7:00am 20th March 2013
Dozens of jobs are being created in Truro.
BT is setting up a call centre in the city as it launches its new sports TV channel.
That will mean around fifteen permanent posts and sixty temporary roles.
It comes on the day youth unemployment could hit one million.
The launch of BT Sport, which will show 38 live Barclays Premier League matches on TV, including 18 of the top pick games previously only shown on Sky, will also safeguard the employment of 187 BT people who are being retrained to work for BT Sport customer support.
Gavin Patterson, chief executive of BT Retail, said: "BT Sport is an important new chapter for us and it also promises to give a boost to the UK economy by creating hundreds of new job opportunities across the UK.
"BT Sport is about giving people more choice about what they watch, where they watch it and how much they pay."7:00am 20th March 2013
