BT are at the forefront of innovation and technology. The digital and physical worlds are blurring, and the pace of change keeps increasing. With the best networks and smart innovative products, the quality of our technology sets BT apart from the pack. It’s the powerhouse of everything we do and has a unique position in the business, bringing together technical and commercial expertise with insight and passion for customer experience.

Whether you’re looking at future innovation, defining strategy, protecting customers through security, or working with teams across BT to develop new products, tools and systems – or maintain current ones – there are countless challenges to tackle and opportunities to develop during our programme.

This programme focuses on building a broad future skill-set for our graduates, and to achieve this you’ll gain skills and knowledge across the Technology life-cycle which will include designing, testing and operating our systems which are used to deliver vital services to our customers, who vary from large, multinational corporations to individuals using our products and services at home. You will develop by working on voice (fixed or mobile), TV, content delivery, mobility or security and you’ll have the opportunity to develop knowledge of the software lifecycle and put it into practice within the Technology division; making a real contribution to BT’s business success.

Across these business areas you will be developing & bringing to life methodologies in an agile & human centred environment.

You’ll need to demonstrate your passion for technology, and you’ll also need the ability to be able to translate complex ideas to our customers and the business acumen to see valuable opportunities when they arise.

If you don’t have a computer science background, don’t worry we have a comprehensive suite of training and support in place to help you develop the skills required within your given role. We’ll always give you the training and development you need to succeed.
