We look after BT’s internal network which connects and provides phone, internet, data and TV services to millions of homes and businesses. The work we do happens in the thousands of exchanges, data centres, radio sites and EE sites across the UK.
We have six apprenticeships on offer in Engineering and all of them are advanced apprenticeships. This means you’ll work towards a Level 2 or 3 NVQ through work-based learning whilst also achieving functional skills, which often are supported by a knowledge-based qualification such as a BTEC.
Working as a Power Engineer you’ll develop the knowledge and skills needed to work safely on the electrical and mechanical power systems that provide power to BT’s large network. You could be:
- Learning how to maintain power supply and air conditioning in order for our critical equipment to work properly for our customers.
- Gaining skills to fix and maintain engines that keep our telephone exchanges, network equipment and data centres going in the event of a power failure.
- Working on the vital safety systems that protect our network such as our alarm systems.
Once you’ve completed your apprenticeship and training, you’ll become part of a team responsible for a number of telephone exchanges and data centres in your area of the country.
