BT Hiring for 70 Jobs in Dublin
A new procurement company owned by global communications provider BT Group, BT Sourced is due to open in April and will be hiring for over 70 new roles in Dublin.
BT announced late last year its plans to change its existing procurement capability as part of cost-saving efforts, with the establishment of a brand-new spin-out subsidiary in Dublin.
This new company is set to challenge the traditional ways of buying goods and services, through AI-powered digital technology and partnerships with start-ups and suppliers.
It will manage a budget of approximately €14.8 billion and will result in BT moving towards sustainable sourcing. The goal is to lower carbon emissions in the businesses supply chain by 42 percent by 2030.
The procurement company will be based at Grand Canal Plaza, where new hires will be working across networks, IT, services, connectivity and procurement transformation and analytics.
Cyril Pourrat, chief procurement officer for BT Group, described Dublin as a “vibrant city” with a “truly global outlook”.
“We’re looking for diverse, entrepreneurial and talented professionals to join our organisation and help build something from the start,” he said.
“BT Sourced will play a major role in BT’s transformation, drawing on the best technology and people to speed up and simplify the way we manage BT’s third-party spend worldwide.”
“BT’s decision to establish its new procurement company, BT Sourced, in Dublin is a strong endorsement of the deep pool of tech talent in Ireland”, says Martin Shanahan, IDA Ireland CEO.
“This new company will play a strategically important global function for the BT Group. Ireland offers a safe and stable investment location with access to the EU market, an educated and skilled workforce and an attractive environment where people want to live and work.”
