Springpod & BT Present:
BT: We’re not just Broadband and Telephones
Friday 8th March at 10am | 20 - 30 minutes
Say hello to our Speakers!
We’ve lined up a fantastic panel of guests who are as diverse as the broadcast we’ve got for you. Check out their profiles to find out more about them.
Rachel is a Higher Apprentice in Cyber Security, working in the Physical Security Team in Belfast. After ‘A’ levels in Mathematics, ICT and Music, Rachel applied for universities to study Computer Science and as music was still a strong career path option, she had also applied to study Violin at Trinity Conservatoire in London. However, she wanted to keep her options open, and felt that the BT Apprenticeship seemed like a really rewarding scheme within such a big company so she decided to apply and when she was offered a role, decided that was the best route for her. Rachel is currently working towards BSc Cyber Security Technical Professional and has completed a Level 4 NVQ in Information Security Professional Competence. She enjoys her role because every day is different, keeping her interested and excited to see what the working day has in store for her. She feels that she receives invaluable support and training from experts within that area and is offered a lot of exciting opportunities to network, whilst gaining experience.
Megan Rogers, is one of our Electronics apprentices from Bournemouth. In her spare time Megan is an acrobatic gymnastics coach so some would think not your typical engineering apprentice. Megan joined BT in 2016 and since then has become an advocate for women in engineering. Megan is a STEM ambassador, and her voluntary involvement at Induction events, setting up networking sessions for peers, being a mentor for others, attending schools and STEM events to promote engineering and female participation in that area, are all examples of her incredible passion to aid and inspire those around her. All this has led to Megan being nominated for the “We Are The City” rising star award which recognises and celebrates female participation in engineering roles. A true success story and one that we are all very proud of.
Tom O’Brien is a 2nd year TV and Digital Media full degree apprentice working at BT Tower. He’s 24 years old so is seen as the older one of the group as he completed a degree before taking on this role. He went to Solent Southampton University and studied “Football Studies” as he needed a degree to complement his CV for the roles in football he was applying for. It gave him tremendous insight into what he wanted out of life as he pursued a passion whilst working for professional teams around London but also picked up incredibly fun jobs on the side. Always looking to involve technology in work, once he decided the football industry was too volatile job security wise, he looked around for a job that would fit him best and that’s how he ended up at BT.
Jake Shepherd is a second year technical support apprentice working in the BT defence team in Chippenham, Wiltshire. Jake chose the apprenticeship route because he found he learnt better at sixth form by practical work rather than studying from a textbook. He was also keen to get paid while learning a new trade! Jake applied for the BT apprenticeship because he was interested in the world of IT and Telecommunications, and how it all works. Outside of work, Jake enjoys photography and going to music events.
