We are BT
As the fourth most valuable brand in the UK, we’re here to harness the power of communications to make a better world.
Our Culture - What we do
Life today is built around connectivity. Through an ever-expanding range of products and services, we provide broadband, mobile and TV to customers in 180 countries.
Through us, millions of people connect with friends and family, share huge amounts of information and enjoy a world of entertainment at their fingertips.
In the UK, the entire telecoms industry operates across our networks, whilst our technology powers international establishments such as the New York Stock Exchange.
Founded in 1846, we are the longest established communication company in the world. Back then, the goal was to make communication possible within minutes and hours, instead of days and weeks.
We’ve come a long way since. Today, we work in global offices, stretching from Sao Paolo to Sydney. We’re now the fourth most valuable brand in the UK and 58th in the world, and we have exciting plans to keep growing.
Our BT Academy provides structured, tailored training to our graduates that is based on the world’s best thinking.
This enables our team to continue their own professional development by studying towards accredited qualifications alongside their training.
With a focus on personal development as well as professional training, every employee has an allowance of holiday per year to spend on volunteering activities for a cause of their choice.
At BT we have one of the largest corporate property estates in the UK, including offices, data centres, telephone exchanges, distribution warehouses as well as shops. We also have our own TV studio, a TV platform and as of 2016 have joined with EE, which is the UK’s largest mobile phone company.
With such a large company, the social network here is truly exceptional. Take part in the "Gradiator" challenge across the Peak District, join our annual ski trip or take part in regular events such as the monthly pub quiz. Our weekly graduate newsletter will keep you posted with all activities open to you, so you're never left out of the loop.
There’s a really great opportunity for a huge social network across BT.
At BT you can be yourself...[We aim] to help you be better, not to change you to something that you are not.

Our Future - Where we're going
Steve Cunningham, Leadership, Learning and Talent Director
We are a company with a huge history and heritage. We were founded in 1846 and over the years have remained a leader and an innovator in the telecommunications and technology sector.
We have three values: being personal, simple and brilliant. Right now, there's a lot of exciting work taking place on integrating these values into everything we do, for the benefit of both our employees across BT and our global network of customers.
The future of BT is bright – we aim to be at the forefront of what people want from us for many years to come. As a graduate, we are looking for you to not only understand the business as it is now, but to re-imagine how it can be in the future and how to make that happen.
Graduates are a hugely important way of resourcing the organisation, providing fresh new ideas and creating an essential pipeline of leaders for the future. There are countless examples of those who started on the grad scheme and are now occupying senior roles within BT - you could be next.
