JT seeks students for new training schemes

Thursday 09 March 2023


Local students who want to launch their careers in telecoms are being invited to join one of the new talent schemes run by JT.

Following on from National Apprenticeship Week last month and now National Careers Week, JT is looking for Channel Island students who want to kickstart their career by gaining a professional qualification while working on the job.

Sixteen apprentices, bursaries and graduates are currently receiving on-the-job training, moving through various parts of the business.

JT started the scheme in 2011 and have seen a year on year increase in the diversity of applicants. Applications for new candidates closes 10 April.

Sarah Gosiewska, Head of Talent at JT, said all caliber of candidates are welcome no matter how developed their knowledge of the industry is.

“The beauty of our new talent schemes is that they help people identify the areas within the business they enjoy - helping them to grow in confidence and recognise where their strengths lie,” she said.

“Each new starter is trusted to work in real workplace situations, knowing they have a network of people dedicated to supporting their growth. I love seeing how they thrive alongside our experienced teams.

“This is a fast-paced industry so they must be willing to learn and work as part of a team. We firmly believe that learning should not stop just because formal education has.”
