BT Cornwall recruits five apprentices

BT Cornwall has recruited five new apprentices to fill a one year training programme covering a range of business administrations areas.

The programme, run in partnership with Truro and Penwith College, will see recruits working across project management, telehealthcare and payroll.

The apprentices will work with BT Cornwall to achieve a range of nationally recognised qualifications.

One of the five new recruits, Emmi Atkinson, from Camborne, said: “When I saw the application online to become a project manager for BT I applied instantly, as I’ve always wanted to be part of a project management team and this was the first step. College wasn’t for me and I wanted to earn money while learning. Since starting I’ve already gained a lot of insight and knowledge into the job and what’s expected, and it’s a great experience.”

Tamsyn Harris, head of Truro and Penwith College, said: “As businesses develop and grow and technology changes, new skills are needed within those businesses – which is why we as a college are pleased to be working with BT Cornwall. BT offers a great opportunity for recent students looking to move into their first job. The training will be provided by the College, supporting these new members of the team to grow and develop in their roles and contribute to this important business.”
