My Final Year As A Finance Graduate

Posted on 28 September 2017 at 10:45 AM by Josh Skipper

It feels like only a few months ago that I turned up to our Bradford office, hugely overdressed in a full suit, for my first day on Virgin Media’s Finance Graduate Scheme. But this month marks the end of my second year on the scheme, with only one more placement to go.

This gave me a great overview of the scope of activities that Virgin Media are involved in, such as: corp...

My Career as a Finance Graduate

Posted on 20 December 2016 at 10:13 AM by Lee Rogers

I first came to Virgin Media as a fresh-faced intern in the Group Strategy team back in 2012. I was taken aback by the warm welcome and inclusive culture at Virgin Media and I loved the breadth of responsibilities I was given in my role despite being a third year university undergraduate. At the end of the internship I was invited to join the Finance Graduate Scheme after I’d completed my studies at the University of Bath. I chose to join Virgin Media’s Finance Graduate scheme because I felt...
