Corporate Affairs

We’re here to build, and help others to build, the reputations that BT needs to succeed in the short and long term. It's an important job that puts us at the heart of the company's future. A career with us could take you into media relations, internal communications or public affairs. 

  • BT’s External Communications function is made up of small teams in every part of our diverse business. Much of what we do is media relations – telling BT’s story through traditional and social media. But our role goes beyond that to other outward-facing communications from conference speeches to liaison with groups representing our customers.

    In any one day part of the team could be promoting EE’s sponsorship of the BAFTAs or working with BT Sport to campaign against racism in football, whilst others are publicising new industry applications of 5G or other cutting edge technologies. At the same time as we support the business right across the world, we’re also handling corporate issues from financial results to explaining BT’s stance on the issues of the day.

    We’re a mixed team from all sorts of backgrounds. We’re looking for strong writing skills and great judgement but that’s all – nobody is born a comms person and we believe anyone can become one.

  • Our mission in internal communications is to build a community of advocates, confident in the future of BT. Between our 70+ strong team of internal communicators sitting within Corporate Affairs and each of our business units, we see and hear pretty much everything that goes on across the business putting us in a unique, vital, and exciting position.

    The scope of work we undertake is huge – from shaping our company strategy and story; driving colleague experience improvements for our 100,000+ colleagues; advising senior stakeholders on how best to communicate to their teams; to running company-wide campaigns to promote our latest products, initiatives and priorities, and much, much more.

    If you want to be part of a team that genuinely impacts how it feels to work at BT, then internal communications could be the right home for you.

  • BT’s Policy and Public Affairs team aims to influence government policymaking and sustain BT’s reputation with political audiences. We look to identify and manage any potential risks to BT’s success from political intervention.

    At any one time we might be talking to MPs about how they can help accelerate our fibre rollout, working with a think tank to develop proposals to reduce digital inclusion, or advising the Government on the international trade priorities for UK digital companies.

    We have people BTs HQ in London, as well as locations across the Scotland, Wales, the regions of England, Brussels and Washington DC.

  • BT’s Digital Impact and Sustainability team drive and deliver the strategy, develop programmes and support the business to help people thrive in the digital world, tackle climate change and environmental challenges, and champion human rights and responsible technology.

    Being a responsible and sustainable business shows up in the way we work, our business strategy and the policies we use every day. We work with BT’s business units to deliver a wide range of campaigns and partnerships which, at their heart, help BT deliver its purpose 'we connect for good'. This can range from helping people to develop basic digital skills and stay connected, supporting young people into the job market, assisting SMEs to run and grow a successful business online, through to working with colleagues and customers to reduce energy consumption, and creating environmentally friendly products and services. We also support charities and local communities, and we work to ensure BT provides its customers with ethical and responsible products and services, starting with our supply chain all the way through to the end product.

    As a team we’re mostly located across the UK, with colleagues also located in India, our largest market beyond the UK. 

  • The transformation, planning and reporting teams mission is to drive the ongoing performance and improvement of the Corporate Affairs function . The team is spread across multiple disciplines but the core mission is to help transform and simplify Corporate Affairs to become a world class and effective function.

    We refresh and create a clear, coherent strategy, bringing order and cohesiveness to campaign planning in Corporate Affairs ; ensuring a clear and consistent narrative for BT and the positions taken on a wide range of issues; and ensuring the best use of insight and measurement to guide what we do and to track performance against agreed KPIs. We report and oversee strategy, reporting and governance with the digital impact and sustainability team. We have a small production team to manage the distribution of important corporate news both internally and externally on bt.com/about.
