What is a BT Local Business

Are you looking for a new business opportunity? We’re growing our thriving community of management professionals, and we’re looking for ambitious, passionate, driven people to join us.

The BT Local Business (BTLB) network is made up of independently owned businesses working in partnership with us. Each BTLB gets sole use of our customer base for their local area, and full access to our industry-leading products and services. You’re backed by the strength of a global brand, while being able to provide a more personal service to businesses across the country.
