BT having successfully won 100 percent of all superfast broadband contacts as part of the Government’s EU funded move to modernise the UK’s infrastructure, are creating 1,000 new jobs.

The telecoms giant’s investment in new staff is focused on supporting individuals who have recently entered the job market, as well as the unemployed, with 400 of the new positions being two year minimum apprenticeships, while 200 of the jobs will be aimed at ex armed service employees.

Prime minster David Cameron said: “I warmly welcome the announcement from BT. Working with business, the government is driving a transformation in UK broadband services and with an extra 100,000 homes and businesses gaining superfast broadband availability each week, this is already taking shape.”
