Planners

ARE YOU READY TO MAKE BIG PLANS FOR THE FUTURE?

Virgin Media Planners design the network solutions that enable us to grow our industry leading network infrastructure.

We have various Planning Apprenticeship Schemes on offer – most of them are office-based roles involved with IT software to develop network solutions across our organisation, although some also involve site visits.

As a Network Capacity Planner apprentice, you’ll be trained by your scheme mentor and other workmates to deliver cost effective and appropriately scaled network solutions that move with the ever-changing needs of our business and customers.

Let’s talk about what you’ll be doing…

As part of the 24 month scheme, you’ll be shown how to make sure that our existing capacity is optimised while managing the lifecycle of our market leading infrastructure – completing capacity checks, helping us develop 12-18month network capacity plans and finding ways to improve our performance.

We’ll also need you to create and maintain individual capacity management plans and work closely with our Design, Build and Deploy teams to make any necessary tweaks to our network.

How are you going to get there?

As a technical role, you’ll need to have an A-level in a STEM based subject and GCSEs in Maths and English (Grades C+/4-9) or equivalent – as well as general understanding of routed and switched networks.

Knowledge of techniques used in analysing, assessing and resolving complex technology problems would be welcome but not essential. We’re just as interested in what makes people want to join one of the UK’s most forward thinking and fun-loving companies.

You’ll need to be relentless in your pursuit of results, able to work alone or as part of a team and constantly coming up with ways that will make our customers’ lives brighter, easier… and a bit more fun!

So, what can we do for you?

During our award-winning schemes, you’ll gain all the experience and exposure to our leading business practices that you’ll need to kick start an exciting career at Virgin Media – and we’ll pay you a decent salary with amazing benefits too!

In 2017, we announced our long-term vision of achieving 50/50 gender parity by 2025. It’s super-important for us to reflect equality, especially for STEM based subjects – and that’s why we’re encouraging men and women to bring their skills to tech roles.

We’re looking for talented men and women who are technically minded, great communicators and have a head full of innovative ideas. Our network is fast, efficient and prepared for the future – and you could say the same about our planners!
