Ann Beynon, BT's Director for Wales, is calling for more women to take up engineering. It comes as the firm announced it was creating up to 190 new engineering jobs.
They say they particularly want women to apply, but when asked how many they expected to take on, they admitted it would probably be less than 20:
I'd love it to be much more than that - but we need women to apply - and what happens is women don't even apply, they don't actually understand that these jobs are jobs they could be doing. When we get women they are brilliant, so it's obvious they are able to do the work but maybe that perception isn't there as it should be."
