Aims to Recruit 40+ Sales People and 20+ Apprentices

LONDON, May 18, 2011 - BT Engage IT, the IT services division of BT, has embarked on
its biggest recruitment drive to date, and is looking to employ more than 40
IT sales professionals in the next six months, as the initial phase to
support its three-year growth plan. It has also launched its own
apprenticeship scheme, which will take around 20 apprentices this year.

The recruitment programme, led by BT Engage IT's HR director
David Biggs, is an integral part of the company's growth across its IT
product, professional and managed services, and support businesses.

Working in partnership with Claremont Consulting, a specialist
IT recruitment company, BT Engage IT is recruiting for a range of job
functions across its business, including consultants, account managers and
account directors who are specialists in specific disciplines.

The BT Engage IT apprenticeship scheme, which has been
developed as part of the wider BT Group programme, and in conjunction with
HTI (Heads, Teachers & Industry), will aim to recruit more than 20 school
leavers this year and between 30 and 40 in subsequent years.

The programme, which works with apprentices for up to three
years, provides training and assessment for an NVQ level three qualification
in a range of IT-related disciplines at BT Engage IT's facilities in
Barlborough, Derbyshire, and Letchworth Garden City, Hertfordshire. The aim
is to equip apprentices with the skills they need to build a long career in

Martin Balaam, managing director at BT Engage IT, said: "We're
at a really exciting time for the business, and have set ourselves some
ambitious targets. Our move to recruit a large number of industry specialists
has created a stir in the market - and will help us drive sales and increase
our market share."

David Biggs, HR director at BT Engage IT, added: "A lot of our
customer feedback talks about the quality of our people, and that's what sets
us aside from the competition. That's why this recruitment programme is so
important: getting the right people is integral to our growth strategy, but
also for ensuring we provide the level of service the industry demands and
our customers have come to expect."
