Chief Executive: 'BT has an exciting future ahead of it'

BT have announced plans today to create 50 new apprenticeship and graduate jobs in Wales.

This is a tough time in the job market, with almost a million young people across the UK struggling to find work. Every company needs to play its part in ensuring that Britain's workforce isn't impaired by long term unemployment.

BT has an exciting future ahead of it, investing in the UK's high speed broadband infrastructure, and advances in television and digital media. Through new apprenticeships, graduate training and the Movement to Work programme, we want thousands of young people in Britain to share this future.

The company says it's casting its net across the UK for 300 top science, technology and business graduates who want to build their careers in the IT and Telecom sector.

Around 730 apprenticeships will also be offered to UK school and college leavers in the areas of engineering, software design, IT support, finance and logistics.

The company has also launched a new digital media technology apprenticeship that will provide new recruits with experience and skills in web development, digital networks, digital TV and digital media distribution.
