BT recruiting 250 engineers from ex-forces

BT is to recruit another 250 engineers from among retired Armed Forces personnel.

The firm has already taken on 800 people who have left the services, as it rolls out its fibre broadband programme in homes and businesses across the country.

Liv Garfield, chief executive of BT Openreach, said: "We have had great success in recruiting talented people with Armed Forces experience in the past so we are delighted to be able to offer these roles to people who are set to leave the forces.

"Past recruits have brought great enthusiasm and professionalism with them and I have no doubt the new recruits will as well. Fibre will help to spur economic growth and these recruits will be helping to power and drive that recovery."

Mark Francois, Minister for Defence Personnel, Welfare and Veterans, said: "The MoD has a great relationship with BT, with more than 800 service-leavers having already taken up posts there, so it is fantastic news that a further 250 posts have been announced today."
