You might have guessed it, but Virgin Media Business is the business-to-business arm of Virgin Media, providing digital services to a whole host of businesses from SMEs to Enterprise right through to public sector organisations. Virgin Media Business has one platform, which represents everything we offer. At the core of our platform is our £13 billion network. It’s fast. It’s fibre optic. It’s nationwide. But our network is only as good as the products that connect to it. Which is why we place so much importance on our voice and data solutions and on the benefits of consolidated services. After that, there are all the applications and software that we curate to help our customers transform their organisations. And finally, wrapped around everything we do, is our customer service, which of course is dedicated and highly involved. So, there’s a lot more to business-to-business sales than meets the eye!
Our sales graduate scheme is designed to get your business sales career off to a blisteringly fast start! On this two-year scheme, you’ll rotate across our different sectors, which could include public sector, wholesale and/or enterprise.

And that's not all! We’ll also support you to achieve your ISMM Diploma in Sales and Marketing. With these skills you’ll be able to successfully profile customers and deliver impeccable bespoke services, all whilst building and maintaining fantastic relationships.
By the time we’ve finished with you, you’ll have outstanding solutions sales skills and will be able to call yourself an out and out B2B boffin!
