Security summer placement

If you love solving problems then this placement could be just the thing to keep you busy this summer.

Working in our Security team you will help us to deliver solutions to combat threats against Critical National Infrastructure – the stuff that makes it possible for everyone in the country to go about their daily lives.

Our 12 week paid summer internship is a hugely exciting and rewarding opportunity to work with cutting edge new technology, to drive our innovation programme. You will learn about our technical challenges and gain an insight into how to develop a wide range of predominantly software based solutions and the different roles that contribute to successful delivery. You will learn from our experienced software, systems, network and security engineers; and learn more about BT in the process.

The placement is project based so you will join a dedicated team to research and develop innovation-led prototype applications or services, on the very latest technologies. You will have responsibility for the project delivery: to design and develop a solution and take the research in the direction you decide; under guidance and with mentoring from a project lead, so we’ll help you every step of the way. You will also have the opportunity to develop your presentation skills by demonstrating the project outcomes to internal customers and our technical community.

You will have a buddy and mentor throughout the programme; and have many opportunities to network and ask questions to understand what working at BT and the industry is like.

We have roles based in Ipswich and Cheltenham. You must be studying a suitable technically focussed degree, as the projects will require ‘Software’ and ‘Networks’ roles (we use the generic role called ‘Networks’ to cover the Networking, Systems Integration and Security Engineering skills that we require to work alongside the ‘Software’ engineers to deliver our projects).

Through the recruitment process we will work with you to decide which of these options will be the best fit for you as an individual and open your eyes to the sheer breadth and depth of our delivery projects. This will not only make your time with us more enjoyable but will also prepare you for your future career in IT.
