Meet Lauren our 2016 People Intern! Have a read of the kinds of things she got up during her time as a Virgin Media Intern. Week 1- Starting my Internship at Virgin Media:                        So I’m writing this first entry on day 10 of working life and already I’m struggling to think back to last week when I first arrived for my internship at Virgin Media, it feels like I’ve been here for a lot longer!

When I first joined the scheme a year ago I was looking for a career that would challenge me, allow me to apply analytical skills I had developed throughout my degree to real life problems and give me the opportunity to learn.

The prize was made up of two parts: 1) A Saville Wave Test, and coaching session with Willis Towers Watson and 2) a Performance coaching session with Planet K2. Willis Towers Watson (WTW from now on…we know Virgin loves a good acronym) sent me over a Saville Wave Test to start with. It’s effectively a multiple choice test to map your personality and beh...
