NORTH Wales is set to benefit from a BT initiative to create 190 new engineering jobs nationwide.

This latest intake of jobs is set to improve customer service and bring high-speed fibre broadband to a wider audience.

The company keen to recruit in places such as Rhyl, Caernarfon, Bethesda, Wrexham and Llanberis in the hope that they can add to the 19 million UK homes and businesses BT currently provide with fibre broadband.

Ann Beynon, BT director for Wales, said: “Not only are we building a superfast broadband network, which is giving a major boost to Welsh households and businesses, we are creating highly skilled local jobs offering exciting careers, such as those announced today.

"Exciting times lie ahead for both BT and Wales. The opportunities for businesses to grow and for households to benefit from enhanced on-line learning and entertainment are immense.”

BT's local network business, Openreach, have also committed to improve customer service and the transparency around its performance by producing regular reports on its website from the summer.

Openreach is also particularly keen to recruit more female engineers and has launched a campaign encouraging women to enter the world of engineering.

Joe Garner, chief executive of Openreach, said: “Millions of customers depend on broadband and they rely on us to keep them connected, whatever the weather. Our engineers do an incredible job.

“We are also keen to recruit women – as I’m keen to dispel the myth that being an engineer is an exclusively male vocation. Being an Openreach engineer is a terrific job and a rewarding career, regardless of your background, or gender.”
