Apprentice - Software Engineering - Level 6 Digital and Technology Solutions Professional

You’re not just looking for a career, you’re looking to make a difference.

Millions of people rely on us every day to help them live their lives, power their businesses, and keep their public services running. We connect friends to family, clients to colleagues, people to possibilities. We keep the wheels of business spinning, and the emergency services responding. And we use the power of technology to help solve big challenges, like climate change and cyber security.

From day one, you’ll have a voice at BT Group. You’ll get stuck in to tough challenges, pitch in with ideas, make things happen. You won’t be alone: we’ll be there with help and support, learning and development. You’ll make great friends, discover new talents, and feel part of something exhilarating.

This is your chance to make a real difference to the world. Grab it.

About this role

We’re one of the world’s leading communications services companies. The services we sell are integral to modern life and are delivered over our networks. These networks are becoming ever increasingly dependent upon software, along with the products and services delivered over these networks. To continue innovating, we need you and your new ways of thinking to help us create amazing products for our customers. We’ll teach you human centred design, and agile ways of working, to help you create new technology and software solutions for the future.

We’ll get you started right away, learning some job specific skills such as analysis and design techniques you can use to break down problems. You will use these to build effective and secure software solutions, using contemporary software development languages and modern development methodologies and practices. We’ll teach you how to produce high quality code with sound syntax in at least one language and maybe more – the sky is your limit!

Day to day, you’ll work with our internal software development teams to create software solutions using industry standard build processes for our customers. You’ll also be contributing to code reviews, refactoring and debugging code and utilising test driven development practices.

You’ll learn how to deliver the very best software products, helping teams provide an effortless experience for our customers and staff wherever they are in the world, using whatever device and technology they choose.

This role is available in the Networks and Digital parts of our business.
