Company Values

Values shape our culture. They help guide our decisions at every level. They define how we work every day. In short, they show us the right thing to do.rnrnWe've thought long and hard about what makes us unique. How we've changed already, and what we want to be in the future. And we didn't develop our new values in a dark room. We asked our customers what they thought. We asked colleagues right across our organisation too. rnrnWe all wanted values that were aspirational, but realistic u2013 things that captured the spirit of BT at its best. rnOur customers wanted us to understand their needs, be easy to deal with and show we care. rn

Customer Care Apprentice – Class of 2018

I wasn't too happy with my GCSE results and it left me unsure as what to do next. I knew that the classroom environment wasn't for me, but wasn't quite sure who to talk to or where to look next. After spending a few years working jobs that didn't challenge me or offer a chance to progress, I was lucky to have the Princes' Trust point me in the direction of the BT Apprenticeship Scheme. After applying I became an apprentice in February of this year.

After training, I now work as a Customer Service advisor in BT Consumer where I'm the first point of contact for our customers. I've become skilled in dealing with tons of different enquiries, it certainly keeps each day interesting! Best of all, it's really rewarding to have positive experiences with our customers knowing I've helped them.

I can't say enough about the positive environment I've found myself in. My team are great, and there's a never ending list of opportunities and training available. In a few short months, I've travelled the country to different offices, met other apprentices, found a mentor and even spoken at events about the benefits of apprenticeships.

Looking back, I wish I had chosen the apprenticeship route sooner. It's a perfect way to get the best of both worlds as you have time to not only work and learn but to also consider your future and ambitions. Personally, when I joined I had hoped to eventually become a team manager but only after a few years
