OA Supports BT’s Search for Cyber Security Talent

The BT Cyber Security Careers Insight Event will  help Service leavers and veterans start a career in cyber security.

Cyber security is an exciting and growing field. Serving and former officers have many skills and experiences the industry needs, including adaptability, leadership, resilience and teamwork. The OA has been helping organisations to promote their cyber security events, including the Deloitte Military Insight Day and The Security Cleared Expo.

Why attend?
Find out how to use the cyber skills and experience you have gained in the Armed Forces to find work in cyber security, and learn about the opportunities at BT. This event is specifically for Service leavers and veterans, and there are two sessions for people at different points in their transition journey.

The morning session is for people with cyber skills, experience and qualifications, looking for roles now or in the next few months. The afternoon session is aimed at people who will be leaving within the next two years, and aims to give pointers to relevant skills and qualifications so you can focus your resettlement.  Both sessions will give an overview of cyber security, BT Security and the opportunity to meet some of its employees who are veterans.

Mark Arscott, Head of Military Engagement at BT, said: “BT is one of the UK’s leading employers of Service leavers and veterans. And BT Security is one of the fastest-growing parts of the business, managing complex and secure networks. We provide our customers with the deepest, most complete range of off-the-shelf and bespoke security solutions available globally. And we want you to be part of our future – the BT Cyber Security Insight Event will give you the information you need to start your new career in this field.”
