Software Engineering Industrial Placement

Job description

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

Are you interested in being part of a team that turns cutting edge concepts into a reality? What about developing software systems that impact customers globally?

On our software industrial placement, we’ll be getting you stuck into real life projects from day one, learning to work with the latest technologies. You could be learning languages like Python, Objective – C or Java, or you could be working on cloud platforms such as Azure, AWS and Google Cloud. You’ll need to be innovative and creative, working with our experts to create a real software solution for our customers. That new piece of software you help work on could go on to be a vital part of people’s day to day life!

You’ll get the chance to explore the full software development lifecycle, and find out what you like, and what you don’t. With such a wide range of projects on the go, from creating solutions for small businesses to nationwide government roll-outs, you can be sure your project will give you unique knowledge that you’ll be able to take back to university with you, and into your career beyond.

This placement is available in the Digital part of our business.
