BT have always been an organisation with purpose; to use the power of communications to make a better world. You can trace this back to their beginning as pioneers of the world’s first telecommunications company. At their heart they’re a technology company with research and innovation at their core and a desire to be personal, simple, and brilliant for their customers – those are the values BT live by whilst also creating an inclusive working environment where people from all backgrounds can succeed.
BT’s pursuit of progress over the past 180 years has established them as a strong, successful brand, with huge scale capable of achieving great things. From supporting emergency services, hospitals, banks and keeping economies around the world online, safe and secure, to delivering large scale technology infrastructure like the creation of BT Sport.
Today in this fast changing, always on, digital world their purpose remains true. Yet the market conditions, regulation and competition they face are tougher than ever before.
