We exist in a time of convergence in which the worlds of software and networks are merging. More and more, the networks of today are becoming software-centric and the boundaries between the two are disappearing, creating a need for a new set of skills. We need to grow and develop the capability of our people to drive cutting edge development and navigate this change.
BT is a global business, with over 105k employees. We operate at scale and are continually evolving and adapting. We cannot navigate this transformation by developing and retraining our colleagues alone, however. We need to bring in the best talent, we need to grow. We are looking, right now, at all levels of engineer and are actively recruiting to build out the capability we require – engineers who double in network development and software development equally.
While attracting this capability is integral to delivering our strategy, it will need to be nurtured as much as it is acquired. Whether through sponsored degrees with local universities, bespoke graduate programmes, and entry level opportunities, or whether it is through talented, experienced hires, our team is growing at pace. There has literally never been a better time to join BT.
