BT to create 350 new jobs following multi-million pound South Yorkshire site revamp

Telecoms giant BT is set to create hundreds of new jobs following a multi-million pound revamp of its South Yorkshire base.

The firm has announced it is recruiting for 350 new roles following the completion of a refurbishment project at its Doncaster site.

The company’s centre in Wilmington Drive has undergone a major revamp in a bid to modernise the space for the incoming hires.

Following the refurb, the building now features a new café and restaurant facilities, flexible workspaces, collaboration areas, relax and refuel areas and a games area with table tennis, pool and games consoles.

Nick Lane, managing director for consumer customer services at BT, commented: “We’re really pleased to be creating new, permanent job opportunities in Doncaster, a town which has suffered economically due to the Covid-19 pandemic like many others across the country.

“It’s a great time to be joining our team at Doncaster, particularly following the exciting refurbishment of the site. It now boasts some of the latest technology and facilities to help our colleagues thrive at work and also relax and unwind during break periods.”

Deputy Mayor Cllr Glyn Jones, cabinet member for housing and business, added: “We are delighted to see BT investing in cutting edge facilities in Doncaster and creating hundreds of new jobs for local residents.

“It’s further tremendous news for the Doncaster economy which has seen a number of major companies announce expansion plans across our borough in recent months.

“We are fully committed to delivering jobs and growth and our Business Doncaster team continues to work closely with companies to promote opportunities and offer invaluable support.”
