So everyone’s heard of us. We’re a broadband and phone company, right? But we bet you didn’t know that we’re involved in a lot more than just that. 

Millions of people rely on our services every day without realising. The NHS, emergency services, air traffic control, contactless payments in shops and banks – they’d all grind to a halt without our services, technology and innovations. Did you know we defend against over 40,000 cyber-attacks a day? Or file over 100 patents for our inventions every year? Or that we’re one of the biggest investors in Research and Development in the country? 

Oh, and we don’t just do this in the UK; we do it in 180 countries around the world. 

To be honest, we don’t like to go on about what we’ve done in the past. We’re much more interested in the future. And that’s why we need you to come and join us.

Who are we looking for?

We’re looking for people who want to make a difference. People who want to pitch in. People who want to go places in their career. 

We’re the UK’s number one private sector apprentice programme. Join us as an apprentice and you’ll get hands-on experience in one of the world’s leading tech companies. Our apprentices don’t just make coffee; they learn skills and win awards. They build brilliant careers.  And they do amazing things along the way.

From Day 1, you’ll be playing a crucial part in keeping the country connected. Without us you wouldn’t be able to use the internet. Message your friends, order a cab. Stream TV shows.

If you like the sound of us, you’ll be pretty chuffed to learn you can train for pretty much any job through our apprenticeships scheme (aka a job with training).

As a BT apprentice, you’ll be an essential part of our business. You’ll be doing a real role, taking on responsibility and learning new skills from day one. Working alongside experienced colleagues, you’ll gain a wealth of experience as well as job specific skills. We’ll pay you a salary whilst you’re working towards a nationally recognised apprenticeship.

Once you’ve completed your apprenticeship, we’ll give you a permanent job with us.

In a nutshell, the main benefit of an apprenticeship is that you earn as you learn.
