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


Our security team has the expertise to deal with up to 4,000 cyber-attacks every day. With over 5,500 global customers, our work has a real impact all around the world. BT’s award-winning apprenticeship programme offers you the opportunity to gain qualifications, hands-on experience as well as personal and professional development.


You’ll join a specialist security, mission focused team that is a trusted partner to Governments worldwide, protecting critical national infrastructure and committed to the safety and security of our nation and global communities.  As an Apprentice Sales Specialist, you’ll work to sell our products and services to our UK Government customers, working with our management teams on small opportunities, and with our innovation teams for larger opportunities to design, price and sell global security solutions.


With exposure to so many different aspects of sales, you’ll be able to find out what you like, and what you don’t. You’ll also learn lots of new skills, from managing customers and internal stakeholders, to negotiation, building rapport, and how to harness that entrepreneurial spirit. With all your new skills, you’ll be able to take your sales career in any direction you choose.


This job is available in the Global part of our business.


Because of the sensitive nature of the high security work, you will be doing, you will need to go through additional personnel screening and Government DV Security clearance.


An allowance of £5k per annum made payable monthly may be paid while you hold DV and continue to work in a role that requires DV. The terms of this allowance will be made available if you are successful in being recruited for this role.


About the apprenticeship you'll study for


As an Apprentice Sales Specialist, you’ll study for a Level 6 apprenticeship in Business-to-Business Sales. This is an apprenticeship degree course, meaning if you complete the course successfully, you’ll receive a degree from one of our partner universities.


The degree course runs for three years and is a work-based learning degree.


You’ll spend a minimum of 20% of your time learning and studying. You’ll need to complete one “study work” day a week.


Entry Requirements


You’ll need to achieve (or be on course to achieve) three A-Levels with a minimum of BCC grades. You’ll also need a minimum of four GCSEs at grades 4-9 (C or above) including English and Maths. Equivalent qualifications are accepted.
