Industrial Placement - Dynamic Infrastructure

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 at the forefront of ground-breaking technology. Our networks and systems are world leading, smart and innovative products. But we can only stay at the front of the pack but constantly innovating and working on the next big thing.  Whether you’re looking at future innovation, defining strategy, protecting customers through security, or working with teams across BT to develop new products, tools and systems – or maintain current ones – there are countless challenges to tackle and opportunities to develop during our programme. 


No matter exactly which project you work on, you’ll be developing & bringing to life methodologies in an agile & human centred environment. We’ll also help you work on your soft skills, such as managing and working with stakeholders across the business. And on top of that, we’ll help you see things from a commercial perspective, so you see valuable opportunities when they arise, as well as talk our customers through them in a way which is simple to understand.


You’ll need to demonstrate your passion for technology, but it’s not all just about being technical.  We have systems and tools in place to help you develop your skills, and we’ll also continue to give you the training and development you need to make sure you’ve got the skills and knowledge to succeed.  


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


Our industrial placements start in September and end in July



Entry requirements

You should be in the penultimate year of a relevant STEM undergraduate degree course and on track to achieve a minimum 2.1.

About BT

BT Group is the global powerhouse behind EE, BT, Plusnet, and Openreach.


We value diversity and celebrate difference. We’ll encourage you to be yourself, whatever your background. As Philip Jansen, our CEO, says ‘We embed diversity and inclusion into everything that we do. It’s fundamental to our purpose: we connect for good.’


Whichever brand you’re working for, we’re all playing for the same team. And we all enjoy the rewards of being part of something bigger: the opportunities to explore new experiences, pursue different dreams, climb challenging career ladders, and try out different ways of working.


We’re always looking ahead. We don’t just sell broadband, and networks, and security, and thousands of clever things you’ve never heard of; in our Martlesham labs, we’re inventing the technologies of the future.


Four brands. One team, 100,000 strong. Together, we’re connecting the world. Come and play your part in building the BT Group of the future, one that will be net zero by 2030.
