ReEngage with BT
BT is delighted to introduce its first ever Career Returner programme – BT’s ReEngage programme in partnership with Women Returners. BT is looking to support experienced professionals of all genders keen to return to work and develop their skills after a career break of 18 months or more, as part of the commitment to inclusion contained in its BT Group Manifesto
So how will the ReEngage programme work at BT……
BT is offering 6-month paid roles in its Technology (Networks) division, with specialised support and coaching from Women Returners to help you to step back into work and the workplace. In addition you will have access to the training and learning opportunities available to all BT employees and have both a mentor and a buddy from BT Networks to support you over the course of the programme. BT is also creating a specialised supported programme of learning to give you access and insights into the people and organisation, as part of its commitment to you personally and BT’s overall purpose of connecting for good.
The role will provide you with a fantastic opportunity to showcase your energy and motivation, to refresh your skills and experience and to add new areas of work and new skills to your CV. Successful candidates on the programme will be very likely to be offered a permanent role with BT.
What do you need to be eligible for the programme…..
You will be an experienced professional who has been on a career break for at least 18 months (as at September 2022). During this time you may have done no paid work or some small amounts of work around other commitments. BT requires you to have the right to work in the UK to be eligible for this programme.

More about BT…….
BT has a key role in British society, fostering change and leading technology innovation. From delivering the Olympics, to supporting the emergency services, to investing more into research than any other UK technology company, they take pride in everything they do – and in the people who work there.
BT is now a global company operating at the forefront of the information age, employing 90,000 people in 180 countries. And they’re on a mission. Guided by their core values of Personal, Simple and Brilliant their goal is to help customers, communities and businesses overcome barriers and release their potential.
The one thing the pandemic has taught us is that a lot of current and future colleagues, where and when possible, want to embrace hybrid working. Therefore, they are introducing smart working at BT. Smart working means having the flexibility to choose, as a team, how and where you work depending on your team’s deliverables and needs; when you are at your shared core location to connect with others and when not. As part of the recruitment process, you’ll have the chance to discuss smart working and how it might work for the role you are applying for. To find out more see Careers | BT Plc
