We underpin BTs many Business to Business (B2B) and Business to Consumer (B2C) needs and our customers rely on us to deliver. We have a fast growing external customer base alongside BT Group businesses and our people understand the critical nature of what we do.

Our team deliver services that support engineering field forces, including stock management, fulfilment, test and refurbishment, staging and configuration, spares management for networks, safety testing equipment, and logistics. We make sure there's a smooth end to end supply chain journey in everything we do, from sourcing and delivering the right screwdriver for our engineer to delivering a spare which could ensure our UK emergency services don't go down.

It's challenging, demand driven and attracts exceptional people who thrive in working in a rapidly changing environment. It's rewarding too, everyone who works in BT Supply Chain play an important role ensuring BT runs smoothly and our end customers receive a brilliant service.
