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.

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.
What you’ll be doing
We’re one of the world’s leading communications services companies. The services we sell are integral to modern life and are delivered over our networks. These networks are becoming ever increasingly dependent upon software, along with the products and services delivered over these networks. To continue innovating, we need you and your new ways of thinking to help us create amazing products for our customers. We’ll teach you human centred design, and agile ways of working, to help you create new technology and software solutions for the future.
We’ll get you started right away, learning some job specific skills such as analysis and design techniques you can use to break down problems. You will use these to build effective and secure software solutions, using contemporary software development languages and modern development methodologies and practices. We’ll teach you how to produce high quality code with sound syntax in at least one language and maybe more – the sky is your limit!
Day to day, you’ll work with our internal software development teams to create software solutions using industry standard build processes for our customers. You’ll also be contributing to code reviews, refactoring and debugging code and utilising test driven development practices.
You’ll learn how to deliver the very best software products, helping teams provide an effortless experience for our customers and staff wherever they are in the world, using whatever device and technology they choose.
This role is available in the Networks and Digital parts of our business.
About the apprenticeship you’ll be studying for
As a Degree Apprentice Software Engineer, you’ll study for a Level 6 Digital & Technology Solutions Professional apprenticeship with Software Engineering specialism. This is an apprenticeship degree course and on successful completion, you’ll receive a degree from one of our university partners (completion is required to retain the role).
The degree course runs for four 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 achieve three A-Levels grades with grades BBC or above. You’ll also need five GCSE’s at grades 4-9 (C or above), including English Language and Maths. Equivalent qualifications are accepted.
Due to the nature of the work involved some of our Software Engineering roles (but not all) require satisfactory completion and maintenance of appropriate security clearance.
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.
