BT is to recruit up 250 former armed forces personnel as engineers to support its national fibre optic broadband rollout.

The new employees will support BT's fibre broadband programme by installing the service in homes and businesses across the UK.

"Demand for fibre broadband is growing all the time and the engineers will help ensure the business keeps up with that demand," BT said.

BT Openreach started the second of four ten-day training programmes today (October 22nd), with additional courses due to run until early November.

It has already recruited more than 800 ex-military engineers and the current campaign will see that total rise to more than 1,000.

Liv Garfield, Chief Executive of Openreach, said: "We have had great success in recruiting talented people with armed forces experience in the past so we are delighted to be able to offer these roles to people who are set to leave the forces."
