Why BT?

We’ve always been an organisation with purpose; to use the power of communications to make a better world. You can trace this back to our beginning as pioneers of the world’s first telecommunications company. At our heart we’re a technology company with research and innovation in our bones and a desire to be personal, simple, and brilliant for our customers - those are the values we live by whilst also creating an inclusive working environment where people from all backgrounds can succeed.

Our pursuit of progress over the past 180 years has established BT as a strong, successful brand, with huge scale capable of achieving great things. From supporting emergency services, hospitals, banks and keeping economies around the world online, safe and secure, to delivering large scale technology infrastructure like the creation of BT Sport.

Today in this fast changing, always on, digital world our purpose remains true. Yet the market conditions, regulation and competition we face are tougher than ever before. So if you have the drive, optimism and resilience to help propel us forward we’ll offer unrivalled personal development, a wealth of opportunities to learn, experience new things and pursue new careers. If that’s you and what you’re looking for, we’d love you to be part of our future.

Why Business Unit/Function

The Consumer Customer Facing Unit (CFU) delivers over £10bn of revenue and £2.4bn of EBITDA for BT Group. The CFU has three consumer brands; EE, BT and Plusnet – and numerous product lines including Landline, Broadband, Mobile, TV and Sport.

The function provides insightful reporting, analysis and business partnering that is integral to optimising decision making and delivering value for shareholders.

Consumer Financial Controlling plays a key role within Consumer Finance, ensuring the accurate accounting for both the EE & BT brands. We don’t just focus on the financials though, we look after the control environment to ensure Consumer is fully compliant with Group policies and accounting standards, empowering its people to take ownership and drive processes forward.
