About the role

We have an exciting opportunity for you to join an upbeat, multifaceted, experienced team within Virgin Media Business (VMB) who are evolving IT infrastructures to SD-Wan working with our customers to transform their legacy WANs. You'll bring industry insight, build, and execute sales strategies and drive product focused expertise directly into our customers and our sales teams, delivering against the business targets set. You'll have responsibility for driving and winning significant new logo customers, in doing so drive incremental

revenue streams into VMB.

So that's what you'll get up to, but what about us?

Well, we're super proud of our history, helping communities to stay connected with oodles of top-notch products and services. We offer the full works – broadband, TV, mobile and landline – equipping our customers out with the very latest tech.

But it's not just what we do, but why we do it that really matters.

Our mission is to become the most recommended brand, by our people and our customers. A massive part of that journey is about how we ensure that our forward-thinking people have a working environment in which they can truly belong and thrive. For us, it's critical that every single person can bring, and be, their whole selves at work, and we're working hard every day to achieve this.

Tell me more, tell me more…

If successful, you'll join a prosperous and vibrant team of sales professionals who have experienced huge growth and opportunity. We are completely flexible to location as long as you are able to commute to an office for team collaborations.

The must haves:

  • You must have experience and technical knowledge of SD-WAN
  • Be able to demonstrate where you have mitigated displacement strategies to offset these threats
  • Have an appreciation of underlying network and associated technologies (e.g. MPLS and SIP trunking, Voice, LAN, IPT and Mobile services)
  • Evidence of driving the desired outcomes through effective collaboration, work and influence
  • Ability to drive ‘White Space’ discovery!

What's in it for you?

We know that benefits mean so much more than the 'stuff' we can give you, so we offer a wide range of support, rewards and tools - all focused on helping you to prioritise what really matters.

All work and no play just isn't our style! We're already planning our future ways of working, for when life becomes a little more normal again. We're constantly evolving our approach to enable you to find a great work life balance.

If you go on to be successful in your application, some of the many benefits include:

  • 25 days' annual leave, plus UK bank holidays.
  • A defined contribution pension scheme, run by Fidelity, matched up to 10%.
  • Commission with a 3-month guarantee+ Car Allowance
  • Access to wellbeing benefits such as the Unmind App, personal medical cover (which you can opt to upgrade to cover loved ones) and critical illness cover.
  • {Season ticket loans}.
  • Your birthday off every year, to treat yourself.
  • The option to buy and sell up to 5 days leave, to suit your personal needs.

Next Steps

If you think you've got some amazing skills to offer us, and Virgin Media feels like a place where you can belong, we'd love to learn more about you. Once you've submitted an application the next steps of the process, if successful, are likely to include an informal chat with the Hiring Manager followed by a more formal video interview and presentation.

When you apply, you'll be asked about any adjustments you might need to support the recruitment process. Let us know, and we'll be sure to discuss it with you.

Thanks for your patience in the meantime and for showing an interest in joining the Virgin Media family.
