BT has announced a major new recruitment drive just five months after canning its graduate placement scheme and mere hours after ONS figures showed that the recession is technically over.

BT has announced a major new recruitment drive just five months after canning its graduate placement scheme and mere hours after ONS figures showed that the recession is technically over.

The communications giant, which has axed swathes of workers in the past two years, claims that its new measures have the potential to help over 10,000 people back into work.

BT has linked up with the Business in the Community (BiTC) organisation to create 3,000 improved work placements for young people; school leavers and university graduates were hard particularly hard by the recession.

It has also launched a training programme to put 7,200 contact centre employees through an accredited learning scheme and gain an Apprenticeship certificate.

"Work placements can help young people decide where their future lies and so this improved scheme has our full support," said BT chairman Sir Michael Rake. "We are also keen that our employees receive training and so can gain apprenticeship qualifications."
