Consumer (BT, EE, PlusNet) Strategy Team - St Paul's, London

Why this role matters

Working in strategy means you'll be at the very heart of helping decide what the BT of tomorrow will look like. We are an internal task force of consultants looking for new investments to help our business grow.

We pitch ideas and seek support on multi-million pound projects covering every area of our business : from TV, Sport and broadband to mobility.

We look at all aspects too, from listening to what our customers want right through to agreeing the investment decision.

We gauge the impact they’ll have and advise on everything, from sales and service to finance and regulatory.

Two of our biggest projects have been the auctions for the English Premier League and UEFA Champions League sports rights.

Each time it’s like launching a multi-million pound start-up business with all the deadlines, pressure and reward that goes with that.

We have to become experts in whatever we’re working on very quickly.

Our Strategy teams work across the BT, EE ad Plusnet brands; so you have the chance to work on a real breadth of projects.
