Why this role matters

Our purpose is to use the power of communications to make a better world. For each other, for our customers, for society and our communities. We need you to help us do this.

BT Wholesale & Ventures is an extremely exciting part of BT and is at the heart of major transformations for BT Group and Openreach. We offer a vast portfolio of solutions starting with very innovative activities around Internet of Things (for the whole of BT), Robotics, solutions for connected cars. All the way to more traditional wholesale activities (Ethernet, MVNO, Broadband etc). We are also the home of numerous smaller Venture businesses (i.e. a unit dedicated for new digital street kiosks, a unit specialised in sports content broadcasting and many more!).

We are currently recruiting a Corporate Strategy Senior Manager to join us. In this role you would support the whole W&V's business unit in defining and embedding new transformative strategies in the business. Naturally there will be a lot of exposure across the business with specific duties supporting our CEO and our Board.

What you’ll be doing

  • Defining and validating new transformative strategies for specific areas of the business (e.g. IoT, Media & Broadcast, Wholesale) in collaboration with commercial and product functions.

  • Creating top level strategy material for the CEO and the Board as required, for example at his annual Board Operations Review or at external Investor Days.

  • Ensure the strategy is clearly and consistently communicated so that people understand how their role contributes to BT W&V’s vision and strategy.

  • Supporting the Director of Strategy for W&V in embedding strategic transformations in our operating model and by enabling the smooth running of W&V within the BT corporate governance.

  • Embedding and delivering new strategic initiatives involving other Lines of Businesses and BT Group when needed.

We’ll also need to see these on your CV:

  • Strong background in strategy development– and confident delivering material at Board level.

  • Previous experience in the technology or connectivity sector would be a benefit, but is not a must.

  • Strong analytics skills - rigour and ability to create, navigate and evolve complex governance.

  • Change agent - experience of leading complex group wide projects at an early stage.

  • Be customer focussed - passionate about bringing exciting new propositions to our customers.

  • Strong communication, influencing and relationship management skills to Director and MD level.

Why choose us?

On top of your basic salary you'll get a 10% bonus, £4,800 cash car allowance, free private healthcare and a number of softer employee benefits such as free BT broadband and BT sport, a very good pension, cycle to work schemes, half price cinema tickets and many more!

We are committed to offering people a great working environment and the opportunity progress in their careers.
