Make your future part of ours
Starting your career with BT comes with serious bragging rights. Not only will you have loads of opportunities to learn and develop, you'll be working for one of the UK's biggest brands.
Superfast broadband. BT mobile. TV and HD sport. At BT, we entertain, educate and help millions of people to connect every day. We're the biggest telecoms provider in the UK. We're the only one to have our own fixed and mobile networks. Plus, we're leading the way in sport broadcasting and entertainment.
Apprenticeships - customer experience
As an apprentice, you'll learn all about our products and services so you can help customers choose packages that are right for them. You'll also find solutions for customers when things haven't gone according to plan. You'll learn to use your judgement and make the right calls for both customers and BT, and when you've made a promise to a customer, you'll always stick to your word.
We want our customer service to be the very best it can be, so we're looking for people who can build a personal connection with our customers. Whether that means filling pauses by chatting about sports teams or simply letting them know you understand their problem and you'll do your very best to help. It makes a big difference to customers. So, if you're gifted in the art of conversation, you'll fit right in.
Training and support
With our fantastic training and ongoing support, you'll not only learn the ropes but you'll develop personally as well:
Relating to customers - you'll already be a people person, a great listener and you'll only get better at this.
Using your time wisely - you'll learn to manage your time so that our customers aren't kept waiting and get the best service.
Keeping calm - customers might be upset or frustrated, but you won't let this get to you. You'll develop understanding, listening and how to diffuse difficult conversations.
Owning it - you'll know our systems inside-out so you can use your initiative to solve queries and keep our customers happy.
Create your own future
This really is just the beginning. You'll have a permanent job from day one, which includes all the benefits that all our customer advisors get as standard. You'll get a competitive salary, work towards a recognised qualification and you'll join our apprentice network where you'll get support from other apprentices around the business.
Once you complete your apprenticeship, you'll move into a customer advisor role and join our teams of experienced advisors where the support and training (and fun) will continue. After that, the world's your oyster. Many of our advisors have moved on into senior positions across BT in a huge variety of different business areas, so however you see your career developing, you can create your future here.
