Plans for 160 engineer jobs are revealed

BT is to create 160 engineering jobs in Scotland as part of a drive to install new lines and fix faults more quickly.

They are among 1,600 new engineering jobs being created across the UK at Openreach, BT's local access network business.

The company said it expects a significant number of the engineering roles to be filled by ex-servicemen and women.

BT said in Scotland it is particularly keen to recruit in Aberdeen, Glasgow, Ayr, Newton Stewart, Ardrossan, Livingston, Perth, Inverness, Oban, Wick, Campbeltown, Portree and Dumfries.

Brendan Dick, BT Scotland director, said: "Not only are we building a superfast broadband network, which is giving a major boost to Scottish households and businesses, we are creating highly skilled jobs offering exciting careers, such as those announced today."
