BT could create 300 new jobs in Bodmin if the telecoms giant wins a shared services contract with Cornwall Council.

If BT is awarded the contract, it will open a new office at the Beacon Technology Park, where the local authority is planning to establish an administrative centre for the east of the county over the next two years.

Paul Ruda of BT told the Cornish Guardian that the plans to create jobs in Cornwall are dependent on a partnership deal being approved by the council.

Ann Kerridge, councillor for Bodmin West, who has been discussing the possibility of BT bringing the new jobs to Bodmin, described the potential move as a "big scheme".

"There is a lot to gain and it may be a very long time before Bodmin gets an opportunity like this," she added.

Research published earlier this year by Regeneris revealed the economic impact of BT's super-fast broadband rollout.

Within 15 years, the nationwide fibre broadband deployment will offer a £143 million boost to the average town, the study claimed.
