BT today announced it is closing over 270 of its 300 offices around the UK putting hundreds of jobs at risk.

The plan to reduce 90 per cent of its current locations into just 30 sites is part of a consolidation effort by the telecoms giant.

BT has confirmed the first eight places where the new streamlined offices will be are Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Ipswich (Adastral Park), London and Manchester.

Some existing BT buildings will be refurbished while others will see BT move into new offices.

The consolidation effort, called The Better Workplace Programme” by the firm, is the biggest of its type ever undertaken in the UK and is expected to be completed in 2023.

All of the new offices will have state-of-the-art 5G coverage.

BT Group chief executive Philip Jansen said: “The Better Workplace Programme is about bringing our people together in brilliant spaces, and transforming the way we work.

“Revealing these eight locations is just the first step; we have dedicated teams working on identifying the best buildings to move into and which ones to redesign for the future.

“As a result of this programme, BT people will be housed in inspiring offices that are better for our business and better for our customers.”
