, and at the same time completing hundreds of thousands of jobs each week to keep people connected throughout the UK but BT knows it must do even more for customers.

BT has a long-standing relationship with the UK Armed Forces, and some of the latest group of new recruits will join through its well-established Civilian Work Attachment scheme. This helps to facilitate a smooth transition from the Forces into the civilian workplace.
