BT Graduates
We offer graduate programmes – either fixed role based or on a rotation basis where graduates get to experience a range of roles throughout the programme. All schemes include fantastic training and personal development opportunities. The 2021 programme has now closed, but you can register your interest in our exciting 2022 programme and our recruitment will begin in the early Autumn.
BT Apprentices
At Adastral Park BT offers apprenticeship programmes including full BSc Honours degree apprenticeships as well as others where you can get further qualifications as part of the Digital apprenticeship programmes. For Applied Research you need to apply for Digital & Technology Solutions Level 6 – Data Analyst role in the research team. There are also network, software developer and other Digital apprenticeships offered - but not all may be at Adastral Park.
