What does it involve?

If you’re keen to build a rewarding career in Sales, we’ll give you the support you need to make a success of it from day one. At BT you can spend time exploring different roles, to find what best fits you. It’s all about making sure you have the best platform for success.

There are two key areas within Sales: Account Management and Business Operations.

Account Management is at the heart of great customer relationships. We offer a wide range of roles, tailored to different types of customer and market segments. Some roles are about growing our relationship with existing customers. Others focus on nurturing new opportunities. As well as forging strong relationships with customers, you’ll make valuable connections with colleagues across BT, in areas such as Marketing and Customer Service.

Business Operations is a crucial aspect of Sales. It’s where we work on driving up the profitability of our business - while ensuring we never compromise on quality and reliability. In a competitive market like ours, it’s vital to work in agile ways, and to provide accurate and intelligent forecasts and analysis. In Business Operations, you’ll really hone your commercial skills.

So what do I need?

Two qualities are absolutely essential to succeed in Sales at BT. Firstly, you’ll thrive on building great relationships, and be committed to keeping the customer at the heart of your thinking. Secondly, you have the commercial savvy to turn those great relationships into great business, by taking responsibility for delivering results that make a difference for our customer and our organisation. All of this will take tenacity and resilience, plus a flair for interpreting data and making sharp decisions in an ever-changing environment.
