Farooq Hakim, BT’s regional director for the North East, said: “This is the perfect opportunity for someone looking for a secure, well-paid and flexible job with long term career prospects and excellent training in one of the UK’s top companies.
As part of the recruitment process the firm will be holding two open days on Wednesday March 30, 6.20-8.00pm and on Saturday April 2 between 2.20pm and 4.00pm.
This latest recruitment will expand BT’s involvement in the regeneration of South Tyneside, which is centered on the BT South Tyneside strategic partnership between BT and South Tyneside Council.
