BT to host three-week work placement course for young people in Dundee

Phone giant BT will host a three-week work placement course for young people in Dundee in October.

The placements are open to people aged 16-24 who are not employed or enrolled on a training or education course.

Candidates will gain experience of what it is like in a real workplace working alongside senior BT staff.

As part of the course they will learn how to develop and build a CV while gaining experience of running a project from start to finish, working on their own and in a team.

It is hoped the scheme will allow applicants to gain a new-found confidence in the workplace.

The movement to work venture comes just a matter of days after BT announced it would be bringing more than 100 new jobs to the city.

BT already has a major call centre operation on West Bell Street in the city centre which employs about 1,100 staff.
